New Flimsy!

I finished a flimsy!! Yay me!

Grand Illusion is together! I can't believe how many stupid mistakes I made in putting this thing together tho. Just crazy stuff, like putting patches together with wrong edges matching--or not matching.

The two in the middle, I oopsed. Mr. Jack D. Ripper was very busy in the last few days.

Here is my first block:

At this point I wasn't sure I liked this. Quite busy I thought, and jaggedy. Boy was I worried. With all the time and fabric I "wasted" on this, and not like it???

Then I put together more blocks.

(The red is another quilt peeking out.)

Now here is the flimsy:

Still looks jaggedy to me, but I like it a lot more.

Thanks, Bonnie Hunter, for the Mystery Quilt.

I think it looks great! I like the angles, and I like the block pattern. So interesting how you had no idea what the quilt would look like when you chose the fabrics. They work really well!
