2796 pieces make up the full size Grand Illusion top. The units from clues 1 , 2 and 5 become the blocks. Chain piecing ensured the units were in the right spot with the correct orientation. I laid out all 25 blocks before any assembly to make sure there was an even distribution of the scraps. Every surface horizontal and vertical in my sewing room was needed for this exercise.
Once the blocks were together they could fit on my wall for final placement decisions.
