We had our holiday party at our guild this week

Quilts were awesome but the food was sooo good.  of course I didn't get a picture of the food.  If I can talk Gwen out of her roll recipe I will share it.  Oh my goodness,  They were the best rolls ever.  On to the awesome quilts.  This was Gwen's last night as president and she made and showed us how to make the cross quilt.  It looks like fun.
 Becky showed us the cathedral windows she made from her uncles, who passed away recently, jeans.  She made the quilt for his daughter.


 Tanya finished her October pillow cover.
 And a great tree skirt.
 Sandy finished this quilt with lots of embroidery.
 She also went home after Gwen showed us the zipper quilt in Sept. and made one using the blocks we had exchanged a few years ago in guild.
 And a pillow she finished for Christmas.
 Sheri made two baby quilts, she said she started with panels but you wouldn't know it by the time she got through with them.  She is a true fabric artist.

 The colors in this quilt were perfect.  This was one of Pat's quilts.
I have a few more that I will try to get up later in the week.  Well maybe more than a few.

Grand Illusion revisited

I know we haven't even gotten the first clue on the Mystery Quilt and I have already changed my fabric choices.  My daughter brought me the paint chips the other day and I could see some glaring differences in the color choices.  I had no alternative but to go out and purchase some of the blue and greens.  The blues are kind of a green and don't show up that way on screen.  As a result I had beautiful Tiffany blue fabrics that didn't look great with the rest of the fabrics. My greens were darker and kind of dull.  I even thought about changing the color scheme but I loved the inspiration of the grand hotel so you can see...no alternative.  

remember the grand hotel...




This is on my bucket list as a place to visit someday. I bet you can see why.  


Love those colors.  So here is what I came up with.  I am going to keep them out so I can look at them for a few days but for right now I think I have my quilt fabric.  





Are any of you going to join in on the mystery?
