Interleave, Wool Applique & Grand Illusion

While blog hopping, I came across the directions to make an Interleave quilt.  It reminds me of Ricky Tim’s Convergence quilts except all the strips are the same size.

101514 (1005x1024)The wallhanging is 16 3/4″ x 17 1/4″ and will make a great doll quilt for one of my granddaughters.

I have also been working on my wool flower applique project.

The saying on the bottom border says “Believe there is good in the world”.  I am going to replace that with “Friends are flowers that never fade”.

Are you planning to do Bonnie Hunter’s Grand Illusion mystery?  I haven’t pulled any fabric yet, but I have been thinking about the colors.  The plan (subject to change) is gold replacing yellow, purple replacing green, all the neutrals are beige/tan, and burgundy replacing pink with the black and turquoise.  I also want to make the quilt smaller – more around the 70″ size.  It is going to be fun.

Enjoy your weekend,
