Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt - Clue #4

Bonnie posted Clue #4 of her Grand Illusions Mystery Quilt!  Yippee!

You can read all about it here on her blog:

Here is my progress...

This clue used more of the yellow and black squares from Clue #1.

Then added with these two half-square triangles...

to make these two different Broken Dishes units...

So here is Clue #4...the only two I have made!

Been busy with physical therapy for this crazy broken arm.  
Have to schedule surgery for a pesky hernia.
Getting ready to go to Puerto Rico for a wedding.

Wishing you all a blessed Christmas.

Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt 2014

Since the day after Thanksgiving I have been participating in
Bonnie Hunter's 2014 Mystery Quilt - Grand Illusions.

You can read all about it here:

I wanted to share my version with ya'll.

First - here are my fabric choices:

Bonnie chose her colors based on the beautiful
Grand Illusion Hotel she recently visited.

She is going with a scrappy quilt - using several fabrics in each color.
I wanted to use the same fabrics throughout my quilt.
I also chose this fun pink print for my "neutral" fabric.

Clue #1:

Lots of Half-Square Triangles...

Sewn together with some yellow and black squares...

Makes this cute little unit.  Clue #1 complete!

Clue #2:

Using some pink and black squares and background rectangles...

Resulted in this diagonal unit for Clue #2.  Clue #2 in progress!

Clue #3:

Using strips of the green, black, and background fabrics
gave me my Clue #3 units.  Clue #3 - lots more to go!

It's going to be quite interesting to see how all these units go together.
Isn't it?  I can't wait!

I love Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts and scrappy quilts.
If you are not familiar with her, then you will want to check her out.

You will be able to visit some of the other participant's blogs
on Bonnie's Monday Link-Up.

Have fun!  That's what it's all about!
