Techniques & Tips. Supplies. Borders and binding and backs. Labels & sleeves. Stitches. Block patterns. Art With a Needle. Selvage Blog: "That's My Q" by Kathleen Loomis. Modern Applique Illusions: Perspective. Welcome back to this next-to-final post on the Modern Appliqué Illusions blog tour. I’ve had such a great time sharing more details about each quilt in the book with you over the past two weeks, and I’m so grateful for your following along! Today, I’ll be talking about the final quilt in the book–Perspective.

Before you read my post, though, hop over to my friend Cindy Lammon’s blog, Hyacinth Quilt Designs, to see the mini project she made from this pattern and hear her thoughts about the book! Perspective is a fitting project to close out a book about using perspective and depth in quilts, since it’s message to viewers is to “Keep Things in Perspective.” The twist to this quilt is that the appliqués are the shadows of the letters, and the letters themselves are created from the negative space between those appliqués.

This quilt is essentially just solids, as I wasn’t left with much backing fabric. Like this: Like Loading... Quilting.
