On-Point Illusion

 The rose floral fabric is a busy focus fabric followed by a black strip followed by black/white strips on a foundation of muslin.
 This is how four blocks of b/w look sewn together and below four blocks of the rose fabric sewn together.

Because the black strip is the prominent center diagonally with the rose floral acting as the solid, the quilt appears to be on-point when all blocks are sewn together..... I loved making this quilt and finally got it bound this morning...... LOL..... it measures 68 by 86 inches!

lovely, this turns it into a HST and gives lots of possibilities. I like the variations in the b/w blocks and the black stripe.

A beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing. I could use a new way to make some strings. This is perfect for some fabrics I've been saving. Thanks again!!!

I love the red,black and white. I made my daughter and son in law and black and white but didn't even think of putting in a different color! I love to sew and would love for you and your friends to join me at www.sewcraftykathy.blogspot.com
