Call for Quilts! Optical Illusions

My sister Eileen Lovett in Rhode Island made this amazing thousand pyramids quilt that she calls "A Thousand Welcomes." I like how this quilt seems to have curves in it, but all the triangles have straight edges. And look at that binding!

If you've made an optical illusion quilt that you'd like to share with the up-coming OnlineQuilt Museum, please email photos (whole quilt and one or two details) to karengriska@optonline.net
Include your name, the title of the quilt, where you live and the name of the designer if you used a pattern. Jpegs as an attachment are best. (Or if they're on the Internet somewhere I can get them there.) Thanks!
