DescriptionThis boldly graphic and geometric quilt has bold patterns and colors, in varying shades of red, yellow, blue, and green. The central layout is divided into nine equal sections, each with a diamond checkerboard center and circular border. With its undulating colors and lines, the quilt has an optical illusion effect.
