Elaine Wick Poplin wanted to create an optical illusion and with Vertigo. We think she succeeded. She created four concentric circles that seem to intertwine and actually don't, but your eye sees what it wants to see.
What do your eyes tell you?
"Dared by a friend, I reconstructed the 2002 Pinna illusion and made a quilt of it. Foundation paper pieced, hand-appliqued, and free-motion quilted. Permission to show the quilt graciously granted by Biangio Pinna, the original designer of the illusion."
