Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt - clue #1

I admit to being a huge slacker when it comes to blogging. I'm much more active on Instagram, so if you want to really see what I'm up to, find me over there - my username is thecolorfulom.

I decided to make the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt this winter. I love scrappy quilts, and I follow Bonnie on pretty much every social media site there is, so it was meant to be. We started last Friday, which was not only Black Friday, but also my birthday! Clue number one had us making loads of broken dishes blocks in yellow, black, blue, and pink. Here are mine. I can't wait to see what comes next and how these blocks fit into the quilt!

Not pictured are the extra 80 half square triangle units that we made in the same blue/pink combination, which are to be saved for a later clue.

Hop on over to Bonnie's blog if you want to join in on the mystery. Here's the link to the mystery quilt main page, which will have links to each week's clue:
