Design Wall - Grand Illusion & Women of the Bible

Here's what my design wall looks like after this weekend...

Women Of The Bible:  Blocks 1-16
Hoppin' Bobbin's block of the week is still going strong.  There are something like 40 weeks (1 block/week that will make up into a king size quilt) and we're just starting on block #17 this week.
Block #16 - Deborah
This cute log cabin variation (courthouse steps) was last week's block to represent Deborah.  I am really loving how quick and easy all of the blocks of this series are and I'm also really enjoying working with the color palette I've chosen.  I sure hope it goes together well in the end!

And...have you been working on Bonnie Hunter's new mystery, Grand Illusion?  If not, you can get there by clicking on the link in the righthand sidebar for more info!
Grand Illusion - Color Palette
I always love the color palette that Bonnie chooses, so I decided to stick close to it again for this year's mystery.  These are the small pieces (1/2 yard or smaller) that I gathered for the project and I have a few baggies full of scraps in the same colors to pick from as well...I've used a good majority of the scraps already in the HSTs in clue #1!
Grand Illusion - Clue #1
I'm now all finished with clue #1...I always love seeing everyone's EARLY guesses!  Here are a couple of layouts with just the broken dishes blocks, but haha, it's only clue #1!!!

Linking up to BOMs Away, Quiltville, Design Wall Monday, & Scraptastic Tuesday!



  1. You're jammin' :D I'm so happy to be doing the Bonnie Hunter mystery this year. Kinda crazy to add it in with everything I already have, but I'm glad I pulled stuff to do it!

  2. Thank you, you inspire me to start this mystery right now.

  3. Clue one is looking good!

  4. Way to go! Everything looks great! I got rid of some smaller scraps with the HST's too!

  5. I love it. I'm almost done with my clue#1. Thx for sharing your pictures. They look great.

  6. Love your blocks. I'm doing the Grand Illusion QAL, too, but opted out of the Bible BOM due to lack of time.


I love to read your comments and I'll try my best to answer any questions. Please, just let me know you've dropped by!
