It’s been over a month since I’ve written about the “Grand Illusion” mystery quilt designed by Bonnie Hunter. Click here to see my late December post. Since Bonnie is having a link-up of mystery projects, I decided to spend today sewing the components of my blocks together so I could participate in the link-up. Click here to see “Grand Illusion” quilts made by other quilters. Click the “Grand Illusion” picture icon in the right sidebar to link to Bonnie’s post that contains all the clues. If you’d like to make the quilt, be sure to print the clues soon; in a few months they will be retired from Bonnie’s blog so they can be printed in a future book.
Isn’t the block design boldly striking?
Here are four blocks with the checkerboard sashing in between.
I think, because of my chosen print fabric instead of the prescribed green tonals, the design looks muddled. I think I prefer a traditional setting with light colored sashing and cornerstones. What do you think of light gray?
Perhaps I can use the checkerboard patchwork in a border.
