I think mine grew into a Shadow Block Maxi due to all the extra borders! Just couldn't stop creating with that really pretty floral print. And now it's all gone, though it certainly made a gorgeous quilt!
And notice anything different? The blocks don't have shadows. Instead, the flowers are above squares of light, and glowing through a black background. Told you I was going to surprise you! Just a different way of thinking about this block, given the right fabric to work with.
So now on to more fun! Check out the list below of all the other participants, as mine is just one of the many that were created for the Shadow Block Mini Quiltalong, sponsored by Janice at Color, Creating, and Quilting, and Jen at A Dream and a Stitch. Thank you ladies for organizing this, and thank you to Debora at Studio Dragonfly, for the tutorial. And for those who leave comments on the participants blogs, you'll be entered into a giveaway hosted by Janice!

Here's a few more pictures, since all I gave you last week were teasers!
Yes, I now have labels! How cool are those??? Name on the front, and washing instructions on the back. Hubby says they look so professional people will think the quilt was store bought. Hmm, is that a good thing?
Okay, time to go check out all the other quilts, after one last look at mine!
I'll be linking this beauty up to all the linky parties on the sidebar - be sure to visit those too!
