As this posts, I am enjoying an extended weekend with members of my local quilt guild. For me this means some time actually piecing a quilt or two and catching up with some dear friends. It is always inspiring to see what everyone is working on and hear about their latest fabric and tool finds.
I also get super inspired when members of Tech Know Quilters share what they are working on as well. I consider them my "online guild". They provide me inspiration each and every day. I will be sharing a few of their virtual projects in this post.
Scroll down for an EQ8 tutorial on designing an optical illusion quilt -- complete with added quilting.

Optical Illusion with Quilting EQ8 Tutorial
I designed this project for one of my Optical Illusion classes in Tech Know Quilters -- but didn't have enough room to include it in the class. As you saw in the show a number of Tech Know Quilter members just finished their projects from an Optical Illusions class. So I thought it would be fun to share this tutorial with you.
Here is the quilt from the tutorial.
I look forward to seeing what you decided to do with this block. Please feel free to post pictures in the Learning EQ Facebook group.
In Tech Know Quilters there are two different Optical Illusions classes. Here are some of the projects from each of the classes.
If you are currently in Tech Know Quilters and would like to take either of these classes as an add-on class, just send us a note. We would be happy to get you a discount coupon for your class.
