Hello!I hope you are having a great day today! I wanted to share a quilt with you that I made as a result of a workshop I took at my quilt guild. The workshop was taught by Josephine Millett, a member of our guild. We used the pattern Colorful Cubes, by ItsSewSue Patterns. The optical illusion of the empty 3D cubes is achieved by using a light, medium, and dark fabric for each cube, placed in a specific location on each cube. I chose to use leftover fabric from my cubes to make a piano key border for the quilt.This pattern is similar to Tumbling Blocks in the 3D illusion it gives.
It was a fun class and I was really motivated to finish it at home! It measures about 45" square. I am thinking of giving it to a little boy in our church that has been receiving chemo treatments for cancer. I know you often get cold while getting treatments, and I thought this "quilt of many colors" might keep him warm, and remind him how much God loves him.
Do you quilt? Have you ever tried a 3D quilt? It's alot of fun as long as you follow the directions to a tee. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
