They focused on the impossibilty of his drawings, specifically ones that had 'problems', like the staircase.
I prefer some of the other things he did, like Sea and Sky.
My own Escher production is coming along. I now have 14 of the 16 blocks done, with two calling to me from the sewing room.
They've been fun to do, now that I know the technique. And each one, when I take it out of the baggie, is a mystery but once it's sewn it reveals itself to be gorgeous!
I'm not sure which is my favorite -- maybe like children I love them all.
This pattern is so fascinating, it looks very complicated, and maybe a touch difficult, but it's really basic sewing. It's a variation of log cabin techniques, and there are no Y seams, which most sewers do not enjoy. If you can do a partial seam you can do this block.
Working at the quilt shop I cut LOTS of these kits. I bought one at random, so I'm not sure it is one I cut or not, but I love, love, LOVE these Kaffe Fassett prints!
The hardest part of this print was organizing the piece. The designer was the class teacher, and suggested separating the pieces into baggies to make sewing easier to manage. That worked great! I also wrote on the outside of each bag which light/medium/dark pieces I was putting in there, and whether it was a right-facing or left-facing triangle.
I can't wait to finish the last two so I can start sewing the columns. I'm already thinking that I want to do a table runner or a pillow case with the extra blocks I'll have. Oh yes, I WILL have extra blocks, because I made 12 of each, and if you read the actual instructions before you begin, you will see that for some you only need 11. Also I was only supposed to cut three of the four strips of each color into wedges, but I cut all four, so I may be sewing Escher blocks til the cows come home!
