Default 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.
