I followed her link http://quiltville.blogspot.com/p/grand-illusion-mystery.html, printed the clue and got started!
This week Bonnie gave us three options for making Double Diamond Units. The first and second involved templates. I have had experience in the past with templates and they are not my first option just because I don't enjoy them, though they can be very precise. When using small scraps sometimes they are the best option.
I decided to do her third option with a bit of modification. I used the Easy Angle Ruler to cut my fabric instead of cutting squares, simply because I am low on black fabric.
Here is a picture of the Easy Angle Ruler, (which comes in different sizes):
and here is a shot of how I cut my strips to save on fabric.
Here are some completed units. I have 43 done at this time, hopefully I will have time this week to finish.
And this is just fun!
