Several years ago I watched with interest Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, "Roll, Roll Cotton Boll". I didn't participate until the quilt was revealed and I was hooked. This is my 5th BH mystery - I've done RRCB, Orca Bay, Easy Street and Celtic Solstice. Mysteries are hard for me and I'm always so uncertain at this point. Will I love it enough to justify spending so much time? But I've found that I do enjoy making the blocks and guessing what it will look like. So, I've taken the plunge again and started.
The newest mystery is called Grand Illusion and I'm using the colors that Bonnie suggested. These broken dishes blocks were clue one.
These pink and black blocks are Clue #2.
I didn't have to work today and this is where I started this morning.
After a fun sewing day, this is where I am now. I'm probably done until the next clue comes out Friday. I must admit, I don't love these colors, but the last color in the group is green. I'm going to reserve judgment for a few more clues. Bonnie has a way of making these random blocks look amazing.
I have tons more units to make even though I usually make mine smaller. I do need to make a few more broken dishes - I don't have nearly enough even if I make my quilt smaller.
Stay tuned, it's going to be a happy quilt.
