this quilt has been 3 years in the making. i made the quilt top about 3 years ago and i finally had some spare time to actually do some of my own projects.


i just did SITD along the extremely thin sections to enhance the illusion.

then i did an all over geometric quilt pattern in the dark brown triangles.

Klue, I just love this quilt. You did a very nice job with the quilting. I bet it looks even better in person, which would be difficult, seeing how great it looks in the photos.

That is a really striking piece of art you have created. I love the simplicity of it--you let the illusion speak for itself.

How big is it? And how did you finish it around the edges---I do not see binding.....?

the quilt is a 6 foot square.

i put on a 1/4 inch binding.

i wanted the points of the illusion to be as close to the quilt edge as possible and the best i could do was a 1/4.

i've never been able to do a 1/8 binding without it rolling and making the quilt edge ruffle.
