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.
I am following along with her quilt too! My first MQ ever. So far I only have the black cut out..hopefully this weekend I can get more done. Looking forward to seeing your progress. 🙂
This is my 3rd Bonnie mystery. I have a great time doing them and I always get them done (which isn’t always the case with quilts)!
Your units look great and I like the constant black, it looks like snow!! This is my second MQ with Bonnie and I love it also.
Thank Kathi -Bonnie does make it fun to “play” along with her mysteries! Enjoy the process and thanks for commenting!
