Impossible Triangle

by Eleanor Marsden

I have always been fascinated by the work of M.C. Escher, and have a collection of images of impossible figures from Pinterest. The impossible triangle underpins many of these diagrams. I worked from the image putting the pieces onto the background using bondaweb and edged them with fusible bias binding. The fabrics are cotton and the individual pieces are quilted in the ditch with invisible thread.
