    Shadowbox quilt

    Just finished this shadowbox quilt for the goddaughter's 18th birthday. She loves the show "Family Guy". I've been wanting to make this quilt and the large prints were perfect. Haven't ever done mitered corners before & luckily there weren't many. After 4 practices on throwaway fabric I was ready to try it for real. The most important thing I discovered was I was better off stopping a 1/2 stitch short on the actual mitered point otherwise I ended up with a wrinkle.

    Great job! The colors are very nice. I have never done mitered corners myself, but yours look good

    Beautiful quilt. Not sure what mitered corners are. Is that where the teal and black joins?

    Very nice job. Is this your own design or a pattern. Would love to make one.

    A very interesting design. It looks as though boxes are sitting on top of the quilt.
    Very eye catching, good job!!

    I love it! I love how you put a frame around the whole thing, so it's lots of little boxes sitting on a big box.
