Quilting is a fine art, and this instructive, beautifully designed volume carries that art to new heights. Eye-fooler quilts play with our sight and imagination, creating wonderful illusions in shapes and colors. Though complex to look at, these quilts are surprisingly easy to make when quilters are given sound direction. Here are instructions for more than 40 dazzling designs, the patterns falling into the following major divisions:
* Perspective and 3D effects * Circles * Grids * Interlacing patterns * Counterchange * Transparency effects
Here too are general instructions for making any quilt, with details on necessary tools and equipment, suggested fabrics and colors, the use of grids and templates, methods of sew-ing, instruction on assembling pieces, and techniques for finishing. Readers will also find a helpful list of resources for materials, as well as a bibliography and a glossary. Here's a book that deserves a place in every sewing enthusiast's personal library. More than 250 color illustrations.

Eye fooler quilts play with our sight and imagination. They dance before our eyes in impossible layers of perspective and color. And yet they’re surprisingly easy to make
Master the techniques, and you’ll soon be playing with visual depth like an artist, even if you can barely draw! The apparent complexity lies purely in manipulating patterns, and our templates will show you exactly how to build the quilts, patch by patch, and block by block
Find out how to create perspective and 3D effects, and interlace layers of pattern. Build quilts that shimmer with light and apparent transparency. Interlock and encircle patches with swirls of color, using only seams of simple straightness. Watch the illusionist’s art come vividly to life under your very own needle!
