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.

Yes.  You should.  Now ... while we are still sheltering-in-place.   And have Nothing Else To Do.  :-)

I notice you used a chicken wire fence representation.  Do you also have any fabric with chickens that could go where you've used the yellow in this one?

Always happy to enable and distract people from important chores!  LOL!

ETA Jo had already mentioned the chicken.  How many people have to vote in favor of the idea before our dear Pirate drops her important tasks to build a chicken coop?  There are two already!
