I've been working on a design I found in the book "Opt-Art Quilts" by Marilyn Doheny.
First I made the strata. There are actually two strata - an A and a B. They are essentially the same thing only the two colors are reversed in their order.
Once I had this done, I moved on to the next step which is counter cutting the two. This is where each strata starts to differ. One is cut to a certain size, the other a different size, which is what gives you the illusion when they are sewn together.
Next, I began piecing the two together. The smallest strips finish at just 1/4 inch so you can see how important it is to have been meticulous in cutting, pressing and sewing the first strips.
Just keep piecing the strips together according to the design.
Eventually I had the completed illusion below.
I'll keep working on finishing it out, but in the meantime I have received the fabric for one of my designs that has been booked for a magazine later this year. Once I get a publication date, I'll post more information. This is one of three I'm booked for and I'm really excited to see a few more of my designs make it out into the world!
I hope everyone has a great day!
Until our corners meet again,
