3D Squares Wall Quilt

Careful placement of black and red prints creates the illusion that the squares are popping off this wall hanging for a fun three-dimensional effect. Fabrics are from the Urban Scandinavian and Urban Scandinavian B+W collections by Kirstyn Cogan and the Suede collection, all from P&B Textiles.
