3-d Ideas

I've been looking at a lot of 3-d ideas since I started my Optical Illusions mystery quilt, so I'll give you a few links to look at to get some ideas.

Attic windows is a 3-d pattern:

Here is a tumbling block tutorial:

Another idea is on this site.  Look at the 5th quilt down, entitled "3D Squares" by Moran Arft and Quilts:

Or how about this "tesselated" pattern.  It's the 4th picture down in pink and green

Here is another tumbling block (a little more complicated than the first one)

I hope this will give you some ideas and help you get started.  Good luck and have fun!

Thanks so much Marie! I know exactly what to do now! Oh, and thanks for the call too, we're sad that you're moving though. But I am moving up there too in August, so we won't be too far, funnilly enough. Hehe, we can still oggle at eachother's quilting!
