CQI Under the Sea Round Robin - Sandra's Bare Blocks


Sandra T. of California pieced this gorgeous set of blocks for the Crazy Quilting International (CQI) Under the Sea Round Robin I am participating in. In February, she mailed her blocks to Kathy S. (aka Clothqueen on-line) in Maryland. Kathy embellished the fun block above. I wish my camera could capture all of the lovely sparkles within this block!


Next, Sandra's blocks traveled to Nicki Lee S. in Massachusetts. Nicki Lee embellished the lovely block above. Don't you just love all of the fish?!

Now the blocks have traveled to Oregon and I have the 4 lovely blocks below to chose from.





I was leaning toward this last one, but I have not quite decided. Today, another block is screaming, "Pick me! Pick me!"

The fabrics are all so fun, whichever block I choose will be a joy to stitch!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow those are gorgeous. It would be tough to make a decision of which square to embellish.

Tough acts to follow! I wouldn't know where to start. They are all so beautiful.

The two embellished blocks are absolutely fabulous! I know you will also create a fabulous block from whichever base block you choose! Just have lots of fun! :) x

Fantastic work!
The value of orange is different in each of the three bare blocks; if you already know that you will add something orange, e.g. a star fish button, or a particular thread, then let the value of the orange in the block guide you.

Gorgeous and inspiring blocks! All four blank ones are good choices. Any block you pick will look fabulous when you are done stitching and embellishing. Looking forward to seeing your handiwork ... :) Pat

What fun blocks - it will be hard to choose which one to work on, but I know that you'll do one of them beautifully!

I can hardly wait to see what you do - I know it will be beautiful! Did you see that the theme for the summer Crazy Quilting Quarterly is Under the Sea?
