I have been working on my Illusions Quilt, yard work, and family things, totally forgetting to keep up our blog.
I have 3 rows of the Illusions Quilt together and hopefully tonight I will be able to finish piecing. I can already see the different circles in it.
5 blocks left to piece. I enjoy paper piecing, but hate ripping the paper off. Something fun to do while watching tv at night.
This pattern is one I found in the Fons & Porter “Love of Quilting” March/April 2008 Magazine, It is called the Kaleidoscope Quilt. As I worked in a Middle School I had all kinds of Optical Illusions thru out my room. I worked as a Behavior Interventionist” and it was a great way for kids to calm down and then start conversations. I have made 3 other types of Illusion Quilts.
I think the next one I came upon in the 90’s or early 2000’s, was in red and white, looking like it moves. That will be the next one. Now I am ready to start it and put this away for a while. I need to stay focused. Anyone struggle with this? How do you handle with this? I would love to know.
