Two More Boxes


I made two more boxes today. These two illustrate the importance of getting the correct shade between the dark, medium and light parts. On the top pink one, you lose the effect because the light and medium are too close together. For the bottom one I used white instead of a light pink. The shape shows up much better. I am also very happy with the brown and cream one but less so with the top one with the pink and brown. On that one there is a bit too much pink on part of the medium color. I should have fussy cut it to avoid having the pink near the pink light area. Sometimes my stash is not extensive enough.

As far as I'm concerned, the stash is never extensive enough :-)

I like the bottom box the best too.

Very cool! They really are giving your quilt a whole new dimension! (Was that a pun?) ;-)

Those boxes do add a mysterious dimension.

The boxes are fabulous! I agree that the top one isn't quite as strong, but hey, make people work abit to see the boxes!

These are great. and they look so much harder to make than they really are, which is fun. I read your comment on Pixie's post -- if you're not going to Fargo this weekend, what about the Pine Ridge Quilters show just north of Winnipeg? I 'll email you the details.
