I have chosen slightly different colors than Bonnie gave for the mystery, titled Grand Illusion. Her colors were chosen from the colors of the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island. Mine are a more subdued version because that is what I use and was in my stash. I am very proud, it all came from the stash except for the cheddar.
These will be sewn in pairs to complete this step. I had a large mishap doing this step, which resulted in this;
100 diamonds cut with the wrong angles. I had my template taped to the wrong side of the ruler and was using it upside-down. I could have cried,…..almost did, but instead, fixed the template and started over. I now have enough cut to make 1/4 of the units, and have the rest of the week to sew. I'm hoping a future clue will allow me to put these pieces to use in some way.
On another note, I received my hand crank from Cindy Peters and have one of the 128's sewing away. It is the favorite machine of one of the kids I am teaching to quilt.
I am going to attempt to link this post to the Bonnie Hunter blog; quiltville.blogspot.com. This will be a learning experience for me, so cross your fingers and
Keep on stitchin'
