Illusion Quilt Pattern Release

It has been a while since I released a new pattern...outside the Stash Artists membership, that is, (not a member yet? Join the waitlist to be notified when the doors open again), but today I get to do just that 😊 I'm happy to say the Illusion pattern is now available in my shop!

These pictures were taken in November - we do not have snow on the ground right now!
Illusion is a modern medallion style quilt, with plenty of negative space, so each of the parts of the design can really shine. It finishes at 64" x 76", making it a good size throw quilt. 

I love how the negative space around the different elements of the center of the quilt creates the illusion of overlapping squares.

Illusion uses only three fabrics, and I love the simplicity. I also think it would be fun to make a scrappy version, though. In this mockup, I used multiple blues in place of one fabric, and multiple purples in place of the other, with a cream background. I like it!

And since I was playing around in EQ8, I decided to make a few more mockups in different 3 fabric combinations. Which do you like best? Of course, I'm rather partial to the first one, with that blue background.
