Love the use of wool tweed in your throw -- great idea. The colours are fabulous. Tumbling blocks has always been one of my fave patterns -- I've never gotten around to making one though. Good luck!

love very modern vibe using a traditional pattern and unexpected fabrics. I have a family member who would LOVE this quilt. I was not able to see the zig-zagging even in close-up view. Thank you for sharing how it was made.

this is better than the original. Sounds like a good addition to my lounge!

Very nice! I especially like the 3-D effect the geometric pattern gives when the differently shaded fabrics are used. A project both useful for its warmth and also as a conversation piece.

I love this illusion throw! Good choice of colours, and I like the fact that you used thrifted wool suits - great refashion! The only correction - they are not triangles, but rhombuses :) (sorry, I'm a maths teacher, just can't help myself.. :)

I just love that 3-D effect. Your choice of fabrics is perfect to make you "feel" the design.

Wonderful! The herringbone pattern in the fabric looks fantastic.

Those 3D effects always amaze me. Great idea to repurpose suits this way. Very inspiring! Thanks!
