More Grand Illusion Progress

I have all my blocks done.  I went with a 3x4 setting.  I was auditioning everything together so just took a closer (blurry) picture of a smaller section.  I am glad that I chose the bright white for the stars.  The Grand Illusion quilts I've seen so far with the bright white have been my favorites.

I have all the sashing pieces complete and I have my borders all pieced with the exception of the cornerstone 4- patch being sewn on.  They are made though.  Because I made a smaller version I had to figure out how many of  each unit I needed.  There are extras!  Boy are there extras.

Here they are.  A few border pieces.  The one corner piece of the main block.  A few star points and I think 14 extra sashing units.  Well, components of those units.  If you would like any ir all of these extras just leave me a comment.  If there is a lot of interest I will do a random draw.  My goal is to get this top together by Friday the 17th.  When I get back from my sewing group I will notify the recipient then.  Good luck!

They look great. I have 2 of Bonnie's quilts I still need to finish.

that quilt just has so much in it I'm glad I didn't attempt it - I have too many other things going and would have gotten frustrated with it.

I gave up. But I saw a setting that separated the blocks which made them look so much calmer.

I might resurect it for that.

I started it but pooped out. I could use those units if no one else want's them.
