Grand Illusion Step 1

IMG_0219
Every year Bonnie Hunter does a Mystery Quilt – this year the name of the mystery is Grand Illusion. The link to the mystery is http://www.quiltville.blogspot.com/p/grand-illusion-mystery.html. Bonnie’s inspiration for the colors of this quilt was the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. MI. I have never been there but from Bonnies pictures it is a beautiful place that will bring you back to another century. Maybe that will be added to my bucket list.

I have been plugging away at getting these sections completed and I am enjoying the colors.  I am using a constant for the black and the yellow.  Sometimes if I use to many scraps I find that my quilts look a little bit muddled and I don’t want muddled quilts.

Here I am setting up a little ironing station.  When I iron my back is to the TV and that is unacceptable.  I moved my portable ironing pad on my movable set of drawers and all is good.

I am currently half way through my “broken dishes” blocks – I have a Christmas party to go to tonight so I will not be sewing but I hope to complete them on Friday so that I can start step 2 over the weekend.

Happy Stitching everyone.

 

Be Kind…
