A new introduction to Square Illusions

 Who is ready for a new pattern?

Technically it's not a *new* new pattern. Square Illusions was first introduced in Issue 30 of Make Modern Magazine.

Now, though, she comes with more sizes! I'm excited to be able to offer you more choices for your Square Illusions quilt.

I discovered when making the second version that larger prints tend to make the "illusion" part of the quilt disappear. So keep that in mind when choosing.

Let's see what the testers did with Square Illusions!

Beverly's 48" quilt in purples and creams is such a soft beauty.

Janice's quilt has a patriotic feel to it and I think I need to make one like it.

Sherry's fun quilt shows that with a soft neutral bright colors shine.

Sandy's quilt perfectly shows the "square illusions" that come from this simple pattern.

This is the last quilt that Joanne tested for me. While we never met in person she gave me so much support and encouragement. I am blessed to have called her my friend. Thank you Joanne for always being there for me.

  1. Fabric choices really make a big difference in this quilt! I love the ones with a lot of contrast. Looking forward to you APQ IG takeover!
    I miss Joanne too - she was generous with her time and ideas.

  2. I love patterns that change with different fabric choices. This just might have to join my One of These Days list. Looking forward to the IG takeover this weekend!
