Quilted Satin Cushion

This cushion was another gift I made for a friend at Christmas.
I used a piece of dusky pink satin and this time the quilting was done on my frame.

Grand Illusion Parts 3, 4, 5 and the Reveal

I failed to get my parts of Bonnie's mystery quilt posted to the linky party lately.
So here are parts 3, 4 ,5 and the reveal all in one post.

                                                  Everything measuring up nicely.

                                                                               Part 3
                                                                         Part 4

Part 5


I am doing a 3 x 4 layout which means I will have to add an extra border to make the pieced outer border fit.

This is as far as I have progressed but it will be finished and loaded onto my frame ready for quilting by the weekend.    As for how I am going to quilt it -  I'm undecided.  Fancy quilting is hardly going to show as the pattern is too busy so I am thinking of an all over design.  My extra border will give me the chance to sneak in some feathers I hope.
I will be keeping this quilt for myself as I have done with the last 3 mysteries.  Love Bonnie's quilts.
Why not head over to the linky party and see all the Grand Illusions.  There are some brilliant colour variations going on.  I've enjoyed looking at them all.
Now, back to the borders.............
See you next time.
