New Challenge: Optical Illusions

Nebo Modern Quilt Guild
2017 Challenge #1

Our first challenge for this year is "Optical Illusion."  Any quilt that plays a trick on the eyes is what we're looking for.  It might be straight seems that look curved, the appearance of a third dimension, a secondary pattern that emerges, a photo design or any other optical illusion.  Some techniques used might be straight piecing, curved piecing, grid piecing or appliqué.  
You can choose to make any type of piece....a quilt, mini quilt, pillow, pouch, table runner or a stylin' vest!  Whatever you choose to make must be 100% completed to be eligible for the prize drawing at the end.  
All items need to be completed by our June guild meeting.  
Here are a couple of sites and a pinterest board that have some good optical illusion eye candy!
