    About 18 months ago I took a class from Karen Combs, she was at our guild. I've had the top done since then, finished the quilting this week. Did SID around the diamonds and FMQ for the rest. My thread matches really well, so you can't see the FMQ.

    Does she have a website I saw a quilt made this way and have had my eyes peeled looking for the pattern or block instructions. I love the effect beautiful colours.

    Here's her website. If you ever have an opportunity to take any of her classes, she is an excellent teacher.

    Color, value, and texture are what give the blocks the illusion.
