Grand Illusion is not a finished top. I think it's rather busy and I'm glad I didn't make it scrappy ....instead choosing to use one fabric of each color. I'll be putting the backing fabric together soon and then on to the quilting!!
Yesterday's sewing time was really productive! I took left over pieces of batting, sorted them by kinda size, and then sewed them all together into larger pieces. Hopefully, I'll be able to use these "new" large pieces when I'm quilting the 7 tops I have to do!!! A new goal for before I begin new projects. Of course, that won't happen as you see here:
I started another of these today, with pink in the center. It'll be going to my friend Sharon. She gifted most of the black and white fabrics plus some additional ones to me when she decided she wasn't going to quilt anymore. I think it only fitting she receives one of the string quilts too..???? She's a Mary Kay lady so her centers are going to be PINK!!
Back to work now, I need to give Nan a feed and hopefully get her up from her afternoon nap.
