These chevron units were my nemesis on the Celtic Solstice Mystery. I despised each and every one I made. So when I woke up Friday morning and looked at the new clue for Grand Illusion, I rolled over and went back to sleep! I ended up making the units for Celtic Solstice with the Folded Corner Clipper ruler and it worked fairly well.
I finally got up, made some coffee and headed to my sewing room and re-read all of Bonnie's directions. Instead of using the ruler this time I decided to go ahead and do Bonnie's method #3 and make those bonus triangles ... because well .... I'm crazy that way. Why crazy? I HATE, HATE, HATE drawing lines on fabric .... and by choosing to do this method, I set myself up to draw TWO lines on each square ... not just one. WHAT WAS I THINKING???

Success! Apparently all that practice in Celtic Solstice paid off because my points matched up fairly well.
As of last night, I was only a little over half way done. I'm also working on two quilts that are going to be Christmas presents so I'm on a tight schedule. Anyway, here's where I am with all of my bonus triangles:
I should finish up with these before Friday pretty easily. I'm linking up with Bonnie's blog HERE. Hop on over and see how everyone else is doing!
