Grand Illusion is done

I finished the Grand Illusion quilt! YAY!

I quilted feathers and swirls all over it, after fixing my machine and getting my tension right I wanted to do a design that I do often and that COULD cause problems, and there were NONE on the back! yay.

the binding is the dark blue fabric (that was the black in the mystery)

I did a scrappy backing, I had this blue paisley and a solid turquoise that I added as a stripe in the middle.
