This is my Illusion mini. I have posted about this before at various stages so don't want to bore anyone, but I am really pleased with it. I used a Simply Colour Ombre jelly roll to make diamonds, which make hexagons, which look like cubes.
I quilted the white borders to echo the shapes and then hand quited selected diamonds with matching DMC thread to make triangles (well Mitsubishi symbols really) and flowers. I make that 5 shapes from one!
You can see the quilting better in these pictures (oh, and that line on the diamond on the right - blood - I kept pricking my fingers when hand quilting!) The binding is another jelly roll strip, cut in half to make it long enough, hence it is really skinny.
Sorry for the lack of posts, we have been away in Spain for a family holiday. I didn't like to say we were going away before we went as I didn't want to advertise an empty house. Most of our week was spent by the pool which we almost always had to ourselves. The beach was close by but the kids preferred the pool and, as they are old enough and good enough swimmers to not have to watch all the time, I got 5 books read - bliss.
While I was away I missed the last week of the Lets Get Acquainted Blog Hop organised by the lovely Beth of Plum and June.
