This is how the blocks and sashing are supposed to be assembled.
I liked how they looked with a calmer sashing between them.
So I played with the setting and put some together like this.
This quilt top is 89" x 89". The GRAND MYSTERY IS: can you spot the one 4" unit that is turned the wrong way????? I decided to leave it for the puzzle factor.
It worked out perfect to make 9 blocks with sashing plus borders for the back.
I just love this backing fabric.
It looks like "Quiltville"!
These houses represent all the thousands of quilters all over the planet participating in making this Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusion Mystery quilt.
This is to celebrate both finishes.
This is my favorite martini.
It doesn't have a name except YUM.
To see other quilters' finishes go to Link Up Part 6.
This was such a fun mystery, put together with friends, comparing and sharing fabrics.
Of course I can't wait until the Friday after Thanksgiving now for the next Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt. Until then I'll have to finish some works in progress.
See end of January progress for many other quilters on their Grand Illusion quilts at Quiltville Grand Illusion Mystery Link UP.
