The big reveal!!!
True to form, Bonnie released the big reveal of the Grand Illusions quilt New Year's Day. (Linking here.)
Bonnie, fantastic, fantastic mystery! So much movement in just these 4 blocks. I'll be linking up here and looking forward to all the other quilt reveals. Some people manage to assemble the entire quilt top - but I'm quite happy with my 4 blocks. It give me a great view of the finished product. (Note, there is an extra row of sashing between each of the blocks - probably should have overlapped them in the photo!)
I had trouble capturing the true block color outdoors - the single block below is a truer representation.
These are a big and beautiful 12" blocks with a 3" sashing. Still trying to decide on how big of a final size quilt I will go for but it is clear that I'll need to make more of each the clue blocks.
After assembling my 4 blocks, this is what I have left: 12 of clue 1 (enough for 3 blocks), 8 of clue 2 (enough for 2 blocks), zero of clue 3, 9 pairs for the outer border, zero of the center 4 patch blocks and 2 of the quilt corner blocks.
Creating these blocks will be my goal for January's Another Lovely Year of Finishes .
