    "Illusions"

    It's time to make my fourth grandchild's "big" quilt. Shawn asked for the "Illusions" pattern by Carol Bryer Fallert. If you've not visited her website, go look. Here is the quilt I'm making for Shawn.
    http://www.bryerpatch.com/images/qui.../Illusion2.htm
    Pretty snazzy, huh? I just hope I can make mine look half as good as hers.

    I started out making two prototypes. The green one was first. Too small! SO I increased the size of the block. Much better! I learned that prints don't really work with this pattern when I made prototype number two!
    The third picture are the first two blocks I've made so far for Shawn's "TGIQ" (The Great Illusion Quilt). I think I'm going to have to make a dozen of these. Egads! What did that grandson of mine get me into?
    Okay! Now to see if I can attach some photos. I've not posted any pics for awhile. Wish me luck!

    LOL! I thought the same thing but if you look at all the awards I'm assuming it's the value of the original quilt. Just a guess.

    As to your two blocks Yvonne I think they are spectacular! Be sure to keep us posted on your progress as you will inspire us all!

    I'm not sure why you think that prints don't work in this pattern ... I quite like #2!

    Wow! What a pattern and what a great job you have done putting some test pieces together. I love the second design. If I had made it, it would be displayed on my wall for all to see. Lots of patience and best of luck to with this quilt. It will be a stunner.
