Optical illusion quilt

Work started with this quite large quilt. I loaded it and did all the stitch in the ditch, ate some lunch, and then began quilting. I really didn't think it was a very nice quilt until I went to photograph it...Holy Cow!!! Through the camera lens, the quilt looks completely 3-D! When I am quilting, it is just a pattern of triangles and rectangles. Soooo weird! Anyhoo, here it is. You decide. I wish you could see it without the camera...
This looks completely different in person! I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone!
Don't you feel like you could reach into that square box?
At 5:00, I decided to work a bit on the applique project, which I believe will never be finished. Unfortunately,the squirrels have many little pieces. Drat! They will be so hard to button hole stitch around. The birds are cute.

I had to quit at 7 to make some supper for the other quilter. He was also busy today quilting one quilt and loading another.
Mr W did this one

His next quilt is ready to go
After supper, I finished hand sewing the binding on the third (and last) memory quilt! Yippee!! Now, it's off to bed, so I can sleep fast and start quilting again tomorrow!

C'mon, Mom, let's go to bed!!
