Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt Finish

I like it.  I didn't last week.  I was not 100% impressed at the reveal.  I feel like I wanted to go back and rip out the seams and put sashing in.  I felt like I wanted to rework it in some way to make it less busy.  It was driving me crazy when I looked at it.  I just wanted to settle it down.  Once I put the border on I felt much better about it.  Like a 100 percent better about it.

My daughter is wild about it.  It's going to go in her room.

Now, can you tell me why I finished this and have so many other quilts that need to be finished.  Is there a WIP/UFO Challenge somewhere?

Grand Illusion Finale

The last clue was revealed on Bonnie Hunters blog Quiltville's Quips and Snips.  I am spending the day putting it together today.  Woot woot!

So, enough computer- time to sit down at the sewing machine.
