CQI Under the Sea Round Robin - Sandy B.'s Bare Blocks

This is the last set of blocks for me to embellish for the Crazy Quilting International (CQI) Under the Sea (UTS) Round Robin I am participating in. 

Sandy B. pieced these beauties. Mary B. was the first to receive them and she embellished the gorgeous block pictured above. Just look at that jellyfish and the cluster of shells along the bottom.


Sandra T. received the blocks next and she embellished this gem. I love her appliqued seahorse and the jelly fish.


Kathy S. received the blocks after Sandra and she embellished this darling block. I love the lace seahorse hiding in the seaweed and the jellyfish are so much fun!


Next, Nicki Lee S. worked her magic with more of her lovely laces. That fish is just amazing.

These ladies are all so talented using clusters of buttons and shells. (That is not my strong point...)


This is the block (the one above) that I have chosen to embellish.


That will leave this block for Sandy to embellish when the blocks return home to her.

This has been such a fun group of ladies to stitch with that it is hard to see this round robin end. Nicki Lee just finished embellishing a block for me, so my blocks are already on their way home! We have all enjoyed this round robin so much that we have decided to have a sequel. Sandra T. is unable to join us in the next round, but the very talented Annette G. will be stepping in. (Just wait until you see her blocks!) 

For anyone new and wondering, CQI stands for Crazy Quilting International. This group of stitchers across the globe meet on Yahoo and on Facebook. There is also a CQI blog.

For those wondering what a round robin is, this post may be helpful.

Thank you for stopping by!

These blocks are amazing. So much inspiration to a novice crazy quilter. I love the jelly fish, no surprise really as I think they are amazing creatures

They are all lovely blocks, to be sure. And heavy. =) I look forward to seeing what you stitch on your block.
