Grand Illusion - Part 4

Well, I had a sore back today. After sleeping crooked, carrying heavy groceries around, tossing trash into a dumpster, and feeling the effects from sitting on the floor to wrap some things the last couple days, my back had enough! But that didn't keep me from diving into clue 4 of the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt!

Bonnie was right to say that this week's clue was a bit less intense. We already had practice making this block in Part 1 of this project. 

I love these colors! Sunny yellow, glassy turquoise, hot pink, creamy white, and midnight black!

Pressing back, center seams open will help make the top lay flatter when it's quilting time.

I'm making a half sized quilt top so I did 20 of each block. 

Into the mystery box they go; all ready for action! Now, I'm going to take some aspirin and lay down!

How are you doing with your progress? Link up at Quiltville and share your quilt blocks with the world! But you have to do it while the link up is available so get that sewing machine going!

Back problems seem to be making the rounds with mystery quilters this week. Hope you're feeling better. Great progress. I still have some of clue two to finish. It will get done when the units are needed.
