Squares, Squares, Squares

Double Four Patches to be exact!  

Yes, I am excited.  This is for Clue# 3 of Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion.  I get to pull out the Kiwi Green batik and see how it plays with the black & the cream when it’s cut into small squares.  I auditioned a ton of greens – you’d be surprised at how many nuances of bright, lime-ish green I found at Lolly’s before deciding that this one would be best.  

We had a lot planned for this weekend (more on those activities in another post), so I wasn't sure how far I would get by link up time.  I wold have gotten farther if I hadn't sewn these wrong!  Fortunately I caught the mistake after only one set and did some un-sewing and then some re-sewing.

Not a huge pile yet but it's a start!

Click for the Grand Illusion mystery link up party for Dec 15th and see quilter’s progress and excitement as we work on the Clue # 3.


  1. Way to go! Looking great! I am jealous you get to go to Lolly's!

  2. Really pretty combo you have there!

  3. Not sure what Lolly's is but it sounds like a place we would all like to go. Love that lime green, great choice.

  4. Beautiful green batik! It must look wonderful with your other units.

  5. It looks great, you have non-scrappy version!
