Stash Quilt

Decided that I wanted to start on a quilt that will be a baby gift. I think I have lots of time, but I am horrible at remembering when people are due, and this is for a friend who lives on the other side of the country so I will not be getting any visual clues.
Decided that I wanted to try blocks floating with their shadows. Had see a couple of quilts like this but did not have a pattern so had to just see how it when. This quilt is made from the oldest fabrics I have in my stash. I started with the feature fabric, which is left over from the first I spy quilt I made, which was the second quilt I ever made. Picked the largest block I could based on the fabric I had. Then looked in the stash for a background fabric, and found this purple, this was the first fabric that I picked up that did not have a project in mind. It was on sale and I was on a shop hop with the first quilt I belong to.
I could not find a fabric I liked for a shadow so I did pick that up, but over all it feels great to be using the stash. I have made the block and have started on the sashing, I think its will look pretty good.

I think it looks great! I love your I Spy blocks - always a fun quilt for a child (and a parent).
