Neat quilt. Love the green border... Chris
Absolutely beautiful! The colors in here just pop. Love it. I have been planning one. Thanks for the encouragement.
Can I ask how long your longest block is? I am thinking of using a pack of FQ's and wonder if they are long enough or should I buy a several pieces of "yardage" to get the long ones.

I LOVE these shadow quilts and love all your colors. This is on my bucket list.
I don't mind coming to work. But that 8 hr. wait to go home is a drag.
Kim, that's gorgeous! Those colors really pop with that black shadow.

I love the elongated blocks and shadows. I have a pattern in one of my quilting mags from a few years ago that uses squares of color. Might have to rethink that one.
The quilt is beautiful. Would you mind sharing with all of us what pattern you used and where it came from? It's very inspiring.
It's beautiful! Love the colors.
I really like the colors you used in this quilt, I've seen a few pics of others, but the colors in this one are great. Now, of course, I have to add this to my to do list.
The border, after i got it, seemed to clash with it,(the flowers)..so a friend suggested i add the small dark purple border, to give it some space..and i think it worked.
i loved the fabric line and the flowers! Moda "Simple Pleasures"
Will Quilt for Chocolate helped me with picking out the pattern "Shadow Box". Her mom did one.
Evelyn B made one..i think it was in purples and pinks maybe.? with small shadow blocks off to the side of the main quilt. it was beautiful..it was inspiring!
the "shadow" is actually a deep linen looking purple.
It is beautiful. I love everything about it. What a great pattern for using up those special fabrics we have a little of stashed away.

Really nice quilts ladies. You all did a great job! Seeing such nice quilts made me realize, I haven't finished anything in ages. I am a block maker I think. And I need to get in gear.
Yummy prints, Kim!
Looks like the "Maine" quilters have chimmed in, lol!
I can't top anything that the others have already said: It is SO strikingly beautiful, your choice of colors just POP!!! I really love it!!!!!
Loving all those shadow quillts, what's not to like about them? LOL
[b]It is a Fat Quarter Friendly Quilt! Calls for (7) FQ's for 68" x 81" Quilt finished

Choose (4) strips and subcut (8) 5 1/2" x 9"
It is wonderful Kim! Your fabrics are beautiful and the shadow effect makes them stand out so nicely. I like the others shown too. Think this will be on the to-do list for me!
I love it! I love that pattern! I love the fabric choices! So what I'm trying to say is...I LOVE IT!

The colors are fantastic. Well done, Kim. Do you still have my address? I love your quilt. It just really snaps and is so crisp and clean looking.
