Here it is! My Modern Mini was inspired by an optical illusion Husband saw in one of his online science jounrals. He has often thought that some of these might be quilt-worthy. This one was! It measures 24" by 24" and has 72 little 1 1/4" paper pieced and appliqued squares on fine blue cotton from Britex in San Francisco. The whole idea is that the rings of squares will look as if they spiral. It was so difficult to figure out the angles to place the squares at but if you look at it at the right angle, you see the optical illusion!
I stippled it really, really closely with fabulous Aurifil 50 wt in Bluet., #5007. I like how the squares have become almost three dimensional because of the quilting all around them.
This is my first mini quilt other than doll quilts and the first time I have made a quilt to hang on a wall.
