Marie's Optical Illusion Rule #15

Block 15 is finished!!  My top is complete.  Now I have to add the borders and the piecing will be finished.  Rule 15 was that there could be no pink in the block.  That was easy enough, especially with my colors.  The Technique was to choose any technique we wanted.  So, I chose to do some paper piecing, which I love, and since I have never done a log cabin, and I'm going to be make lots of them shortly, I decided to do that and check my 1/4" seam accuracy.  I was off a little.  It didn't matter on this block, but I know I'm going to have to work on that.

The left part of the block is call "Bent Stars" and I got the pattern off one of my favorite quilting sites called "Paper Panache".   (  The top right block is call "knight's Knot" and I found it on Piece By Number.

Here is the final row of my quilt, which I added to the top of the quilt.

It's quite an interesting quilt.  I have enjoyed this little mystery quilt journey and have learned a lot in the process.

Oh Marie! It it gorgeous! I bet it feels SO GOOD to have this wonderful creation so close to completion!

I LOVE the bent stars in the new section. They are so unique to anything I have seen before. I also like how your log cabin appears to sink in the middle. Really though, I just can't take my eyes off of those bent stars. Lovely project! I am excited to begin a new one with you!

P.S. sorry for being so slow to discover your post. I have been so busy getting the design ready to launch.
