CQI Under the Sea Round Robin #2 - Kathy Semone's Completed Block!


Today, I finished embellishing this block for Kathy Semone.


Above is a photo of the block prior to embellishment.


If you have followed my recent posts, you will recognize the mermaid above. I have been working on her as a part of Kathy Shaw's free Intermediate Crazy Quilt Course (ICQC) #102. She is also one of two free mermaid designs freely available at Shawkl Designs. (If you have finished ICQC #103 and are interested in taking ICQC #104, registration is open through the tomorrow, the 10th. Details are here.)


The green sea star charm was originally silver - I made it green as a part of ICQC #102.


Sneak peeks of this block were also shared as part of my TAST posts. I used barred chain stitches and satin stitches taught by Sharon Boggon at Pintangle.com.  The bodies of the jellies above were created with padded satin stitches, which is a variation of the satin stitch that is also taught through TAST.


Above is a photo of Kathy's two completed blocks. The one on the left was embellished by Barbara Nicki Lee Seavey and the one on the right was embellished by me. I do hope Kathy likes her blocks!

For those of you wondering what a round robin is, this post may help. 

Crazy Quilting International (CQI) is a group that meets on Facebook and on Yahoo! You may see some of the work members have done at the CQI blog.


Thanks for stopping by!
