Easy Street is a finished quilt! But it was not an easy quilt in any way! This was the 2012 mystery from Bonnie Hunter. It's a large quilt, with over 2,300 pieces that I cut and sewed together over the past 3 years. And it's an on point setting which was challenging at times.
But it's DONE!
I was so pleased with my finished quilt that I convinced a couple of friends to come with me to do a photo shoot at the lake. The convincing process took some time and included some chocolate bribery, but the actual photo shoot took much longer!
During the complex series of attempts to get a photo of the entire quilt, great gusts of wind came out of nowhere, and the quilt became a sail! There are three strong women behind that quilt holding it up, while at the same time trying to prevent it from blowing away. This was the best shot I could get.
How do magazine photographers do this?!?
Well, I guess they don't go to the lake for ambience!
This photo shows the gorgeous fall leaves and what a wonderful sunny day it was. The lighting of the quilt isn't great, but the leaves are perfectly lit!
A huge thank you to Bonnie Hunter for this fun mystery project, and hugs all around to my friends who are such good sports and are up for any kind of crazy adventure.
To see more quilts that have been finished in the month of October, hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes. And then hop over to Jo's to see how the mystery quilters are getting along with their pre-mystery finishes.
