SHADOW BOX, 3″ Dark

14 Shadow Box
Today’s Block

This is the Shadow Box block to which I referred a couple of days ago. Since I just drafted it up before checking whether it was a named block, it is not exactly the same as the original Shadow Box, from Farm Journal and Farmer’s Wife, published around 1957 (cited in Beyer), and again in Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine in 1974 (cited in Brackman). That block looked like:
