For those of you following along with Bonnie Hunter’s latest mystery quilt, Grand Illusion, we got to play with our green fabric this week for clue #3! The instructions are still available from now until spring on Bonnie’s blog if you want to join in at any time.
For my quilt, I am mostly using Moda Grunges. For the greens, however, I am adding interest by using 4 different bright greens which match to Bonnie’s color recommendation. For more on the recommendations, see my earlier post here.
These are my greens:
- Green Google It from the Giggles fabric line by Me and My Sister Designs
- Swirly Scroll Lime from Wilmington Prints
- Just Color Lime from Studio E Fabrics
- Celery from the Folklore line by Lily Ashbury for Moda
I mostly stitch on the weekends and in the evenings after work so I finished assembling these units for part 3 tonight.
As I turned around to grab my camera, my quilt inspector sneaked in behind me and decided to pose with the blocks.
I’m making half the total number of units for a smaller quilt. Since we’ve now finished three clues, here are my units together:
This is going to be a very bright and cheerful quilt! Tonight, I had hoped to go to a local quilt guild meeting, but hubby and I are in the process of repainting some rooms. One of those rooms is my quilting room so everything is quite hectic and unorganized. I can’t wait to get the new color on the walls and reveal it here soon.
