    My "Magic Squares' Quilt is done!

    Finally finished putting on borders on the Magic Square Quilt and it is off to the LAQ It ended up at 102 inches to account for some quilting "shrinkage". The binding will be the rust color in the second border. I ended up choosing non-dramatic borders so the eye focuses on the quilt center not the outside. Made from all batiks just in case you are wondering.

    How awesome it that? It looks so complex and yet looks fairly straightward to construct. Nice job.

    Beautiful and sew well done! The batiks are perfect for that pattern as they give the full effect of the 3D squares.

    My thoughts EXACTLY! I think you were right about the "plain" borders... they really let the center section shine! I love the fabrics in this quilt! Great job!

    Klasse!! Your color choices really make the 3 dimensions distinct. Another one to put on my to-do list.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
