I am enjoying being a new follower of yours. I live the palette of this quilt. To me it looks more "seated" or grounded with the dark parts of the boxes down and the light tops. Beautiful either way!
It looks the right way up in the second picture. Awesome quilt.
what a great. The illusion looks amazing. Love that it is done in those soft grays and black.
Another beauty by you! I vote for photo #2.
It is an amazing pattern, both ways look attractive to my eye.
