Easy Street, again

I got the borders sewn onto my Easy Street Quilt two nights ago, and last night I got the backing pieced.  Here's how it looks --

I must apologize for the poor photo - but it's the middle of winter, so I can't (or won't) take it outside, and I don't get a lot of light in my house.  That, plus the fact that I really have no place to lay it out, except on the bed!  I debated whether or not to add borders.  Usually I prefer my quilts without, but I wanted it to be a little bigger - to fit my queen sized bed for sure.

This will be the backing - it's just kind of folded and in a heap here.

It's cold this morning..... and supposed to be even colder tonight.  I think they have predicted a low of -13 tonight, with wind chills in the 30 below range.  Yikes!  

So, Easy Street is ready to go to the quilter.  And I am happy to have completed it.  I think this is the largest quilt I have made, ever.... or at least in a very long time!  I made a Thimbleberries Quilt back in the 90's that I know is queen-sized.  

Everyone have a great day - stay warm!

Now you are ahead of me again. I still don't know what backing to use. These will be fun for showing at the quilt show! front and center if we do the hanging!

Your Easy Street turned out just great! Love the color scheme!

So this is great! I love your colours. I've never done a Bonnie Hunter before, so I chose her colours. But to join all the blocks takes time, and I've done the corners and a couple of A and B blocks.

Love it, Karen - fabrics are really stunning (even in the poor light!) and you can tell how much work you've put into it :)
