I toyed with the idea of doing Bonnie Hunters quilt Grand Illusion. My one rule was I must use my stash only. I would not purchase fabric for this quilt. To do so this required my searching my stash. I didn't think I would find enough of each but yes I did. This is a sampling. Bonnie Hunter, Hunters, Illusions, Searching, Mystery, Posts, Quilts, Facebook, Fabric

 Not enough greens so I am forced to use some far more than others. Curious to know how this will fit in. Far More, Enough Is Enough, Pot Holders, Illusions, Mystery, Quilts, Fit, Comforters, Hot Pads

Clue three. Not enough greens so I am forced to use some far more than others. Curious to know how this will fit in.

Clue two. I used the template and taped it to the back of the easy angle ruler. Cutting was easy. Piecing the individual sections went well. I was apprehensive about joining the sections but all went amazingly well. I took my time and wow! Nice matches. This took me longer than a week but I learned a few things: I am enjoying the process, I am not stressed, I am having fun, I love the EA ruler ( I can sit and cut), I am rather liking this. Go figure. Take My Time, Ruler, Illusion, Have Fun, Mystery, Template, Quilts, My Love, Nice

Clue one. I am amazed at how quickly some completed this clue. This took me a week given other things in my life. I did square up the blocks. I am pleased with the results. My goals are to enjoy the process, be accurate and no stress. I Am Amazing, My Goals, Illusion, Messenger Bag, Mystery, Satchel, Stress, Quilts, Life
