Happy 2015! It’s Here!
The Reveal to Grand Illusion Mystery happened at Midnight, EST LAST NIGHT!
Are you excited about it? I know I am.
I’m as nervous as can be hoping you will like it, going over everything just ONE MORE TIME before the ball drops, hoping I didn’t screw up somewhere along the line.
The block was originally named Big Bang, a block I did for a previous issue of 100 blocks by 100 designers for Quiltmaker Magazine. I loved doing this block and knew I wanted to play with it, and putting it in the mystery was the perfect way to break it down!
I think it was the sashings that threw everyone off…and I love that! I try to keep things scrambled enough that although some will come close, not everyone will figure it out before the reveal.
And it wasn’t easy with a mystery that was deemed to be “Easier than the others we’ve done”.
I hope we succeeded!
I want to thank Forest Jane for once again doing our graphics. Feel free to save them to your computer and use them on your blogs and social media.
Did you know we have a ZAZZLE store for Quiltville items? Click HERE! Forest Jane uses all proceeds from this small store to purchase batting and backing for charity quilts, so your purchases go to a great cause. We may all have scraps for donation quilt tops, but we also know that backings and battings can be the bigger part of the expense when making many quilts to donate.
Forest Jane, I must say is a trooper. She sent me the graphics the night before having surgery. She will probably add the Grand Illusion items to the zazzle store as she is recovering, so give her a chance and check back. If she lets me know when she has them added, I will include that info in a future post!
I’m off to teach a Bow-Dacious class at Fabric Fanatics in Plano!
Love you guys ---
