A lot of my quilting buddies wanted to know how this was made, and since it's such an easy quilt, I decided to share it as a free tutorial!
You'll need to decide what color you want to use for your shadows and border, and what color you want to use for your background. (I chose black shadows and a white background.)
From your background fabric, cut:
48 squares 1-1/2" x 1-1/2"
5 squares 2" x 2"
28 strips 2" x 9-1/2"
30 strips 2" x 11"
From your shadow fabric, cut:
24 strips 1-1/2" x 7-1/2"
24 strips 1-1/2" x 8-1/2"
(Outside border is cut 4-1/2" wide on my quilt.)
Next, cut 24 squares from all different fabrics @ 8-1/2" x 8-1/2"
Now you'll sew one of your small white squares to your 7-1/2" long shadow strip
for the bottom of each square:
Next you'll sew one of your small white squares to your 8-1/2" shadow strip
for the side of the square:
Sew the bottom strip to the scrappy square, and then the side. It will look like this:
Now you'll add your sashing parts. First, to the bottom of the square above,
you will add one of your 2" x 9-1/2" strips of background fabric.
Then to the left side of the square you will add one of your 2" x 11" strips of
background fabric. Sew 4 blocks together per row, and finish the row with a final
2" x 11" strip of background.
Make 6 rows like that, and sew them together, adding a final set of 9-1/2" background strips with 2" squares of background fabric to your top row, and then your outter border, so that it looks like this:
Your finished quilt will be about 51-1/2" x 72-1/2"
