Product Details

About the Author

Maxine Rosenthal started quilting about fifteen years ago. She used to make clothing, but never anything as large or as time-consuming as a quilt. Maxine did many things before quilting. She had a career writing computer software, and even took a break from that to learn furniture refinishing, which she considered a walk through history. She was commissioned to make a quilt for the movie Grumpier Old Men, and still has a copy of the check from Warner Bros. But, like many, her appearance ended up on the cutting-room floor. Maxine started making kaleidoscope blocks with hexagons and octagons almost as soon as she began quilting. Maxine resides in Minnesota.

Reviews

Learn how to create interesting shadow effects with cleaver fabric placement and create optical illusions with your fabrics. Drawing from the inspirational designs of the artist M.C. Escher, the authors of this book have devised visual puzzles that engage the viewer by creating optical illusions with 'impossible' structures. Quite a complex reference but some stunning results which can be modified or rearranged to suit the project plus the bonus projects include totes, coasters and place mats for using up left-over hexagons.--Fabrications (12/10)
