What Am I Working On?

I have been working on a mini-version of Grand Illusion Mystery by Bonnie Hunter.  When I say mini, I really do mean mini! I took the measurements she gave subtracted 1/2" then divided the number in half and then added back in the 1/2" for the seams.

There is a part of me that wanted to stop the process completely BUT once I calmed down the design has grown on me and I am not freaking out too much at my color choices.  I should admit to you that my original intention had not been to do a reduced sized Quilt, but to make a reduced AMOUNT of blocks.  So I will confess when I was in the process of making the gazillion HST's I simply made the wrong size so I cut them down to mini-version.  AND trust me, it doesn't take less work just because the block sizes are smaller.

Where I am at:
Week 1-Half the blocks completed
Week 2-Quarter of the Blocks completed
Week 3-Half the blocks completed
Week 4-HST & Squares are cut, ready to assemble all blocks
Week 5-All the blocks are completed

I need to go check the mail box this afternoon because I ran out of my two solids and I am waiting to get my box!  In the meantime, I plan to throw a couple of blocks together with the parts I have here.

If I am able to I will try to post an update tonight!!

  1. I can't wait to see it because you color scheme is so different from mine. I also LOVE that you did it in a mini virsion. Mini is ALWAYS cuter! I'll be checking back to see how this all turns out.

  2. I cannot wait to see it! I agree those minis take just as long!

  3. That should look great. What a great idea it is to do a mini version.


I love to hear from my readers!
