    Does this make you dizzy?

    Does my new quilt top make you dizzy? I was enjoying the cheerfulness of it when my husband walked by and said it made him dizzy to look at it. And, you know, I think he is right. I am hoping to get over that feeling because I have been looking forward to making this top, with all of the different bandana colored fabrics.

    So, does it make you dizzy?

    My first look before I read your comment was "oh boy, that looks great!" It certainly does not make me dizzy. I love it!

    It is colorful and busy so maybe that's why it appears "dizzy". I like it .... so beautifu!

    I have motion sickness and I can see where it feels like it is making you dizzy. When I look at it, I feel like I'm getting sick to my stomach, a very common symptom of motion sickness. For me, there's no stop to the motion. Everything is in the same color tones with no order. It's just motion.

    A lot of people will really love it and for some of us, it will actually make us feel physically sick. If this same quilt had black sashing between the crazy blocks, making it similar to a stained glass look, it would be calmer.

    Edited to add: I, also, have problems with trying to make quilts with a lot of different colors in them. Unless I control something about them, either a sashing, or use the colors in the same rotation, they make me feel bad. I never thought about it being related to my motion sickness. Funny what we learn about ourselves, isn't it?

    No, not at all.. Just looks 'puzzlely' to me. Great job. Love the colors.

    I like it.
    To me it says 'different' and I am always drawn to different.

    I like it....but to put a pop to it and to break the "motion sickness for others maybe a solid dot, or square actually 5 placed would do it. one in middle of each corner blocks and one in middle. could be applique.

    Well, yes and no. It is very bright and busy. My eyes can't seem to find any place to rest, which could make a person feel dizzy. My DD would love this quilt. Altho I have made a couple for her and gifts, I have never cared for the magic tile block, because it seems to have no rhyme or reason, and this is magic tile without the narrow sashing between each piece and block.

    You did a very nice job on it--didn't Fons and Porter do something very similar on their last TV show? I think people won't feel as dizzy when it is laid on a bed--or when they are cozy under it.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I like the pink inner border you used. It looks like a crazy quilt to me. It does not make me dizzy.

    Again, thanks for the comments. Even though it does cause some to feel dizzy, I still feel good about it. I don't normally make quilts with a lot of colors and will probably go back to my favorite....shades of purple...

    I love all the colors! I was thinking that maybe the very slight "dizzy factor" might be all the medium sized prints. It might help in the future if you include some solid fabrics, or mini print blenders. That is what you would use for windowing, but I think if you don't do windowing putting the solids in your piecing would probably help create a resting place for the eye. PLEASE do not give up on all the wonderful colors! It looks great!!!!!

    Yes, the prints are all the same....bandana....only different colors. It seemed like a much better idea in my head.

    I love it! I think it actually just gives a bit of an "illusion" effect. Absolutely love the colors. Can you give us the name of the pattern? Please!

    It is called a puzzle quilt. It is "supposed" to be made from 9 fat quarters. As far as I know, my sister created the pattern. I learned it from a workshop she taught. I have the pattern on my computer, and if you PM me with your email address, I will send it to you.
