Square Dance

I’ve wanted to make a stacked illusion quilt for some time. However, after two attempts at a different pattern involving stripes, I was on the verge of abandoning the idea, when I found this way of making my quarter log cabins. I had teal and low volume fabric strips already cut from a previous project, so voila.. Square Dance was born ...hopefully, fooling the eye!
