possible double post:

I really like how the print squares appear to float over the rest of the quilt.

Did you invent this pattern?

I'm not trying to take over the post, but I figure it's been since February so I'll share what I did for this pattern.  My finished size was 36"x36", so I made 9 squares - each square is 12".  The center square is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2", and all of the other squares are 3 1/2" x 3 1/2".  This means all of the cream, pink, and yellow squares.  30 pink, 24 yellow, 54 cream.  My example block will be the pink and cream one.  Sew together 2 of cream, cream, pink, pink to make two strips.  Sew together 2 of cream, pink.  Sew a cream, pink onto opposite sides of center square (make sure they're reversed).  Then sew the strip of cream, cream, pink, pink onto the matching long side of the center square.  Assembly is really easy if you figure out how many of each you'll need so you can sew together the correct combinations of small squares.  Good luck! 

I'm making another one of these quilts so I'll try to take pictures as I go.

yikes.  just saw this.  i believe the block is called squares in squares from the quilter's cache.
