Shadow Blocks Mini - A Finished Quilt

This weekend's project was a fun mini quilt featuring Kaffe Fassett prints.

The idea was to make each print appear to have a shadow or to be floating on the background.

Here is the top before quilting. To help the shadow recede more, the darker fabric around each block is heavily quilted while the rest of the quilt is more lightly quilted.

The quilting gives the back a lot of texture.

Each block finishes at 3" square. The focus prints finish at 2 1/2" square. Overall, this mini quilt finishes at 17 1/2" x 21 1/2".

The binding is a neutral print and includes both the background and shadow color.

The binding is machine stitched.

I love how it looks hanging on the wall. It would also make a great table topper.

This was a fun project to make. I will be posting a tutorial for how to make this quilt later this week.

This quilt is available for purchase.


  1. Wonderful quilt. The shadow effect is amazing and it makes such a difference to the design!!

  2. Wow, I thought it was a lot bigger when I saw the first picture! I don't usually care too much for Kaffe but I really like what you've done with them here; maybe because you didn't use ALL the colors! :)


Thank you. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.
