Beveled Blocks is Finished!

I have a recent finish to share--the Beveled Blocks quilt is finished! This was made as an anniversary gift for my husband after his suggestion that it would be nice to have a small quilt over the mantel in our living room. He also suggested that it have a 3D or optical illusion look. Here is a close look at the finished quilt...

Beveled Blocks
37.5" x 45"

and here it is hanging over the fireplace. There is quite a bit of blue in the room, and I chose the tan fabrics to work well with the wall color.

This quilt is based on the Beveled Blocks pattern from Aardvark Quilts. I reduced the block size from 12" to 7.5" to make it fit better in the available space. 

This old Hoffman Fabrics paisley was used for the backing, and all the quilting is in the ditch to help emphasize the optical illusion.
