What are you most proud of? That all the corners points matched up, and the optical illusion is pretty cool. You can't see it up close, but once you back away, all the different size squares become curvy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you are up for the challenge. I tried this as a bargello exercise, and this was NOT my favorite. LOL Sorry. I really struggled through this one. Just work through it, and the end result will be worth it.

I love this! The narrow rows of red in there are really just the perfect touch.

Thanks, Hovergirl... my friend says she still shows this quilt off to everybody, and she loves snuggling with it, and it's been a couple of years since her wedding. I like that little pop of red myself as well. :-) :-)

You have such a great eye for creating optical illusions. Makes me wonder what you do for a living, I can see the illusion very clearly

Hello, Beemers, thanks for the compliment and for checking out my work. I actually just have a desk job, nothing interesting or artistic about my work. Quilting relaxes me, and I like thinking up designs then creating them from fabric and color, so I guess it's also my creative outlet. I do love optical illusion quilts, they are not your "grandma's quilts"... she'd probably fall out of her rocking chair! LOL LOL Again, thanks for the nice words!
