Playing Catch-Up w/Grand Illusion...w/Updates!

With our Family Christmas celebration winding down, dinners cooked and dishes mostly done ;-), got to steal away for a few hours and feed my quilting soul:

Christmas present from my youngest son and his bride...Thank YOU Brandon & Emily!

Playing catch-up on Bonnie K. Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt - just finished up Part II and almost finished w/Part V!

All Double Diamonds completed and ready for final pressing
Part V in the works:

Turquoise & yellow four patches completed
UPDATE 12/31/2014 - Finished up ALL the four patches, complete w/pressing:

Pink and aqua w/yellow/black four patches finished up!

Half-way through creating the HSTs of Part IV:

HSTs ready for their 'side dressing' pieces
And of course the 'left-overs' from Part I are now ready to come out of hiding and join the FUN:

Haven't done a thing w/Part III yet, saving it for last.  Hoping to catch-up by tomorrow morning's link-up...looks like I'd better get back to it!
