Today I am happy to share with you a 14 color verison of the Illusion quilt - the Bella and Dot Version.
Illusion is my newest quilt pattern that plays off of a checkerboard pattern with a twist! A slight change in the block sizes lets the movement of color and pattern trick your eyes.
There are multiple sizes and three versions to choose from: 2 color, 8 color and 14 color.
The 14 color version in the throw size is the first quilt I designed - and this is actually the first sample I made! This version is great for fat quarter bundles - it just takes 13 for the throw and really has a nice flow of color to it.
For the 14 color version you will need a background fabric of your choice and 13 fabrics to create your Illusion look.
This selection of solids has a rainbow feel to it without using traditional rainbow shades that can be a bit bright. Click on fabric names below to shop.

Making the Quilt:
For this quilt I finally had the chance to try a wavy stitch on my new BERNINA 770qe Plus. I used the walking foot (foot#50) and stitch #1317. I tried out several of the available wavy line stitches that come on the machine and decided this was my favorite.
