My favorite Christmas gift so far...

is a lovely pair of pot holders made for me by my friend and fellow-quilter Robyn Bellamy. She's really talented and always works with great fabrics, and I think she was going to start an Etsy site. If I can get the link I'll list it for you so you can see more of her work.

Grand Illusion Mystery: Week 3

Was anyone else as relieved as I was not to have to work with tiny triangles this week???? Please note, I'm not whining, I'm just really happy to be able to sew some simple squares together for a change. I'm having lots of fun working on this mystery, and love looking at everyone's progress on Bonnie's blog.

Week 2 of the Grand Mystery

I managed to get a bunch of the pieces cut and a few of them sewn together this weekend. I used the 3rd method Bonnie suggested, with the bonus half-square units, thinking it would be fun to have the extras for some future project. Here's a representative sample so far:

Week 1---Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery!

Woo Hoo! It's finally time for this year's mystery!
Here's a photo of a bit of my progress so far on the first week's clue. I've changed the colors a bit from Bonnie's suggestions, just for the fun of it. My main color is orange, instead of yellow, just because when I went to the quilt store to scout for fabrics that day it was the orange I fell in love with.
Greetings to all fellow mystery quilters! I know we're going to have a fun journey together.
Best wishes,
Ginny in Brooklyn
