Grand Illusion – Blowing Through Parts 2 & 3

By the title I bet you think I’ve completed both Parts 2 and 3 of Bonnie Hunter’s Grand Illusion Mystery…  I wish!  Oh, I’ve gotten some done, in between sneezing, blowing, napping and chicken noodle soup.  I’m fine, it’s just a mild cold, but this is not a good time of year to get a cold – right in the middle of a Bonnie Hunter mystery and Christmas!

Here’s is Part 2:

Grand-Illuison-Part-2I’ve cut all my pieces, marked my stitching lines and stitched one block.  Isn’t it cute?

Part 3 has a bit more progress:

Grand-Illusion-Part-3-WIPI’ve got 21 units completed and another 21 waiting for the final chain stitching.  I did find that this old ruler made it easier to sub-cut the strip units:

GI-Part-2---making-subcutsJust line it all up and slice through at the 2″, 4″, 6″, etc.  The ruler is made by June Tailor and is called a Shape Cut.

I do love the green batiks in this little block!

Now, I’m off to find some orange juice.  Have a wonderful, healthy week, y’all!

  1. Looks great, Cookie – email me so I can talk to you! I am at the point of collection of fabrics – I need a push! :)- Your parts look wonderful —- swoon! Take care!!!

  2. Feel better, Cookie. I finished 1 and 2 and am making great progress on 3. I have cut up a whole lot of fabric and wish I had one of those rulers. That would be nice. I am doing it the old fashioned way with a rotary cutter and ruler. Hahaha. See you tomorrow at board if you feel like you can make it. Jan

  3. I’ve been able to work on all three parts as well. Having so much fun with it even though I don’t have too many units finished.
    At this rate, I may be making a wall size

  4. An all-batik GI? Wonderful! Step 3 is easier than Step 2, for sure, but I had to keep cutting strips. I haven’t been able to figure out how these units will fit together. Hope you feel better this week.

  5. Feel better soon. No fun being sick when we are having fun with Bonnie. I am still stitchign along as I find spare time… I have the final Grandchildren gifts on the agenda this week. Played with my Quilt Buddies and made some progress on clue 3 today.
