Grand Illusion Fall Mystery Quilt

I bet you thought that I fell off the face of the earth, LOL! But I have been very busy since I last posted, I had a re-grand opening of my business Gecko Quilts. I have been in business for over 9 years now and it was time to upgrade my longarm set up. I computerized my longarm and upgraded to a 14ft long table!!!
Yes it is SWEET!!!! So even though I haven't posted in over a month on my Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt doesn't mean I haven't been working on it. In fact the nice thing about having my longarm computerized is that I am now able to sew my own quilt tops/ projects while I am working on quilting customer quilts! I have always said I wished there were more time in a day to get it all done and well 2015 is off to a good start because of the upgrade to my business. OK, so you're wondering just how far did I get done on the mystery....

It's all pieced!!! I like it, the colors remind me of spring and Easter. So now it will wait for another week until I can fit it into my longarm schedule (I am trying to quilt my own quilts on the weekends in between customer quilts that are being quilted during the week). I will update this post later with a quilted pic of the quilt and what design I end up choosing for it. But until then please go to Quiltville and see the progress that others have been making on their mystery quilts.   


  1. Wow! You are very talented! When did you start doing quilts?

  2. Thank You, I started Gecko Quilts in 2005 when the twins started kindergarten. I wanted to bring in an income without having to work outside the house. Starting Gecko Quilts allowed me to have a very flexible schedule which was good since the kids were still young. How did your mission go?
