Sorry for the disappearance. I went to Kansas City for my sister's wedding and to celebrate Christmas, and I just didn't have time to post anything. I'll post some pictures of my sister's wedding later, but right now I need to get a blog post together for the Bonnie Hunter link-up.
But first, I have to share some cute Christmas pictures. One of the best parts of Christmas is being able to humiliate Lance. This year, I got him a cute elf hat to wear. Can you tell how much he loves it????

And now on to the Grand Illusion quilt. I wasn't able to do any sewing while I was in Kansas City, so I've just started back on it this week. Whew, I've got a lot to do to catch up! But I'm plugging away and will, hopefully, finish it soon. I did get part 2 finished. Here are the blocks, laid out nicely on the kitchen floor:

I've also started on part 3. I'm a glutton for punishment, so when I do a scrap quilt I don't do any strip piecing. I like to have the maximum scrappiness possible, so I cut each square individually and keep mixing up the fabrics as I sew the pieces together. Well, there are a lot of pieces for these blocks! But I have all of the cutting done (if I counted right) and am making some progress on the blocks. Here's what I have so far:
I hope to have these blocks done tomorrow, but the link-up deadline is today so I'm posting my current progress.
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!
