I said in yesterdays post that I was going to get clues 1 & 2 FINISHED or BUST.
Well hallelujah, I don't have to BUST ! I finished about 6:30 last evening.
Bonnie posts the clues every Friday morning. All I have to do is wait a few more hours for clue #3.
I made my double diamond units doing Bonnie's **Alternate Method** (The no triangle method).
Doing it that way, you get bonus triangles...I think I have right around 400 of those little beauties, that's what's in the bowl.
I placed an order from Superior Thread a few months ago and I ordered this by accident. When my order arrived I was really disappointed. But, I decided to keep it and try it.
What a delightful surprise ! This thread actually disappears into the fabric, which helps your seams to lay flatter. With all the seams that are in the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt, a person needs a fine thread.
Give it a try....it's wonderful !
