    TGIQ - The Great Illusion Quilt

    I shared the beginning of this quilt last June. (http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t191587.html) It is finally finished and just in the nick of time. I will drop it into the mail tomorrow to wing it's way from California to Virginia. It'll arrive just in time for my grandson's birthday.

    This quilt has caused more than a few headaches and I am quite tired of working on it. I am pleased with the final quilt but do not look very close! Oh, yes! Points? What points!!! LOL

    It turned out really nice. It will be a big hit at the birthday party. I'm sure it will be loved for a long time.

    That is fantastic! Was it a pattern, or did you design it yourself? He will love it!

    That is amazing. Your colors choices are great. It does look like a lot of work keeping everything going together right.
