Very cool! Nice optical illusion!
He loves eagles and he picked this out. I thought it was rather spooky at first but I have become accustomed to it. The eyes were creepy to me. I didn't have enough (bought on clearance and got all I could but because this monster kept growing not enough) so I put strips of black on either side. That toned down the eyes.
Are you just going to use your pieced top with the fleece backing or put a batting in it too?
Marge, Because the top is foundation pieced, there is an additional layer to this and there is no batting in it. It is 90 X 90 and it weighs a ton. I put the binding on last night and tomorrow is his party. He is anxious to see the finished project and I am looking forward to his response. Next pictures posted will be him with it wrapped around him
