I decided to focus on my Grand Illusion quilt while at Quilt Retreat weekend with my local Guild. While working on it I decided to make a separate quilt out of the green sashing. I didn't like how the green sashing played with the main blocks. Now I have two for the price of one!
I still can't decide what backing to use for my Grand Illusion quilt. While I figure it out I put borders on the extra quilt, sandwiched it, and put it on my Juki to FMQ.
Initially, I mapped out my plan and this is what I came up with:
I decided the Mctavishing was too much though so I stuck with pebbles, swirls, and feathers for the body of the quilt. Both the feathers and pebbles are fairly new to me so this is definitely a 'practice' quilt.
I think I will attempt the rope design on the inner border...Not sure yet though.
Thanks for looking!
