Grand Illusion is a Flimsy!

 
Oh my goodness, its still January and my
Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt
is a flimsy!!
 
YIPPEE!!!
 
 
I would just like to state that I am so glad that I
changed a few colors in this quilt.
I am not a fan of Yellow and changed it to 
this toffee color...and my pinks are
much darker than Bonnies. 
 
Like Bonnie always says
 "Make it your own, its YOUR quilt!"
 

 
Many thanks to Dahlia for Cat testing
and approving another
Mystery Quilt....
 
 
I am sending this quilt to my best quilty buddy
Kathy in Ohio for some
 BOMB Longarm quilting!!

QBSA Quilt Top Complete!

 
For over a year now I have been swapping
 Quilt Blocks monthly with
Quilting Block Swaps Australia (QBSA) group.
 
My block choice was the Lonestar block
 (found on Craftsy for free).
I asked my partners to use scraps only and any
navy blue or dark blue background. 
 
 
 
Needless to say I received many beautiful blocks
in the mail...I love squishy mail so much! 
I was delighted to see all the wonderful talent that arrived each month, just gorgeous blocks. 
 The fabrics that each quilter used were all so unique...
 
 
 
 
I received a couple of blocks from bloggy friends
in the US and made a couple myself...then I sashed them with fabric crumbs that I sewed onto strips of
paper.  So lots of little bits were used up!
 
Now to find someone to work some quilty magic on
it...it needs longarming
with so many little pieces in it...
 
I love this quilt and its MINE!!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
 
Go sew something!!

Quilt Doodles BOM 2014 Reveal and Blog Hop!



Its that wonderful time to reveal our Quilt Doodles BOM 2014!!!
hosted by Cindy @ http://quiltdoodledesigns.blogspot.com/


I really enjoyed this monthly row by row Quilt-a-long...
It was all made with 2.5" Squares, my favorite!!

Each month we were given a free pattern to make
and post our progress...


We did a row of Christmas lights...
Ice Skates....
Stars...



Super cute mugs of cocoa...
Christmas Peppermint Candies...
Snowmen!!!

& even a few more...


This is the backing, funny thing about it is...I got it for 
$1 a yard years ago....never knew what the heck I would use it for.

Its perfect for this wintery quilt!

I quilted it myself on my Kenmore 10 machine, her name is 
"Lenore",  just making wavy lines across the quilt...
turned out GREAT!

Heres the whole quilt!!  I love it!



So theres my turn on the Blog Hop Schedule...check the schedule

RSC 2015 Scrap Happy Saturday!


Hello everyone!

I have decided to do a second block for the RSC 2015 this year, I'm
not surprised by this because I did two sets of blocks last year too
which I might add, I still need to set and sew together...wink wink..

So my first set I showed you last time was the 
Scrap Jar Stars...


My second set will be these...Scrappy Wonky Stars!


Ya'll know how much I love those little squares!

Thanks for stopping by!
