DWM: swap results and Easy Street!

"I need to make a graduation quilt in brown and blue," read the message on the Quilters' Flea Market list.  "Does anyone have orphan blocks or a quilt top you're willing to sell?" I did!  I offered to swap  this  flimsy  for fabric.  Here's what she sent.  She's delighted with the flimsy and I'm delighted with the fabric. 
TA-DAA!  Here is Easy Street, assembled.  It's about 86 x 86.  I admit that when I put the blocks up I thought I didn't like it.  But now that it's put together -- WOW.

I have to figure out what the borders will be. Bonnie used a narrow inner border of violet and a wider outer border of turquoise. I don't think I have enough of any one turquoise....I'll need to rootle around in my stash for a creative solution.

Thank you, Bonnie, for another wonderful mystery. I don't know how you do it, but I'm glad you do!

Tune in here here for Bonnie's Mystery Monday link up, and tune in here for Judy's Design Wall Monday. 

(Now that ES is assembled I'm looking forward to working on another project.)

  6. Nann your quilt is wonderful. I envy you with the center part done... mine is back at clue 3 or4. I'm wondering how purple mine will look in the end as I have lots of different purples I've been using. By the way, you don't have links to either Linky parties.

  12. Looking great. It is huge that's why I decided to not put a border on mine.
