Are you ready to incorporate a bit of magic into your next quilt? The Illusion Quilt Video Tutorial will show you a quick and easy technique for creating a shadow box quilt block that magically jumps right off the quilt.
Jenny Doan shows us how to make the quick and easy Illusion Block Quilt using Layer Cakes (10 inch squares of precut fabric). The shadow box design is a good pattern to adapt for every season, and it works well with modern decor.

We love solids or near solid prints for the Illusion Quilt Pattern, but consider incorporating bold prints as well. The image below illustrates how simply swapping rectangles for squares lends a different look.
The key to creating the dimension in the Illusion Quilt is gathering the perfect contrasting fabrics. A dark gray gives bolder look while a lighter gray is more subtle.
