|Original Grand Illusion|
After the green and white checkerboard sashings went on, I started having a hard time seeing the main blocks, and I just can't see any secondary pattern at all.
I'm wondering if I should make a few design adjustments so that I can appreciate the blocks a bit more. In the photo below I laid green fabric on top of some of the checkerboard sashing to see what it might look like. (It would go all along the edges as well.)

I might be able to incorporate the checkerboard sections in an additional border. This will be a half-size version of Grand Illusion, so there will be 12 blocks in all, set 3 x 4, and it could handle extra borders. It will have to hang on the design wall for a few days while I puzzle it out. I really want to LOVE this quilt when it's done!
Please leave me a comment. All input will be appreciated!
