Shadow Box Blocks

This will be Beach Boys 2. I had fussy cut the squares for Beach Boys (yesterday's post); the leftover fabric had full images of dogs, but I could no longer cut them all the same size.

Instead, I framed the different size squares and cut the blocks the same size. Then I added shadows to the blocks. They will really stand out when I sash these with white. And I have the cutest fabric for the borders!

I wanted to show close ups of the five different dogs-on-the-beach scenes.

This one's drinking 'puspi cola".

Somebody needs a nap.

Here come the young studly dudes...

These guys remind me of the characters from the old movie "Cocoon"!

I've linked this up with Judy's Design Wall Monday at http://www.patchworktimes.com/

Oh, I'm learning so much from you. So that's how you make a shadow box! I'm trying so hard not to covet your cool doggie fabric!!! :O)

I have the cat version of that print. (I have going as well & I have the 2 smaller versions too.) &&&&& I actually have an unbound quilt that used the smaller version. :o)

As a cat person, I can admit that that puppy version is pretty darn cute too.

By "Going" I meant that they made the same fabric showing the tail ends.

I luv the quilt! My Mother made a scrub top out of the cat's on the beach. Guess where I work.
