My Grand Illusion Mystery QAL Block 1

Unlike me, most of you are on top of what's going on in blogland, so I'm pretty sure you know that Bonnie Hunter began her new mystery qal this past Friday.  I think you will enjoy reading the opening post which describes how Bonnie arrived at the colors she chose.  I was sorry I missed last year's beautiful Celtic quilt, so I'm in on this year's.  We can link up tomorrow so this post is my link up post.  Edit:  This is the link:

I'm using the same colors, and although my constant yellow is a pale fabric I had enough of it so it's in.  

Some of the bloggers configured this simple block into many different designs, so block one is very versatile and it'll be fun to see what Bonnie makes of it.

I'm testing border fabric for my Quilt Doodle Doodle 2014 quilt.  For some reason I'm having a hard time finding the right border fabric.  Just being finicky, I guess. 

God Bless, and I hope we all have a wonderful week.

Ben Franklin Mystery Quilt Gentleman's Fancy

Gentleman's Fancy  is Block 25 in this Eric Homemade ezine qal.  I'm not going to worry until we're up to block 50:-)  Here's my stack of block:
This is going to be a most beautiful quilt with all of its many different traditional blocks.  

I've also been working on an American Girl Doll dress for my grandniece who made her First Communion in May.  I couldn't find lace to match that on her dress; it is very unique.  So the style matches, with the two purple flowers at the waist that she added.

I need more fabric flowers for her headpiece, but it's essentially finished.  Only 7 months late.

God Bless You and have a wonderful weekend.
