Looks like a traditional quilt block. I like how all the areas to remove have not been removed. The colors are amazing. Design quite mathematical.

This is nice. Good planning. The light color looks like lace at first glance. At which layer(s) did you put the light color fabric?

07/22/2012 Flag

And, how many layers? Did you couch this project, also?

07/22/2012 Flag

There are 4 full layers with the light fabric being layer 2 as well as I put a square of the light fabric behind each of the 4 center squares making a 5th layer

Hi Gayla JM, I love love love your quilt, I also was wanting to make a memory quilt/throw using the stitch and slash technique by incorporating some fabric from my Dad's shirts and pictures, like you did on the 5th layer only doing it on the 4th layer so it would show bigger, but I was concerned it would make the quilt/throw to stiff? Also what did you use for a backing and binding to finish the quilt, help me please, this is a present for my daughters 31st b-day.

I don't think it would make it too stiff. Just don't overlap their edges. I used a regular piece of cotton fabric on the back like any quilt with a cotton batting. I finished the edge with piping. Not too hard of a binding but not a beginner thing either. Not sure if you are use to putting in piping or not.
