Above is my part 5 units for my Grand Illusion Mystery quilt that I have been working on.

Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusion Mystery quilt ink up Quiltville
It is going to be an amazing quilt. She released the final layout and directions last night New Years Eve. I love it. I will be working on putting mine together these next few days.
I used my Pfaff quilt Expression 4.0 for my clue 3 units. I like to use a variety of machines. All my other machines are vintage and antique and all are a lot of fun to sew with. My Pfaff is nice because its in a Koala cabinet.
40 of my clue 3 broken dishes units finished above. Below are my other 40 waiting to be ironed and pairs sewn together.
My 1 year old grandson on Christmas. I baby sit him on my days off work when his parents are both working. He is my little buddy.
Hoping everyone has a wonderful New Year. Blessings and good health to all of you.

My Ford Mustang Playboy Pink Singer Featherweight is pictured above in photo. I was using her to sew double diamond units for my Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. I chain stitched them on my Featherweight. (I had Gerald Holmes custom pain her for me. He did an amazing job.)
Last Friday the second clue was released for Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery quilt. I had fun sewing this second step. Her quilts are amazing and I love her Mystery quilts. She has a free mystery quilt for her blog followers every year that starts the day after Thanksgiving. I am linking up this week with her blog. Check out all the other link ups to see their progress and check out her blog for more information on her quilts and the mystery. I am so thankful for her generosity in offering a free mystery quilt. Thanks Bonnie! Here is her link Quiltville blog Bonnie Hunter

Celtic Solstice part 6 link up They are all amazing. I like my colors I used. I substituted blacks for the greens and reds for the yellows. I have 13 more blocks to sew together and then I can finish putting my top together. I am really loving this quilt.
I made this quilt also for my new grandson.

Celtic Solstice Mystery by Bonnie Hunter Check out the link to see everyone else's progress. I used the Easy Angle Ruler that Bonnie recommended and it was great. My units measured 3 1/2 inches when done. I love the scrappy units they make me happy! I love scrappy quilts and Bonnie's are amazing.
