Allietare Clue 2

Sunday is my day to work on the mystery, so I headed off to the quilt shop to work on Clue #2.  Want to play along?  You can get all the information for this mystery at Bonnie's blog:

Mystery Monday Link-Up, Part 2

I got to the quilt shop, only to find that I was the only one of our quilt group who could make it.  One other stopped by while out doing other things, unfortunately she was feeling  under the weather.  I hope she feels better soon!

The quilt shop is open for 5 hours on Sundays, and I put that time to good use!  While sewing together the units for this week's clue, I also continued using the pieces from last year's mystery, Grand Illusion, as leaders and enders.

Here is some of my work in progress, with my Featherweight getting a good workout.

In the time I had at the quilt shop, I got all the units for this clue sewn and pressed, hooray!

I also managed to make excellent progress on assembling the Grand Illusion units.  Next week the block will be taking shape!

I also have ready the extra pieces that Bonnie said to cut.

I'm so thankful for the time at the quilt shop.  It was distraction free time, which allowed me to get these units finished so I can focus on other projects the rest of the week.

How are all of you doing?  Do you have Christmas gifts to finish up?  I have some commissions to finish and other quilt tops to get quilted, but I should be able to get them all done in time for their deadlines.  I just have to focus until Clue #3 is released LOL.


  1. Love your colors for clue #2, I fear my grey might be too dark. You have a lovely assortment of reds. Grand Illusion is coming along nicely too, beautiful colors.

  2. Really like your choices. I wanted to get the clue done over the wkend so that I could finish up I remaining gift to make before we fly to Seattle on Friday.

  3. Sounds like a very productive time at the quilt shop. It's fun to see a Grand Illusion coming together, too.

  4. I don't set holiday deadlines for projects. I just finish things when I can and gift them likewise. So many other things to worry about without fretting over something that can wait. I'll admit that I have used one part of a Bonnie mystery as a leader/ender for the current part. Looking great! and I love the purple in your Grand Illusion.

  5. Both mysteries are looking good!
