I finally got to the American Folk Art Museum in NYC. Gorgeous old quilts, a gift shop, and a 911 memorial quilt are a must-see for any quilter visiting New York. (fyi, if you go, the museum has 2 locations several blocks apart.) But a strange thing happened to me. While gazing at quilts with Bethlehem star and lone star patterns, I felt slightly dizzy, the quilt appeared to be moving around, and my eyes began to hurt. They probably were already slightly strained from reading the plaques without reading glasses. So I just stopped looking at those quilts. But when I caught one of them out of the corner of my eye, the room would start spinning again. The only blame I can give to the quilts is that the color schemes and points were so perfect, they created a 3D effect that my eyes just couldn't handle. I've seen these patterns plenty of times here and elsewhere on the net with no such effect.
Does this happen to anyone else, or am I alone?
