but my mind went to black, white and gray.

because that is the quinessential  dark/medium/light?   I think the hollow cubes would look stunning in that colorway .. with maybe a couple of cubes having the interior as a different pure color?  Hmmmm .... something else to think of.  :-)

I was digging through stuff today looking for a pattern for a baby quilt.  Why is it not with all the other patterns?  That remains a mystery.  However, what I did find was a copy of a fun quilt called Hollow Cubes.  I had to laugh.  I guess I was serious when I told you I really really liked it!

Looking forward to seeing your progress.

LOL!   It must be our shared good taste. :-)

I'm also assuming that it's an easy, machine pieced version?  Cuz there is NO WAY I would EVER EPP a baby quilt.  :-)

All righty, Cris ... it's all your fault.

You got me thinking of black and white and color hollow cubes.  I really wasn't going to DO anything about it, except think that it would be a cool color them, when ... digging through my scraps, I found a yellow background with white & black daisies.

Well, that did it.  I could just SEE a black fabric, a white fabric with just a little bit of black, and that yellow-black-white fabric as a bridge between the other two.  I immediately dropped the Important Thing I was doing and made a hollow cube.  Just for you.  Well, not FOR you, you understand, but definitely under your influence. :-)

Doesn't it look *cool*?!?!?!?   :-)

It does look cool and like its waiting for a chicken.  You almost have me to the point of wanting to do a project.

I really like that one. I have been seeing these on my Pinterest feed lately and just love them. I saw some today that were mixed with one block wonder hexies................really cool!

yeah, there's another version that has a smaller "pop-out" inside the hollow cube.  I haven't tried that variation ... lemme whet my whistle with this one, first!  :-)

THAT is really neat.  Those types of quilts have always intrigued me.  Can't wait to see the actual top you'll make. Fabric is perfect for thing as well.

I need to get "hot to trot" and open up my EQ8 and try one of these.  I have several of Marci Baker's books on such quilts.  Maybe I should also pull them out of the garage and take another look.
