Mystery Quilt and Carla's Trees

And other stuff too!

First things first. An issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks is on it's way to Cherie and Virginia. I hope you enjoy them ladies!

My Clue 1 of Bonnie Hunters Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt is finished and I have started on Clue 2. This block was made using the Easy Angle ruler and 2.5" strips. I may try one of the other methods just to see.

Saturday at Quilts For Kids we had a gift card tree for Cathy and Barbara, the coordinaters of the Indiana Chapter. Lots of quilters brought in gift cards to hang on thier tree and the trees were presented after we enjoyed the wonderful lunch that Pat made for us.

These little paper pieced Christmas tress were made by Carla. I quilted them all the same and am happy with the results. You know that I don't do much custom quilting, but once in a while it's ok.

Here's the back of one of them.

 Have a great week!

You may not do much custom quilting but what you do it terrific. The trees look wonderful and I love the stars in the background :) Oh, yay, I won....thank you so very much :)

Great quilting! Christmas trees look so good with custom quilting :-)

I love the fabrics you chose for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery. I am doing it too but I am using stuff from my stash so it is not as bright as yours.
