    Illusion
    In 1990 I first experimented with piecing overlapping transparent triangles. From 1990 to 2014 I taught hundereds of my students how to make their own Illusion quilts. To see other quilts in this style, click here. Since I have now retired from teaching and selling patterns, I am offering this as a complimentary pattern & lesson. These instructions were originally written for use with hand dyed fabrics in 8 shade gradations. I later developed a pattern for use with my Gradations Collection from Benartex. As time permits, I'll add those instructions at later date.
