Easy Street Step #3

Busy day today, finished up step #3. I am using orange instead of purple.  It was nice to add some turquoise to the mix.  I used Bonnie's method for making these and they went quite fast.
Here are all three steps together.
I was busy this week making Big Star Blocks that measure 25" , so doing these little 3 1/2" units was a big switch.  Here are three of the big blocks. They are from a Youtube that Missouri quilt has out. And if you would like to see that others are doing with the Easy Street Mystery Quilt check it out here: http://quiltville.blogspot.ca/2012/12/mystery-monday-link-up-part-3.html
I am in a swap and have five more to make and get in the mail to my partners.   Our weather remains the same very cold, on the plus side today it was a beautiful bright sunny day with no snow.  I love these bright sparkling winter days.  Hope you are having a good weekend.

It is so much fun, seeing how people use different colors. I am definitely not daring enough!

I love how your Easy Street is looking. Great colours. I am doing everything Bonnie says and it is coming along just great. Really easy! so far...

I love your colors. Bonnie's colors are lovely, but sometimes it is just refreshing to run across a little twist. It's going to be a beauty. I saw that tutorial and thought I'd give it a try at some point, your blocks are awesome.

Your colour choices are lovely, I wish I had your vision of what alternatives to use. This is my first mystery quilt, so I have played safe and used Bonnie's colours. Maybe next time I will loosely the temerity and go it alone on fabrics.
