    Casting Shadows top

    Am working on a quilt that will be a wedding gift for my daughter's friend - in Germany!

    This is from the book "Casting Shadows". I've added the filmstrip border. Lots of fun things about this quilt for me
    - the shadows - light - dark variations - mean to me the ups and downs that life will bring - how much bright the light becomes after the dark
    - there are 42 'shadow' squares - any Douglas Adams fans out there? This is the answer to life, the universe, and everything
    - the filmstrip signifies all the fun moments that will come for the young couple to cherish

    The quilt is awaiting inspiration now (and a little practice time) - haven't decided how I want to quilt it yet.

    Very creative in your thought process behind the design of this quilt. Very colorful, and the white background makes the blocks just pop off. I did a similar shadow effect on a scrappy star quilt from a Judy Martin book.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    It's very nice. Are the recipients fans of the hitchhikers guide? You could give them a dolphin on the back.

    Oh, I LOVE that idea! Not sure if they are - my daughter is a big fan, the gift is from her. Maybe she should give them a copy of the book with the quilt

    Like the quilt and like what you said about shadowsin life. So true. I just bought a shadows pattern and now waiting for fabric to arrive, I ordered some batik, so I can get started.
