I love how yours has more of a 3D look to it then others I've seen, is this due to the choice of fabrics or the quilting?? did you use a print and a solid on the browns?

Good question, Aunti-M! The 3-D look is created with the value of the prints - darker next to a lighter print gives movement. Doesn't have to be a solid color.

Gorgeous!! Can I ask which company fabrics you used for your quilt top? Is this for a queen or king size bed?
