    or

    Another option is to it with a woven technique.
    Check out Anna Faustino's books Simply Stunning Woven Quilts.
    How in the world did you find this so fast? Y'all are some SMART people on this QB!
    I know. That's why post about it on here after I couldnt find out anything on my own. I knew someone would be able to help. And help they did in no time flat. The people on this board are so awesome.

    I started one in a workshop 2 years ago and never finished -- couldn't figure out what to do in the middle, plus what I thought was a reddish fabric looks brown. Any ideas?

    OK, here's the link. http://www.andiperejda.com/about.htm

    The thing is, she doesn't sell the patterns. She gives the workshops for $$$.
    Andi is in my guild, she is an absolutely fabulous quilter!

    Wow. Very cool.

    You can really see all the matching up that needs to be done. Did the pattern you were using not call for continuing the vortex into the center? Was is based on Andi's DVD?

    If you're not making an exact duplicate of THE quilt, then you can put a brown center with some fabulous applique - some sort of motif that you might like (birds, flowers, whatever).

    And so it's not bright red. I've never really understood the need to make EXACT duplicates of existing quilts. (Although, that said, look at the winner of Paducah this year)

    For me - I'm really, really fond of spirals. Sort of continues the vortex/wormhole effect (and speaks to the sci-fi geek in me ;-) ). And that motif could be continued on the border/background. And done. Wall hanging. Unless you wanted it as the center of a bed quilt.

    Beautiful but I'm afraid my eyes wouldn't hold up to the challenge.

    I remember seeing a pattern like this in an old quilt magazine. It has about six pages of directions! They don't make quilt magazines like they use to.

    Good luck making this quilt. It will be beautiful, but looks like a lot of work!

    I was in Gilbert, AZ in mid-May and went to their quilt show. Just inside the door was this quilt only in navy/white. It was the first time I saw this pattern and it was stunning! Don't think I'll make one tho. The Spicy Spiral was enough of a challenge for me!

    Yes, this one or the last one - the last page before the cover had a big picture of this quilt.

    There was a discussion about it on TreadleOn a few months ago and I ordered Andi's DVD, but I still need to order the 9 ruler for cutting the segments.

    That is a beautiful quilt! I can see why you want to make it. Years ago my ex was very interested in doing a quilt that was an optical illusion and try as he might, he couldn't figure out how to draw one. I found a book on Optical Illusion quilts and was going to surprise him by making him one but then we split up and never did. I still have the book (in one of my many boxes since I just moved) and will have to look through it again. Just might have to add it to my long to do list! LOL

    That quilt is amazing, I saw it in one of the quilting magazines I just received and thought I would like to make it, maybe.

    The accuracy and the design are amazing for that time, without all the tools we have today.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I took Andri's class. And no, the pattern did not extend to the center. I wasn't trying for bright red, rather a red that matched my sunroom decor.
