With my sister Polly’s persuasion, I decided to join in the fun of making Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt, Grand Illusion this year.
I’ve thought long and hard about fabric selection considering the value of the fabrics along with the color. And yet, we don’t know how the quilt will end up so it’s hard to know which values to use. I guess it’s all part of the fun.
Bonnie posted the first clue on Friday and I’ve made 30 of the 100 broken plate blocks that are needed. Then I arranged them just so to get some sort of a design.
This is last year’s mystery quilt, Celtic Solstice, that Polly and I made. I love the way both of these quilts turned out in their own unique color ways, so different, and yet so alike!
