Optical Illusions giveaway! (closed)

hi everyone! thanks for stopping by for the blog tour, I hope you've been enjoying it so far! We're having fun showing off the projects compiled for Optical Illusions. This book is another winner from the growing library of My Stars.



One thing I enjoy about their books is the staging choices for the quilt photos. The photos for Optical Illusions were shot in Lawrence, KS, one of our favorite places to hang out. It's a quirky little town, home of the Jayhawks, with a fun downtown, great quilt guild, brewery, delicious places to eat, live music, Sarah's fabrics... Can you tell I love it there?!



Katie Larson's Curvilinear quilt is so cool. I love the movement and appearance of curves where there are none. And she made a single block version in another colorway, because she's fabulous. Read more about her quilts and see her mad crafty skills at her blog, the Crafting Shell.



Tangerine Tumbler by Mary Kay Fosnacht is awesome. And that photo is the best, isn't it?  I can see this quilt made in so many color combos!



I also really like the Tropical Storm quilt by Tia Curtis. I like the subtle gradations of color and pops of prints. It would be a good stash buster project! Plus, half square triangles. You know I love them. You can see more photos of it at her blog today. She did different quilting designs in each color, which makes it fun to look at.

Those are just 3 of the 9 fantastic quilts in Optical Illusions. It's really fun to see these quilters unique talents showcased in a cool book. It's kind of like the show & tell at the KCMQG - inspiring and smile inducing :) You can grab a copy now at their site.

I do have a copy of the book to giveaway, so just tell me in the comments what you're working on this week. I'll check back in a week and choose a random winner. Be sure to stop at the other blogs in the party for more giveaways! Here's the list again:
