Easy Street Mystery Clue 4

Bonnie posted Clue 4 for the Easy Street Mystery yesterday, an easy clue this week, we had to make some more flying geese...

and then add them to the geese we made in week 2, to make stacked geese, fast and fun!
I am sure lots of clever people have figured out what we are making, but I don't have a clue! I am just really enjoying sewing without thinking too much!

EDITED - Thanks to Diane (no-reply blogger) for pointing out that I have sewn these upside down! The question is, do I unpick them all or leave them and see if it really matters? I am already using different colours to Bonnie, maybe I can pretend I always meant my pattern to be different too!!

P.S. You can see what everyone else is up to over on Bonnie's link up page HERE

  1. I really like your color choices (and fabrics)! I recognize some of your pretty browns. Great job staying on top of the clues too.

  3. Elaine, I'm doing Easy Street also, and am working on step 4. You're colors are so rich and lovely. It's a pleasure to yours in progress. Please check step 4, because the step 2 flying geese go on top, with the step 4 geese on the bottom in these new units. Gosh, it was hard to write this, but I've checked and rechecked because I keep reversing them myself.

    1. Thank you! I tried to send you an email but you are a no-reply blogger! I thought they looked odd - thanks for pointing out they are upside down!!

  4. Elaine, Sorry about that. Using blogger is new for me, not sure if I'll stick w/ it. Hey, I like your idea of waiting to see how these units are used before unpicking them.clever!

  5. I'd leave them...
    I did two upside down and took them apart, but I'd never bother with 64 :) They will be lovely.

  6. I love, love, love your colors. Whenever I see your next step, I think I should make another quilt using browns and reds. Beautiful. Re the upside down - I'd leave them as is. If you don't like it later, I'd make more, and use these lovely pieces in another quilt. Undoing 64 anythings is too much!

  7. I'm glad to read about the upside down units -- I probably would never have noticed on my own but I'm not there yet. Do you have a lot of telly viewing in store for you soon? It would be a good time to unstitch those units. But, honestly, I think I'd wait too.

  8. I love your fabric choices, and I'd leave them as is also. I think they will look just fine. I'm with Judy, undoing 64 anythingies would be to much for me...lol.

  9. Love the richness of your colors. I did a few upside down myself. I don't know if it would matter if they are upside down. Your geese could fly in the opposite direction! Why not!

    Happy Holidays!

  11. Personally, I'd leave them the way they are. You can always unpick or make new ones later if you decide it's important. In the mean time, it's your quilt so you should feel free to make it your way, including the OOPS parts. Consider it "Improvisation on a Quilt Theme". :)

  12. Ask Bonnie if you should fix them or not.

  13. Pretty color combination! I agree with most of the others; wait and see how these units are going into the quilt before you decide to unpick all of them! Other than other quilters making this mystery, who will know that they are "wrong" when they see the quilt in real life?

  14. Love your colors! I sewed all the purples Together and got Geese Diamonds hahaha Didn't think of unpicking them so made another 64 *ugh* then STILL had one wrong, at this point I am putting some of both into my quilt as a Design Change!! Our quilts will be even MORE unique :-) No worries

  15. The reds and browns look so rich and warm. I reversed my purple/aqua on the last set of flying geese so I just made more. I'd be inclined to leave yours as is until we see how they fit together. It might look great!

  16. oh I love your colours for this quilt. I am not sewing it, but am travelling around and enjoying the progress of various quilters. Will be signing up as a follower as I really want to see how yours, with the different fabric selection, turns out.

  17. Your flying geese look great. I just used up most of that color combination I my stash. Can't wait to see it together! Thanks for stopping by my blog and I thought I would come by and see yours!
