Easy Street Mystery Clue #2 complete

My Easy Street container is getting fuller and fuller. I am so very satisfied with my own color choice as well as Our Bonnie's color choices. It's a good thing that I am doing two colorways. Even if the units do not make it into two Easy Streets, they will get used.

I am starting a small drawered container unit with pre-cut HST and with pre-cut Companion Angle units. Can only increase my productivity!!!!!

And as I was cutting a couple days ago I began filling those drawers. The only unit I needed was the 2" triangle cut with the Companion Angle ruler. The rest are to feed the drawers!! WHOOHOOOT!!!!

I discovered, quite by accident a few years ago, that starting the strip with the EZ Angle ruler first, set up the angle correctly for the Companion Angle cut.

And I decided that I want a constant background in my own colorway of Easy Street. So I pressed and re-cut 10 more 2" strips. They are now sewn together and need pressed and sub-cut. Easy Peasy!!!

When I saw your two colourways they looked so good I thought "why not do two". So I got up from the computer, walked to the sewing room and looked at the baskets of unfinished projects and said "that's why not - go finish something first" lol. Seriously, like your choices.

Oh, Suebee, I like both colorways. You are so smart to be building a stash of block units. I'm doing well right now just to do this week's parts. Can't wait to see our quilts.

Oh my - I am so jealous seeing everyone's flying geese! I can't wait to get started on mine - hoping to get them done this week so I can be ready for the next clue Friday :*) Yours are just gorgeous! I'm looking forward to seeing how your colors turn out. I always enjoy seeing the different color schemes for Bonnie's mysteries :*)

Love both the colors you chose and the idea to stash half square triangle makings for another project. I made my first cut with the easy angle when cutting with my companion ruler for the main part of the geese. I will make a bin for these HST parts. Thanks for the idea.

I love the scrap users system - there's always something ready cut to get you started on something new. Great looking Easy Street units. I'm making two as well - one pastels one Bonnie's colours.

What a great idea to add into the scrap users system pre-cut triangles. I have a free container - might have to give it a whirl myself! Your units are looking fantastic.
