I think I am going to do it....Have you seen the inspiration for Bonnie Hunters new Mystery quilt?

Grand Illusion

The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island  is one place I have always wanted to visit.  Bonnie used this hotel as the inspiration  for her new mystery quilt.  The quilt is titled Grand Illusion.  I was

 intrigued already but then she shows us the pictures that inspired the fabric she is using and I was sold.  Of course you don't have to use these colors but,  I will if I can get them to play nice together.

Here are some pictures I found on the internet of the hotel.

Here are the awnings she talked about.  I think I went to gold with my fabric.  I love yellow so I think I will try to find a more clear yellow. 

Oh my  Look at that pink.  I love it!  I know the background is black but my monitor is reading navy.  That might be pretty too. 

More of the  bright yellow. 

What a beautiful room.  

I am definitely going to go there someday.  Beautiful.  I can't wait to see the Grand Illusion. 

 I have pulled some fabric but I am not loving it yet.  It need something but I'm not sure what.  I am taking suggestions.

Any way if you are interested in learning more about this Mystery Quilt you can find it directly from the designer herself Bonnie Hunter Mystery.


  1. Why is that ad in the middle of the post? Does anyone know how to get rid of it?

  2. I plan on quilting along, as well. I'm using my stash of Annie's Farm Stand by Holly Holderman. All of the colors are in it!

  4. Oh, I think I figured it out. You copied the URL of the picture above it rather than downloading it to your own computer first. The website from which you got the picture have made that picture show up when people use their bandwidth to post pictures. They pay for bandwidth and don't want people using it by linking to it from other sites. Does that make sense?
