Grand Illusion Mystery


 
Hi everyone!  Are you doing the new Bonnie Hunter Mystery?  On Friday the first clue was given!  On Monday we got together to cut.  I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted to, too busy having fun and cutting away!  
 

 
Toni made us lunch!  soooo yummy!  turkey tortilla soup.  Toni, my dear, I need the recipe.  so very good......

 
Also toni showed us the quilt she gave her daughter for her 30th birthday.  Charlene quilted it for her.  OH. MY GOODNES!!!  it is gorgeous!  Tony made a beautiful label for the back.  and she had a little tag that said:  This took forever! 


What a fun day we had.  can't wait for next Monday!
