Imagine my surprise when I checked my latest Pinterest daily digest to find a synopsis with 8 quilt alongs linking to my description of how I worked out The Escher Quilt!
The post was by “ILoveQuiltingForever.com” – you can get all the “quilt alongs” by following this link: https://ilovequiltingforever.com/free-quilt-tutorial-escher-quilt/#comment-3584
Have fun – I’d say this is an advanced intermediate quilt (definitely not for a beginner, even with instructions).
Another note you wouldn’t pick up if you didn’t read through the comments is this one:
Just keep in mind you need 25 fabrics – one solid for the “background” triangles and any borders you plan on adding; 24 patterned fabrics – 8 light, 8 medium, 8 dark (https://jmncreativeendeavours.ca/2021/05/08/the-escher-quilt-2/)…. You’ll likely do a lot of auditioning to build a collection of 24 fabrics. As for the background, I suggest a navy (which is what I used given the colour blend of my fabrics) but black is certainly a good option (that was the background colour in the original photo I saw). All the best with this quilt. One other thought, because trying to pull together a collection of 24 fabrics can be daunting you might consider a kit that has selected fabrics for you (these quilt kits are reasonably priced: https://www.quilt-agious.com/shop/Kits/p/Escher—Batik-x46838321.htm).From: https://jmncreativeendeavours.ca/2021/05/23/escher-quilt-finished/
It’s a small world!

I don’t get PInterest as most things I want info on takes me to nothing or adds but interesting to note it seems to be getting attention.
The digest comes in, I quickly scan it, most days I go no further but once in a while I may look at one of the items. I certainly don’t spend much time there. What I use Pinterest as an easy location to store quilting/sewing ideas. I use Twitter similarly to store interest news articles!
I can’t seem to sort Twitter really out so I never spend much time there.
Not much edifying content there!
