Shadow Box

I have always admired the shadow box quilts, so I was pleased when Donnaleen, a friend from my stitching group brought me this beautiful showcase of her Australian fabric collection.  She made this quilt for her little grandson. I can just imagine the fun he will have searching out the animals in this quilt.

Sometimes it is not clear to me what to quilt in all the blocks, I try to follow the design of the fabric or outline something.  When all else fails I go to one of my books  by  Angela Walters and do some of her fills.

We decided on a circuit box background fill in a grey “So Fine” thread.
