Grand Illusions Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter

This year my Mom and I did Bonnie Hunter's 2014 mystery quilt Grand Illusion. I really had to drag my Mom to the sew-in one of our friends hosted for the first clue.  My mom was worried about doing her first mystery quilt. She was afraid she wasn't going to like it or that she wouldn't finish the quilt.  (It might have something to do with my Orca Bay mystery that is still not finished.  I love that quilt pattern, however the last 2 years I haven't been able to sew very much.  Goal to self is to get that done this year.)

My mom was on it, making sure every step was finished within the week to make sure she was ready to start the next step.  From the beginning she knew she wasn't going to select green but didn't know what color she was going to replace it with.  She ended up picking purple because she had that in her stash and it went very well with the other colors.

I told her I would post some pictures so we could link her quilt top up.  Thank you Bonnie for doing this. We really enjoyed this mystery.  I especially enjoyed talking to my mom about each step. At time she was a fanatic about getting the steps done. However we enjoyed laughing about that also. I am on step 4 however I will keep sewing at mine.  I would like to get a block done before the link up goes down.

Thanks again! Oh just some times daughters do knows best, my Mom loves the quilt and enjoyed her time sewing it! Great Job Mom!
