It Took A Grand Illusion ... finally get me to blog again.  It's been years.  I've enjoyed watching the progress of so many participants in Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt.  I've been so tempted previous years but haven't had enough fabric to pull off the beautiful scrappy look that Bonnie's quilts are famous for.  This year, I decided to join in.  I needed the diversion over the holidays due to family illnesses, which is one of the reasons Bonnie chooses the holiday season to promote her mysteries.  I didn't have much in the way of pinks and blacks so I changed those colours to blues and purples.

It's not quite a flimsy yet, but getting there.  I need to do a little pressing, sew the rows together and play with the border size since I'm only doing a 3 by 4 block setting instead of the 5 by 5.

Check out all the other submissions at Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville blog.
Thank you Bonnie.  I really enjoyed participating.
