Optical Illusion Triangles
This will be a fairly simple block to draw in Electric Quilt 8 using EasyDraw. I used a variable point layout as it allows me to have a different Width and Height. I then decided to try the block in a second layout.
Here are my quilts from the video.
My challenge to you this week, is to redraft the block and create a quilt using the block. If you would like to share, feel free to post a picture on the Learning EQ Facebook group.
TKQ Masters Victor Vasarely Inspirations
While creating a new Tech Know Quilter class on drawing Optical Illusion quilts, I discovered Victor Vasarely.
Tech Know Quilters is a paid membership program for those serious about mastery of Electric Quilt 8. You can learn more here and sign up for the wait list for the next open enrollment period.
Victor Vasarely was a French-Hungarian artist credited as the grandfather and leader of the Op Art movement. Utilizing geometric shapes and colorful graphics, the artist created compelling illusions of spatial depth. Vasarely’s method of painting borrowed from a range of influences. Many of his designs struck me as being quilt friendly.
As part of the class, we created three different "Vasarely" inspired quilts. I also challenged the Tech Know Quilter masters group, to create their own design inspired by Vasarely. Here is what they shared with me.
