Tell us more about what inspired you. QuiltDude posted his version of this quilt and gave the instructions to create the quilt. I fell in love with his quilt and wanted to try it myself. I prefer QuiltDude's quilt to mine, but I will be trying it again. The coordination of the colours is truly important. Thanks QuiltDude for sharing.

I really like this! The warm medium gray for the shadow realky makes the floating effect work. You did a great job, and I really love the pieced back, too. It's like a continuation of the front. I hope you had fun doing this! I appreciate the "shout out", Ladymax. Thanks for sharing. :-) :-) :-)

Many thanks for your kind remarks. They really mean something coming from you. I am currently working very hard to use up a lot of my scraps and this is a great pattern for this. I am hoping that my next will be pink.

I am also trying my gosh-darndest to not buy any more fabric and use up all the scraps I have. I am currently working on 2 quilts - one is about 75% done, I need to finish quilting it and then it'll need to be bound. The other one is still being pieced, and it's going to be my present to someone for the Christmas gift exchange we have in my house every year. I'll be posting pics soon, so stay tuned! LOL.

I am working on the layout. I am not sure if the gray will work with the pink or a dark pink. As I am trying to use my scraps again, I hope the gray works as I don't have enough dark pink. I will just start cutting the blocks and put them on the wall and see what jumps at me. I went to the Creativ Festival here in Toronto and it is a

Sorry, it is early and I hit the wrong button. The Creativ Festival is a quilters dream and I almost held out. I did not buy much fabric. Only some hexes and a kit. What will power!!!!! I will watch for your next projects.

This is a GREAT quilt pattern and your color choices really make the optical illusion pop. Where did you get the pattern? I suspect from the QuiltDude but is the pattern available on Craftsy?

QuiltDude did a quilt that I feel in love with, and he posted directions with his picture. I followed the instructions and it worked out so well I made two of them.
