What drew you to quilting in the first place? Was it the pretty fabrics? Family tradition? The satisfaction of making something beautiful and useful from scraps? Or was it the bewitching patterns that can be created with the clever manipulation of color, value and shape? Whatever brought us to quilting, it hasn’t let go and continues to fascinate and delight with the never-ending creative possibilities. I never get tired of thinking of new quilt designs and how I could create exciting, unusual compositions using the quilting techniques I know and love. In this issue, we’ve compiled a selection of quilt patterns that may make you take a second look, to see how they were put together, or because they create depth, glow or dimension by using color, value and shape so…

quick tips for creating illusion quilts

When we talk about illusions in quilt designs, we are most often referring to a three-dimensional effect created through a clever use of shape, color or value—or most often a combination of the three. Creating a sense of dimension through a patchwork design is not a recent innovation. It’s not even an innovation of the 20th-century.

You just need to learn how to look at a pattern to see its potential for dimension. Shape The traditional Tumbling Blocks pattern is an easy one to…

Quilt Designed & Made by Kymberly Pease Finished Quilt Size 56" x 64" Planning, Marking & Cutting Unearth a gorgeous gem of a quilt by piecing strips and cutting them into triangular units.
