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!
blessings, denise  :D


  1. I think they are just as pretty with a more controlled scrappy Denise, I love your choices. Mine are scrappy but not nearly as much as Bonnie's I want to use stash & not purchase more till each color is gone!

  2. Denise, I found you! Your fabrics are great and your blocks are fantastic especially for a woman who just broke her arm unimaginably so recently. You could teach us all a thing or two. Can't wait to see where this leads.

  3. It's going to be very interesting to see how this mystery unfolds. Great fabrics and progress!
