Grand Illusion Clue Three Done!

 My clues are starting to show all the colors from my inspiration picture!  I am loving this quilt already!
 Today before power cleaning, working out and working a short Saturday shift I sewed some on clue three.  Tonight Kathy and I watched Grease on our new (to us) TV since Coleman's huge TV died and he took the one in the sewing room he had been lending me.  It was fun to see this movie again, Kathy and I sang duet (thank goodness no one was here) and she sewed away on clue one while I finished clue three!
 I was so excited when I got to the last ten that I sewed five of them incorrectly!  UGH!  So a little unsewing went on as I laughed at myself.  I also twice sewed grey to light even though grey is only sewn to purple at the start of this and when I was on the last strip, hahah!  Clue three is done!  I have a few extras to boot (always do that).
 Kathy is done with her hst's and has all her cutting done for clue one (and I helped her out with some cutting for clue two and three) and she is happily putting her blocks together too!
Linking up with Quiltville Monday.  I have really enjoyed visiting and commenting on the other blogs each week.  I never quite make it all the way through, but I try!  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  If you are new here and you are a Bonnie fan please check out my Quiltville Parade here!  I am truly her #1 fan!  :) Hope you are too!

The main mistake I made was to sew the wrong side of my strip sets together, so that the black one was in the wrong position. Oops! Unpicking required!

I know you visit a lot of blogs, because it seems every time I visit one you have already been there and commented.

Gorgeous colors, and love your inspiration photo. Such fun to watch everyone's progress. Love the little skeleton on the one black piece of fabric.

Ooh, another color rebel! This will be fun! Don't worry about the ripping, we all end up doing a little. I'm trying to keep it to a minimum for each clue.
