I just love the way this quilt style looks. I’m usually not much of a fan of modern quilting patterns, with my taste running more towards traditional pieced quilts, but this one… Oh my!
I love the 3-D look to this one. This particular one is done in batiks. I have some. I’m not sure how much and I’ll probably have to break down and buy more. Such a shame! Shopping.
Kauffman has a nice pattern for a Shadow Box. You can find a free tutorial here. Thank you Jean MaDan!
Let me know if you make or have made one of your own!
