Black Magic

Black Magic by Maxine Moore

The featured quilt of the week in the October 10, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter  is called Black Magic. It was created by Maxine Moore. This quilt recently was part of the 2010 Atlanta Quilt Festival© exhibit held at the South Fulton Arts Center in College Park, GA

Black Magic creates an optical illusion of movement. The illusion is created by the clever placement of different sized squares. Optical illusion quilts work best in highly contrasting fabrics. Maxine chose red and black for her 26 x 26 inch quilt.

Some people may think it’s magic to make a quilt appear to move, but as in all magic, once you know the secret it can all be explained.
