The snow continued to fall here yesterday and through the night, with lots of shoveling happening today to find the sidewalks and dig out the vehicles.
Yes... I know that I should take down the Christmas decorations, but it's snowy and cold outside!
Bonnie Hunter is having a link up for the Grand Illusion mystery quilts being made from her mystery pattern - click here to see the quilts. I worked hard on mine last week and got it to this stage.
If you follow my blog you might remember that I had to remove my green fabric all together. The green fabric I bought was ... je ne sais quoi ... too flat, or too grey, or too dull? As soon as I removed the green, I liked my quilt so much better. That issue doesn't happen when you go scrappy (instead of using yardage like I did) because with a wide variety of different greens in there, it would have all worked together. Lesson learned!
Anyway, I made 12 blocks, removed the green sashing strips and have started working on the borders. I have lots of the blue and the cream floral fabrics left, but not much of the other fabrics, so am not sure what I will do next in terms of adding more borders. It was such a fun mystery to sew, since I love lots of small pieces to put together like a jigsaw puzzle! To see more mystery quilts, hop over to Quiltville.
