3-D imagery has always fascinated me. Using three shades of the same colour to create light, medium and dark areas makes this simple-to-piece block really jump out at you.
Helen is an active member of The Quilters' Guild of the British Isles' Modern Quilt group and this year is running their Quilt Challenge, aptly named Fooling the Eye. So if you're interested in taking part or simply curious to explore 3D design, check out their web page and Helen's own Patchwork Illusions page: each one is a fantastic source of inspiration.
