So here is my version of Grand Illusion.
There was quite a lot of pieces to sew and cut and although I did cut all the pieces and made up most of the blocks in the end I did not want to have such a large quilt.
This quilt is going to be a gift for a work colleague who turns 60 in a few months time.
He's a mathematician, so I think he'll appreciate the intricate patterns and shapes of the blocks.
The quilting is very open and basic because too much quilting would probably clash with the busyness of the many pieces.
I have a couple of other quilts on the go, mainly scrap quilts and a couple of other tops ready to be loaded on the Handiquilter. Now I just have to 'squeeze' more time to get all this done !
