    I made this following the pattern posted here on the board http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-102422-1.htm by marsspyder.

    I made mine half size and a bit modified - the original comes out at 63" square and mine is a 39" x 30" rectangle! This was partly due to suitable fabric shortage on my part and the fact that I halved the measurements (which still should have been square!) then some miscalculation which left me even more short of fabric so I had to rejig the pattern to this rectangular version! I don't think it does marsspyder's pattern complete justice and think I'll make the full size version one day but for now, I think it turned out OK.

    Others seem to see the 3D effect better than I can - I think because I made it so have a) looked at it too long and b) my brain 'knows' the trick! Anyway thanks for reading this far (if you did!) and thanks for looking. :-D

    EDIT - the further back you go from your screen, the more pronounced the effect! Apologies in advance for any nausea caused! :mrgreen: :lol:

    "Pinkadelic" - well what else COULD I call it? LOL

    This is amazing! When I run the curser on the computer up and down it makes the quilt come in and go out. Very pretty quilt!

    It is amazing, sure makes me motion sick. Did it bother you to work on it. I love the colors and my teenage granddaughters would think it was really cool.

    Great job K3n!! I love the patterns that play tricks on your eyes.

    This is another on my list of "to do" quilts. I have had this pattern for ages, my son wants in in red and black, but it will just have to wait for a while yet. (96 blocks done 24 to go but who is counting ) :lol:

    You could have called it the "pepto bismol" LOL. I like that its pretty cool, but it does play with the eyes. :) Nicely done.
