Escher In Shadows Finished!

 When two of my favorite things come together,
life is Wonderful!
 
As those who follow me know,
I love, love, love Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
(As my goddaughter said the other day while shopping for 
fabric with me, why would anyone use any other fabrics?
I have her brainwashed, too! :D)
 
In addition, I really like MC Escher's art.
It fascinates me.
 
So, when I found a kit with an Escher design,
made with Kaffe fabrics, it was a no-brainer.
This is the second Escher design I've made and I love them both.
 
As I said, this was a kit, but I did switch out some of the fabrics
to ones I liked better. 
 
 
 
 
This Escher quilt was actually very easy to make.
The largest challenge was staying organized.
The parts had to be placed in a specific order,
in a specific direction to make the design work.
I used labels to mark each part and kept them in order
on my cutting table as I sewed them together.
 

 
 
It looks like you could climb right into this quilt
and have a seat on one of the cubes.
 
 

 
 
The quilting design is called "Alex" and gives the quilt just
enough without taking away from the design.
 
 

 
 
I backed it with the turquoise grunge fabric that I also used for the binding.
 
 

 
 
There is one more Escher design in a kit with Kaffe.
Should I go for it? 
 
 
I'm linking to Design Wall Monday today.
 
 
Happy Quilting!

I've seen this quilt before and I'm intrigued by it. I looked for the pattern a while back, but didn't buy it at the time. Now it seems it is only available in the kit. You did a great job on it. A unique quilt.
