Design Wall Monday - Grand Illusion Progress

It was a cold and wet weekend here.  Cold enough that we didn't go out unless we really had to.  Drama Teen celebrated her sixteenth birthday last week, she spent the weekend enjoying her birthday presents.   She's been telling all her friends that she got a car for her birthday.  When they ask for a picture, this is what she sent.   







 A shot of the Lego Mini Cooper that was one of her birthday gifts  Putting it together kept her busy most of Friday evening.

I did spend some time in the sewing room this weekend, not all of it at the machine though.  Some time was spent reorganizing the fabric closet.  The stitching that did get done is up on the design wall.  










One row of sashing and 2 more Grand Illusion blocks were added to the two blocks that were up last week. I like it better than I did last week.  I was worried that the teal was too drab next to the bright green, but it seems to work OK. 

There are a couple of other projects up on the design wall, but I forgot to get pictures of them, so I'll just have to save those for later.  

Check out all the design walls posted over at Patchwork Times.

  6. Your GI is wonderful. And good for you to be making steady progress. It will get it done in a reasonable amount of time.

  10. Legos have come a long way since my kids were young. That's impressive. I'm glad you are beginning to like your quilt too; I think it's great.
