My quilt Bursts of Illusion is in the current issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting (Vol 22 No 5).
It looks as though it's a New York Beauty block, but I've redesigned it. My version of the block is called Echidna, and has no curved seams!
I really like the way the block orientation makes them look out of shape.
It even makes the perfectly straight edges of the quilt look wavy!
I made my quilt with a tone-on-tone white background, and spikes from a selection of Paula Nadelstern prints, which are colourful patterns on black backgrounds. In hindsight, I should have omitted a few of the acid citrus colours.
