Easy Street Mystery Clue 7

Bonnie has posted the final two clues for a rapid fire finish (there will be nothing rapid about it around here!) Clue 7 was posted on Hogmanay and Clue 8 on New Years Day. I have just finished Part 7 and am really happy to see how the quilt is developing now we have started assembling everything.
We had to piece some more units...
And then make the corners and setting triangles...
I still have to piece the 16 large centre blocks and assemble the quilt top, which will take some time! I have also pulled some fabrics to start thinking about borders. Bonnie has framed her blocks with a narrow 1" inner border and wider 4 1/2" outer border which works beautifully, I think I will do the same. Each of these fabric combinations gives a totally different look to the quilt, I will have to wait until the whole top is together before I decide. Which do you prefer?

  2. Oh my, you have such beautiful fabrics. I love all of them. 1st, 3rd and 4th are better to me than 2nd, maybe because of the scale. But I love all four. I wish you were my personal fabric shopper!

  7. I love your colors! Beautiful! If it were me, I'd choose the brown border. I love that chocolate brown and it really frames the rest of the quilt nicely.

  11. Ooo, I love the romantic fabrics you're using. :) The first paisley is my absolute favorite for your wide border, with the fourth choice as my second choice. Love them with your piecing.

  12. I too like the first paisley for the border - brown would also be my second choice. Your colors are so soft and pretty.

  13. Have you tried the brown as the narrow border, then maybe again as the binding, with one of those lovely prints in between?
