Optical Illusion...

Yesterday and again today we have had lovely blue skies and sunshine, and temperatures around 10*C.
April 1st tomorrow, of course, showers are forecast, but that is just fine with me, they will melt the snow which is still laying around in some areas and help thaw out the ground.   The streets will get a much needed wash to remove all the gravel and salt used to melt the Winter ice and snow.   The bulbs just showing out of the ground will get a drink.

In early March I attended two classes conducted by one of the members in the guild I belong to.  We made an "Optical Illusion" wall hanging.   Mine is smaller than the original pattern and I wanted it to hang "on point" which proved to require some additional thinking to make it hang properly.

I'm impressed! I don't know how you got all the blocks to end up in the right place to give the illusion, but it's amazing!

Hi Patricia, greetings from Northern Ontario. We have similar history. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Your quilt is amazing, I love your choice of blue, and the on point hanging, what a gal! Kudos for rising to the challenge.

Patricia, I appreciate your comment on my blog, but for some reason my response to you has been returned as a failed delivery the last couple times. Could you email me with a new address, or let me know if you are receiving my responses? Many hugs to you, Pokey
