Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Mental Floss

I LOVE getting emails from readers and the other day I received one from Judy. She said…..

“Since you enjoy finding quilting inspiration from your surroundings, I thought of you immediately when I saw this from Mental Floss on Facebook.  It would make a really trippy quilt!”

The photo that she referred me to was this one…..

It is one of those designs were it looks like the horizontal lines are not parallel, but they are!!

Judy said that it would be fun to make a quilt like this and I totally agree. I wonder if it would be possible to reproduce the optical illusion.

What do you think?

The article with the photo is interesting and talks about why the mind perceives these horizontal lines to be crooked. If you are interested, it is a quick read!!

Thanks, Judy for sharing this with me.
