    It's great. I think quilting in circles would be fantatstic.

    This is a pattern called 'Think Outside the Box' - toadusa.com has a kit that you can order. Several quilters on the forum have made or are in the process of making this - either with the kit or without (I reverse-engineered it). If you do a search, it should come up.

    actually, the site is toadusew.com

    OMGosh! That is spectacular! I just love how the eye moves all around and back to the center! Very "eye" appealing! Good luck to you!

    See the correct address - toadusew.com!! And no, it isn't difficult. This is a standard Log Cabin pattern - the way you manipulate the fabrics is what creates the visual effects. I think that the balck and white probably shows it best.

    One word of caution - you do have to be VERY careful when you put the blocks together so that the colored squares line up properly. One of the quilters on this forum had some tips and I would look those up, but I also found that you need to pin, pin, pin!!!!!

    I can already envision my color choices. I hope I get the pattern soon. I think I am going to make this for my mom as a surprise.

    That is just beautiful. I love the 3D effect. I would use circles. Sounds good to me.

    I love the look of the quilt and the illusion it creates. I would highlight that effect by quilting radiating lines out from the center block. Any way you do it, the quilt is a winner! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I really love this. I think I would QID around the blue squares and the black squares so it would give a little trapunto effect to the squares in between. Maybe try one corner with a long stitch that you could remove easily. See if it gives the right effect I did this on a Kaffe fasset handkerchief quilt and ir worked beautifully.

    Love your quilt. It is a fun one to make, isn't it. Very satisfying when you're finished.
    When I asked Chloe at "ToadUSew" how she quilted her quilts she said that her first one was quilted around each of the logs. Her other "Thinking Outside the Box" quilts she said she experimented with other quilting ideas.
    As you know from my post I quilted diagonals and skipped over the colored blocks because I didn't want my black quilting thread showing up in them.
    I really don't think you can do anything wrong when it comes to quilting this quilt. The pattern is strong enough to shine through the quilting.
    Main thing - have fun!
    Looking great already.

    Yvonne thank you!!I was hoping you saw it because the one you made for your grandson gave me the inspiration to make mine. You have to tell Chloe about it although she may already know. Maybe another blip in orders fot kits haha. I still have a bit of time to think about the quilting although there have been some good ideas from everyone! Hopefully I will have finalized the design when I get back from Atlanta...quilters. Do give this a try. It is pretty easy and fun to make!!!

    I'd have to see this one in person to believe it's a flat quilt; those five layers rising up into the air are like nothing I've ever seen.

    No advice on how to quilt it, but in this case I'd bypass the squares/circle "rule". IMO circles would take away from that floating image.

    Please let us know if you win (even better, when you win). This deserves an award.

    Awesome 3D look!!! I like it a lot. I do like the idea of starting with a small circle in the middle and working out getting bigger and bigger. That would intensify the 3D look, I think.

    Can't wait to see what you do!!!
