This week, the group of ladies I've been working with at the quilt shop couldn't meet, as there is another group that meets on the first Sunday of the month at the quilt shop. It's a big group and would have left us with no room at all LOL. So I worked at home to finish Clue 3.
Want to play along? You can get all the clues from Bonnie's blog here:
You should also check out the blogs of all the other quilters who are participating in this mystery. Their work is beautiful!
Mystery Monday Link-Up, Part 3
I dug into my stash of neutrals, I dug into my stash of strips for golds, and I cut from gold yardage bought for this mystery, and I came up with enough variety to make my strip sets for the 4-patches we need to make for this clue.
Here they are, my 4-patches all finished! I'm pleased with how they turned out. There's definitely enough contrast between the gold fabrics and the neutrals.
I got the extra pieces cut out too, so they are ready to go whenever Bonnie says they are needed.
I'm still working on the units from Grand Illusion as my Leaders and Enders.
And here you go, all my Grand Illusion blocks are finished!
It was always my goal to use these blocks, and the other Grand Illusion units, to make 2-3 charity quilts. I've been collecting images of various settings that others have created for their quilts, these will help me decide how to proceed with my charity quilts.
As you may know, I've been using my 1947 Featherweight to sew these clues and the GI blocks. I got it from a local lady who buys and restores these machines, so it doesn't have any history with my family. I hadn't named her, but lately I've been feeling the need to name her. I Googled popular names from 1947, and with the help of my children we've decided that her name should be Bonnie. I think it's fitting, don't you? :)
I hope you're making progress on your Allietare units!
