Clue 1 !


Yay! Its happening!
I am doing Christmas colors for the Grand Illusion Mystery. 


I did not have enough scraps in Bonnie's colors so I decided to go with this. I am using red for pink, light green for turquoise, a very dark green for her green. I'm using 2 yellows that are very similar as my yellow, this one black snowflake and my neutral is a very light grayish-whiteish batik, and possibly other bits. This will be my third time doing a Bonnie mystery, but I only have one quilt top to show for it. I completed the Celtic Solstice top a couple of weeks ago. 


Check out what everyone else is making on Quiltville blog link up.

  5. So great! I used Christmas colors for the Celtic Solstice. I finished the top, but didn't get the borders on yet, so I don't have a photo. When I finish it I will email you a copy. I don't think mine looks very "Christmasy" because of the way the colors distributed---you can let me know.
