    There's always the Spoonflower option.

    My first thought is to look for circular fabric (or design yourself) and then do a bargello?

How much do I want him to love my quilting? Hmmmm.

    Maybe you do need to buy him a sewing machine of his own----------------and leave no forwarding address. Tee hee.

    The spoonflower option (getting fabric made in the pattern) seems like an interesting idea. Then quilt around each oval..still a lot of work, but not quite as crazy-making as doing it as an applique.

    I love the movement illusion. That is way cool!

    blow it up to the size you want- divide it into blocks- then work on it a block at a time- either with applique or fabric dyeing/painting techniques...if you break it down into sections it will not be quite as (overwhelming) crazy- looking at it a section at a time diminishes the illusionary properties that mess with your eyes/mind- so that you can work on it...it is FABULOUS!

    Know any engineers? My brother would get a real kick out of designing something like this. But then guess who he would want to quilt it?

    "Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them."
