Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt Post #2

Clue # 2 was released on Friday, Bonnie gave 3 options to receive the same outcome. I tried all three techniques and even a fourth using post it notes.





Bonnie's third option is to me the most consistent and we all know that Bonnie likes to keep bonus triangles so this is obviously the technique she uses.


So, trying out the different techniques took a little more time but it's best to make up test blocks to ensure your blocks turn out the correct size and your points aren't cut off, those points are suppose to meet in the middle, point to point. I now have all of my squares marked to follow option three and will work my way through this clue over the next few evenings.


16 blocks done 84 to go....this block makes up a pretty good design all on it's own.....

Catching up on 'quiltcam' while piecing....

I'm linking this post to Bonnie's GIMQ Monday linky over on http://quiltville.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/mystery-monday-link-up-part-2.html
