Bonnie Hunter Mystery Grand Illusion Part 3

I'm behind with total pieces, but I've managed to do some of each clue.  After my disappointment with clue 2 I changed my neutral and I'm much happier.  I decided to use my focus fabric.  (The one I used to pull colors and fabrics for the entire quilt.)  It means my neutral is not really neutral - it's rather busy, but I'm excited to see how it will turn out now.  This also means I'm more excited about actually constructing the clues.

Clue 3 and my new units for Clue 2.

Compare these units with the one around the perimeter above.
Don't the new ones look more interesting?!  These looked boring!
I'll get those red dots in somewhere.
I have a lot of Christmas sewing to complete in the next 6 days.  I can't see to get into my Christmas sewing in July . . . or even October!  I'm a last minute kind of gal.

Thanks for checking in.

  1. That's a wild "neutral" you have - definitely not boring now!

    1. I'm much happier. It was hard to work on the clues when I was unhappy with my choices.

  2. Wow, love the new neutral, much better than the spots, they belong in something with pretty prints. Congratulations on taking the time to redo when it was not looking right.

    1. I actually pulled fabrics the same way last year, but with better results. I think that is why I was so disappointed and wasn't interested in finishing the clues.

  3. I can't wait to see this now. the focus fabric really does brighten the whole thing up. It's a good thing you hadn't done all the pieces to each clue. I'm a little behind as well. But tis the season. I have to focus on some Christmas projects the next few days as well.

    1. I guess neutral is up for definition! I'm anxious to see the end result. I loved the quilt last year.

  7. Wow, you have really stepped outside the box on your neutral. Those fabrics are so bright and happy. I just wish I could be that brave to try something like that. I am working on it little by little. Can't wait to see how the units all work together in your fabrics. I'm sure it will be spectacular!

    1. It will certainly be interesting. I'm not sure I'll have time to even start clue 4 this weekend. I'm way behind on Christmas sewing. I can catch up the following week.
