One more down and one to go !


This is Nina's Crazy Quilt Round Robin.
It will be traveling to the last participant on Monday.
It looks good, but it was hard to decide what to add.
The empty space was big, and it was also a point to not overwhelm the blue heart with to bold design, and also balance the previous work.
The hollyhock design has been spinning around in my head for some time and I think it came out very well, in my not so humble opinion ;-)
The leaves are appliqued by free motion on the sewing machine. The stem and flowers are done by hand and 3 strands of embroidery floss.
This is my contribution:
The next round is already here, as is my block, finished.It looks lovely.I plan to finish the next round and blog it before I blog my own block.
One thing that has added to this RR in a very positive way:Everybody is keeping the time schedule, all the time - in fact we often are sending before deadlines.Very good for 7 people with busy lives !

It is such beautiful and delicate work. It almost makes me want to bring out my cq work.
Also wonderful how the group in the RR were able to work together, come up with such beautiful work, and still meet the deadlines. I'll join in on the big round of applause.
