    Beautiful, points look great to me. I'm afraid it would be hard on the eyes. Love the pattern would be too much for me.

    Your quilt is gorgeous. I can't even imagine putting this together. It is a work of art and your grandson has an awesome quilt to remember you. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

    I have to admit that I don't think I'd take that pattern on. It's amazing. You did an awesome job on it

    I'm giggling just a little bit! First off, your quilt is fabulous! When I read your title to this thread, I thought TGIQ meant "Thank God It's Quilted" because you finally finished it after all the trouble you had with it. Then I read your first posting about it and realized that it meant The Great Illusion Quilt!!!

    I don't know how you did it, my anxiety level started to rise just looking at the blocks that you made! Great Job!

    What a great pattern! I can't even imagine how you did this, but it's very pleasing to look at. Points? Are there points? lol
