congratulations - definitely an accomplishment.  Are you going to quilt this one soon?  It's so pretty I'd be sad to see to added to the UFO closet....

and just like that she finished another forever project!!!

No, not quite.  I'm going to add a black Fairy Frost border around the whole thing ... to "fill in the gaps" between the points and for a narrow border beyond the infill.  The fill-in stuff will be EPP.  The narrow border will probably be machine stitched since it's going to be LONG straight seams.

I have another idea floating around that will extend the life for a while.  I'll have to wait until the black border goes up then audition my idea to see if it works well.

So, it's not QUITE done.   Forever Projects tend to live on.  :-)

I know!  I've been looking around for finished Inner Cube quilts.  I know they are out there but no one is showing them off.  I'd like to see how their quilting was done.

Since this is SO busy, both in in terms of color and layout, there's no opportunity for fancy quilting.  I'm thinking that an all-over motif of some sort would be appropriate .. maybe a Twisted Ribbon Meander.   I have time to think about it.

It is definitely beautiful!

what about this:  you could follow the hexie diagonals.  I don't like to do it unless I have piecing to keep me going straight.  but it's pretty fast and easy.

So, I found the quilter who did the quilting for the designer.  (Quilting is my Bliss in Yakima, WA).   She did custom quilting on Inner Cube ... and catch me before I faint ... her quilting is incredible. 

Those 3-color hexagons are TWO INCHES on a side ... large for an EPP shape; SMALL for quilting.

And the black-n-white striped fabric?  I *think* she SITD along each stripe.  O.M.G.

I'd actually like to get my tops quilted within my lifetime cuz it's gonna be difficult to do it afterwards.  :-)

well, there are people that truely LOVE LOVE LOVE to quilt.  I don't mind it much, but I would rather be piecing.  I'm generally glad when it's done.  This person is likely in that Love to quilt camp.

someone on FB knew the name of the pattern so I went & looked.  Interesting to see all the different layouts and what a difference colors makes.  many look like completely different quilts!

This one is fun with the positive/negative values.  I may give that one a try with white and black novelties.

So many possibilities.  very fun and so much movement!

Wow! I'm glad you found the pattern.  I just saw a photo somewhere and didn't bother to investigate. Those other layouts are amazing.
