I took my inspiration for the challenge from a photograph in a book titled Light & Shade, Optical Illusions in Quilts. As there was a stated size for quilt, I needed to work out the the sizes of the pieces I would need, the fabric requirements and the colours to give the desired effect. A most enjoyable challenge.
