Still chugging away . . .

on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Grand Illusion quilt.  I have all of the blocks sewed together and am working on getting the rows sewed together. I haven't sewed a lot today. I am enjoying my last day of before heading back to work tomorrow. It is always hard to go back but easy after the first day and I am back in the swing of things.

I still have a border strip and then a pieced border to add after the rows are sewed together. But, the pieced border blocks are all complete. At least I hope they are. I discovered I was short one block when I started sewing the rows together. Luckily, I have all the pieces cut that I needed except one piece. I thought all of the extra ones were just that extra. But, apparently not. I guess I miscounted. There were a lot of individual pieces to that quilt. But so enjoyable to cut and piece.

I am sitting watching a Netflix movie, Jack Ryan, Shadow Recruit. We saw it at the movie theater, but decided to watch it again.

I guess I need to get back to this quilt.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. Hey Vivian! Somehow, and I'm not sure how, I lost track of you! Glad to have found you again. Your progress on the Bonnie Hunter mystery is great! It's been fun to watch this quilt come together all over the blogiverse (because I pieced it vicariously). I have to go back to work tomorrow, too. Have a great week! :)

  2. I can't wait to see your mystery quilt when it's all put together.

    We watched that movie (rented via Redbox), but the disc was defective. I think we ought to watch it again. ;-)

  3. Your grand illusion quilt is looking bright and cheery. I don't usually have music or videos while I sew, but I will have to look into what everyone else recommends!
