I am so happy I chose to do Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt, http://quiltville.blogspot.com/p/grand-illusion-mystery.html. I have learned an absolute ton and I am tickled by the final results. Because I chose to not use my green sashing in the original quilt and instead make a separate lap quilt I think they both reflect more of who I am.
That little cutie in the right hand corner was my assistant in hanging this quilt.
I did an all over meander on my Handi Quilter table top frame. I also really wanted to do something different on the binding so I sewed it on the front by machine and then flipped to the back and embroidered all the way around.
Finally my bonus quilt, finished! I gave this one to my oldest niece as a moving out present. I am so proud of her!
