Donna's pattern




My friend Donna has been playing with optical illusions in her quilts and has developed a pattern. I am honored she asked me to test the pattern, and am thrilled with my results. The tiniest square in these quilts is 1/4 inch finished. I love how they turned out, and the whole family has claimed the pillow. I made a mistake in the red quilt, that is why it is off centered. I like it that way. And I like how the paisley cut apart.
Contact Donna at donnainchicago@netscape.net for information on purchasing a copy of her pattern.
