I am making good progress on the Grand Illusion mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter. We are on step #2 and I am making half of the units for this quilt since I don't need another huge quilt right now, and I have some Christmas gifts to make in the next couple of weeks.
Here is how my work table looked last Friday with all the blocks from step #1 sewn, and the blocks from step #2 cut out. I used the old fashioned way of adding the triangles to the end of the rectangles (which was Bonnie's method #3 in the pattern).
The worst part of this step was marking 400 lines on triangles.
(I drew the second line on every square so I could get the bonus HST's to play with)
But you know Bonnie's motto - NO whining! So, I won't! I marked the lines while watching endless Christmas movies on the Women's TV Network and it was actually fun.
I have a few double diamond blocks finished. Here are the first 16 arranged in a fun layout. I plan to be finished all the blocks by Friday's reveal of step #3.
