What are you most proud of? I like the fact that the effect turned out quite well, even though I am no expert.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's easier than you think, just take your time and choose your background and the "shadow" fabric so they work together. Large, bright colorful prints make the floating blocks pop out. Have fun with it, enjoy the process!

Hi I have your pattern for the floating blocks which is fantastic. It will be my next project. Did you do any quilting on this? if so can you tell me which areas you did and did you keep it plain. Thanks

Hello, Purrest. For the actual quilting, I stitched in the ditch all around the blocks and the "shadows". Then I went back inside the big blocks and stitched gently wavy lines. It was simple, because at the time I did not know how to FMQ. Good luck with your version, and please post on here when you're done, I'd love to see your take on this!

I am just beginning to master FMQ but like you I feel the quilt does not need too much as it might take away the 3D effect. When I have made it I will certainly post it on Craftsy. Keep up the great work!!

Very nice. I just drew a very small version. I am looking for a couple interesting and quick patterns that I can use to make charity quilts. I am hoping the piecing is as easy as drawing the pattern. Thanks.
