Blue Easy Breezy - Courthouse Steps

In the summer of 2020, Bonnie Hunter's leaders & enders project was the Easy Breezy quilt. This was an easy block to make and I made a lot of blocks in varying sizes.

I pulled 2.5" strips from the box and pieced an easy breezy in blues and whites for our oldest granddaughter.

Then I pulled all the blues from the 2" strip box and pieced an easy breezy with blues/yellows and whites. That is this quilt! (She is displayed on top of double delight, the medium blue border is the edge of the quilt.)

For this quilt I selected the cat paws pattern. These are giant cat paws!

She measures 88.5" by 101" and will probably someday go to one of our grandchildren. 


There is one more quilt to have the binding finished. November has been a very busy month and I haven't haven't had time to finish the last quilt. I have something more special than straight edge binding planned for Orange Sherbet.

And because I'm glad to have Blue Easy Breezy-Courthouse Steps finished, I'll leave you with another picture. You just have to love scrappy blue & yellow quilts!

Wonderful! I love the strong sense of overall balance, and those yellows running through this add a light focus.

Scraps quilts are best hugs a grandmother can give, especially when quilted with such a fun design as cat's paw.
