I saw one of these done in blues and thought "ho hum". So, I used a cherry swirl fabric and am having trouble focussing on the front of it for any length of time. I think my eyes are on cherry overload. The borders are next, then there are star apliques to complete it. I am at a stage now where I have to figure out how to cut a 49 1/2 inch square out of this before I can put the borders on. My problem was that all I can see are the twisty red parts. I'm thnking tissue paper....
I changed the pattern and cut out some freehand hearts instead of the stars that the pattern used. Now I think it should be called "Love is the ultimate optical illusion."
Too dreary a day to take it outside for pictures. All quilted and bound and ready to go 2/27/2014.
