Illusion Quilt
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hi Guys,

I saw a picture of a quilt similar to this on the internet but it wasn't quite what I wanted so I created exactly what I wanted in EQ8 and stitched it up. I am quite happy with the way it has turned out. Quilted on my Q'nique 15.

Neat quilt and design!

This is an astonishing quilt to me. I've never really found a place in my heart for quilts that use only solids (or read-like-solids) because I always thought they would become boring after a while (a little judgemental, I know). What you have managed to create, however, is a work of art that capitalizes on the strength of solids. So innovative and so beautifully pieced and quilted - I know I would never tire of this! Once again, my eyes have been opened by this forum. Thanks so much for sharing. :-)

dunster 09-02-2021 12:43 PM

Gorgeous quilt, and I am amazed by all those perfect points! (Isn't EQ8 great?)

Super quilt - and the reverse is interesting too!

Beautiful quilt! Nice to have a program you can work with. I don’t understand enough about computers so I have to work it out in my head-lol-Love the quilting!!!

What an appealing quilt! Your color choices are a nice balance and well, the quilting is perfect but it is one of my favorites so I am a bit partial. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/wink.png

Great quilt, you should be happy with that!

Very striking! And in my favorite color!

A very bright and pretty quilt!

You did a marvelous job creating this! Perfect use of color!

Caroline, your quilt is beautiful. Great job. I bought EQ (some number) several years ago but have never used it. Been retired for 7 yrs. now and I guess it is past time to look into it. I learn better in class rather than on my own. I
l have to talk to the guild members to see if anyone is interested in teaching/learning the program. The guild is very small but someone in it must know how to use it.

That looks great, did you use a pantograph for your quilting?

rryder 09-04-2021 04:38 AM

Great job designing And putting this one together! The quilting adds a nice contrast to the angular pattern in the top-well done.

I love the pattern! Will you share?

I love this quilt and how the diamonds interlock. A very intreguing design and perfect quilting.

Awwww Susie,

That is such a lovely thing to say. I have missed posting too. Lockdown put me in a real stitching funk... but hopefully I am out of it now and back at the machine!!!!

Hugs

Gemm,

This is one of the nicest things anybody has said about a quilt of mine. I am so happy that it has made you look at solids /solid like fabrics in a new way. The fabric I used was Linen Texture in dark blue, a lighter blue and a very pale grey! Thank you for your lovely words.

Hugs

Caroline

Striking! You did a great quilting job.

Grandma’sgirl 09-12-2021 08:38 AM

I am impressed! What an amazing use of solid fabrics. Love the colors. The back is also so interesting. Congratulations!

NZquilter 09-12-2021 06:24 PM

That is very impressive! It definitely gives the illusion of 3-D.

cfuzzy 09-12-2021 08:48 PM

Great quilt! Love your color choices and quilting too.

AngelaS 09-20-2021 07:51 AM

That's fun! I love it! (I think I have something similar pinned on pinterest!)

fatsewcat 09-21-2021 06:37 AM

I love this quilt.

quilt1950 09-23-2021 07:27 PM

I'm working on this quilt! I hope mine turns out as nice as yours.

May I ask how you pressed your seams? I'm struggling with trying to minimize bulky seams.

MicheleC 09-26-2021 10:50 AM

Beautifully made!

b.zang 09-26-2021 11:57 AM

Illusion quilts have been on my want-to list for a long time now. I'm impressed that you drew it up in EQ, too. Great quilt!

Ukinusa 10-07-2021 07:16 AM

That is amazing, love the colors that you chose.

Fabric Galore 10-07-2021 11:57 AM

You really are creative and you quilt is beautiful. I have EQ7 but I haven't designed a quilt yet. I use it mainly to figure up the yardage for blocks I put together.

lizzie3 10-07-2021 02:55 PM

Love your design, it looks so complicated
