    Several days ago I saw a quilt on this site I would like to find. It was a log cabin type pattern made of purples and blues called Illusion (or something like that). The site had a URL which sent me to the designers's page, but that particular pattern wasn't there.
    Can anyone remember what it was and where I can find it? I would like to purchase that pattern.

    The designer is Karen Combs. I looked at her catalog, but the pattern I am interested in is not there. I am looking for the log cabin pattern.

    Is this it? It is a free pattern from the Shade collection designed by Karen Comb for Blank Fabric.

    Yes, this is the pattern. Thank you very much. I looked at it and am having a problem figuring it out. Are some of these blocks sewed on top of the others?

    Each row is made up of 6 blocks. 4 block that are the same form the illusion of the big block. The first row of the quilt in the pattern picture is made up of 2 brown, 2 green, 2 blue. The second row is 2 brown, 1 blue, 1 green, 2 blue. That creates the illusion the first large brown block is on top of the blue block and the blue block is on top of the green block.

    Wow! That sounds more complicated than it should. I hope you can look at the pattern picture and sort of follow what I'm saying.

    Very confusing this late at night. I'll really look at it and see if I can figure it out. I will, eventually. I may have to call upon you some more after I get going.

    I found one of the patterns finally on her website at $8. Does that have more in it than what you ae describing? If so, it may be worth buying it. But if it is the same as the freebie, I might as well stick with that.

    Thanks bunches.

    BellaBoo, thanks you sharing that web site. It's amazing how "simple" things can look so stunning.

    What looks like one big block is actually 4 blocks.
    The ones that look like they are on top of each other are actually 3 blocks of one color and the 4th block is a different color or a block turned a different direction.
    Take a couple of pieces of paper and make 8 blocks 4 each of two colors. Just make them small and color them. rearrange them and you will see what I mean.

    Here's a similar one I made.
