Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt 2014

November 28, 2014...I jumped out of bed, pulled up Bonnie Hunter's blog and there it was!  The first clue!  Grabbing my easy angle ruler and my rotary cutter, I began following her every step! I'm so excited!  This is my first mystery quilt! Each Friday, a new clue will be released.  Stay tuned for more pictures and progress!  http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2014/12/mystery-monday-link-up-part-1.html

Living back in the states and loving quilting!

I looked at my last post and could not believe how much time has pasted....almost two years!

We are back living stateside and loving every bit of it!  Access to bead store, fabric stores and ample parking makes me a happy woman!

The first week we moved here, I found a quilt shop and I've been in LOVE ever since!  There is so much to do and not enough hours in the day to make all the things out of fabric I want to make!  I am like a kid in a candy store! Over the last year, I've made several quilts, pillows and wall hangings.  I'm learning to machine quilt, have had the pleasure to use a long arm quilting machine and this month will do my first ever Mystery Quilt with Bonnie Hunter from www.quiltville.com It starts
November 28, 2014.  Check out her awesome blog and color combinations she picked while visiting The Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island in Michigan! This is going to be FUN!!!

I'm vowing to update this blog!  Pictures to follow!
