Grand Illusion - Part 5

Bonjour, tout le monde! I hope you're enjoying this festive season! The puppies had fun with the wrapping paper! Sasha was buried under it at one point!

Well, Bonnie was right to say that this week's clue was a quick one! And with my project being half sized, it was even faster. I'm linked up with her progress posts each week! Look for my purple portrait in the sea of contributors.

One of my favorite blocks to make is the 4 patch. It is a great one for practicing lining up seams and precision piecing on getting that center point perfectly sewn.

Ten inches of yellow and five inches of black and pink were all I needed to construct two "B" 4 patch blocks. Needless to say I worked on banging them out first!

The "A" blocks needed one and a half WOF strips to give me enough to make 13 blocks.

Sewing the side seams with the yellow folded towards the needle helps to keep the center point butted up together, like the way we want to see it!

Pretty good!

All of these blocks were done in less than an hour. 

The mystery box is getting pretty full! Can't wait to see what it will become at the end!

To see the posts on the other clues, check these out: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Are you doing the mystery? If so, are you keeping up? Do you have any idea what it'll look like when it's done?

If you enjoy mystery projects but want less of a challenge, consider doing my mystery, Dazzle Burst, which will be revealing part 1 on January 1st! If you are a comfortable beginner or better quilter, you can take on this one! The supply list and video are available in the Mystery Projects Tab

Love your blue fabric, it plays so nicely with the other colors. Not long now and we will be putting it all together.
