Escher Quilt is Finished!

I have been a fan of M.C. Eshcer for years,
finding his drawings and paintings fascinating. 

When I saw this pattern for a quilt that is
I had to make it.

Here is the finished quilt!

The top had been finished for a while,
but I could not decide how to quilt it
or if I should send it to my LAQ to be finished.


Finally, I decided to just quilt in the ditch for this one.
The design speaks for itself.


This quilt was not as challenging to make as I initially thought
it would be, but it was not mindless sewing,
by any means.


The fabrics had to be kept in a very specific order
so the design would come through.


Using the Kaffe fabrics gives it so much movement.


I'm not sure where this one will end up,
but it's staying with me, at least for a while.


I used this fun Kaffe stripe for the backing
and a blue and green dot for the binding. 

There will be another one of these in my future,
I believe!

Happy Quilting!

Great job! And a great choice for your fabrics. Having done similar things, I appreciate how much attention to value placement this takes.

Wow!! I've been admiring this pattern for some time now and your fabric choices make it spectacular! I've always been fascinated with Escher's drawings too.

I pinned this a while back and even looked up a source for the pattern, but never bought it. Your's is awesome, so maybe it's time to track the pattern down again.

I must live under a rock to have missed this absolutely spectacular beauty. Insert face palm emoji here.
I am adding this to the list of quilts when I grow up :-) Ramona, you should be so proud f this one. I can understand you not wanting to part with it.

Love your quilt, just bought the kit from the lovely people at quilt agious (www.quilt-agious.com) but I'm puzzled by the directions for assembly. Any suggestions?
