Grand Illusion #2 – Finished!

Finally a break in cold and rain! And found the camera AND remembered to take pictures of quilts. Baby steps!

Anywho, here’s the finished second Grand Illusion quilt; this one sets the blocks without  Bonnie’s sashing, and then uses the checkerboard sashing as 1st border.  There’s a 1″ border of black, then Bonnie’s outer pieced border, and finally “regular” border of a single fabric.

I’m almost done with all the pieces from this monster mystery – there’s one more quilt to finish with some of the elements. And three placemats. It’s the mystery that won’t end!

  1. Very pretty quilt. You are much more industrious and productive regarding the GI quilt blocks. I made just a 3×4 GI quilt and found I had to add a little bit of fabric (green) to make the borders fit. No more GI quilts for me! I hope I can put these extra blocks into other quilts so they are not lost.

  2. If someone had asked me if a striped border would be good with this quilt, I would have answered with a horrified, “No way!” I would have been wrong. It looks awesome!
