Grand Illusion part#2 and Turkey Tracks
I am loving this mystery. Finished all my Step #2 diamond units, love the colors together. I don't usually do pink and purple. I used Bonnie's #3 method, it worked for all those chevrons in Celtic Solstice , and worked well for this step. 100 little beauties. Now we just need to use our green, oh my what will she have in store for us next week.
Here is step 1 and 2 together.
Not a very good photo, the turquoise is much brighter.
And those bonus HST triangles, how about a pinwheel star block ? Measures 5 1/2". Need to adjust my seam for the next ones...some wonky points in my first try.
Not only am I working on this MQ, I have three of Bonnie's books. Both Shirt Tail books and String Fling. Told myself I must make at least one from each book, and I have a lot to choose from. I decided to use up some stash and make Turkey Tracks scrappy, rather than the red that Bonnie did. Here is what I have done so far. All of my flying geese, the bricks are cut and am starting on the string blocks. Turkey Tracks is in Bonnie's Spring Fling book
Very cold up north and getting a fair bit of snow, That is ok I love our bright sun shiney days. the sun makes thlsnow sparkle like a million diamonds. Winter is my sewing time :)
I am linking to Bonnie's Link Up Monday Blog
I encourage you to go and have a look at how my fellow bloggers are progressing with their Grand Illusion.
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.
