Grand Illusion Clue #3 required cutting strips of black, white and green. This clue used 1 1/3 yd green and Bonnie Hunter said we needed 1 1/2 yd green. So this is the only green clue.
I did all the cutting first:
Black --6 strips x width of fabric
White--18 strips x width of fabric
Green--24 strips x width of fabric
One half of the block was black+green+white+green.
The second half of the block was green+white+green+white.
Here are a bunch of the blocks on the design wall.
To celebrate this clue finish the martini is a "Dirty Turtle".
Drizzle chocolate and sprinkles in martini glass.
Add equal parts chocolate schnapps, creme liqueur, creme de menthe. Stir...
I just love finishing clues!!!
These are the first, second and third clue parts.
The first 2 clues were 4" blocks and 2" squares.
The third clue is 3" x 6".
This change of scale really bothers me.
As a designer I don't think I ever mix the size or scale of blocks in a quilt.
But I will blindly follow Bonnie Hunter in this
