Mystery Quilt Grand Illusion

I have just finished Step 3 of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt Grand Illusion.  Needless to say I am doing the Happy Dance.  Now I can go back to Steps 1 and 2 to work on those blocks some more.     
In between I have been working on a knitting project.  Never a dull moment.

Step 3 of MQ Grand Illusion

Well I am  a little further along on the MQ Grand Illusion by Bonnie Hunter.  I now have 88 blocks of Step 1, 38 blocks of Step 2 and 10 blocks of Step 3.  I work a little on each Step and even though I haven't finished a Step I am having fun.  Now I am really not doing scrappy ( I didn't have enough of the colors needed), I have done a little scrappy with Step 3.  Hope it works out OK.

Monday Link Up

I have not completed either Step 1 or Step 2 of the MQ Grand Illusion.  So I still have a long way to go, but I will get 'er done.
This is my backing.  It was a donation fabric and I was lucky to be the recipient.  It has most of the MQ colors in it.  Life doesn't get better than that (LOL).

Grand Illusion Part 2

Part 2 of Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion MQ came out this morning.  I have done my first block and published the picture on facebook, when I realized my white diamonds were not lined up.  So I am just going to have try harder as far as that goes.  Posting it here also.
Going to my Saturday sewing group tomorrow and hopefully I will get further on this MQ.

Grand Illusion MQ

I did not get too far with my Grand Illusion Mystery quilt blocks as I only have 23 done.  I can work on them before the next clue comes out.  I am enjoying all of the posts and pictures of others and they are all so pretty.  It's a  fun group to be doing the MQ with.

Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt

The long awaited "Grand Illusion" mystery quilt is here and clue #l is out. I am excited right along with everyone that is participating.  Bonnie is wonderful to give us another free MQ.  I did last year's quilt and still need to quilt it.  Thank you Bonnie for sharing so much with us.  Here is my first block of "Grand Illusion".  It's going to be fun.

Blog Problems

Yea, I am back.  I changed emails and everything went wrong.  I could not post on my blog.  I was very upset.  But I kept working at it and hopefully things have straightened out for me.  I am keeping my fingers crossed,  I will posted my projects later.  Just happy to have worked things out.

Upcoming Retreat Fabric Challenge done

I finished another quilt over last weekend. I rent the longarm at Beth's Quilt Shop in Blanchard. I am not experienced on the longarm, so I did a meandering pattern.

This much is done and the star is complete--now for the background
It is not perfect, but most of this scrappy fabric is now gone.

What to do now????

25 small scrappy diamonds sewn together. Trying to figure out where to go from here. Paper foundation is still on the back, explains why edges are curled.     SUPERQUILTER
