GIVE AWAYS, N2G-VIRGINIA'S BLOCK

This morning, in reading Stina's blog, she pointed out 2 new giveaways. The first is JulieK.. She is giving away a quilt. The other is My Favourite Things... She is giving away a pattern.

The past almost week, I have been also working on Virginia's block from the CQI, New 2 Group RR. I am mailing it out today.


Virginia is from Madrid, Spain. This is the first time have been in an international RR and I am quite excited. Virginia wanted each of us to add a word to her block, and I added Love, my favorite. I also added a bit of dyed lace above this and this came from one of the laces that May Britt sent me. This one really looked good on this block.







I also added a piece of trim that came from Nadine's treasure box of trims. I did the daisy-like flowers in this section.












This is the entire block. Sandi, the person that worked on it before me added the word "Art" in the bottom corner.











Next projects I need to have finished by next week, are my TIF challenge for April, and I need to quilt my Four Seasons Swap, for the Spring Quilt swap.

Unusual to have a crazy quilt for a round robin but what a great idea.

You are so brave to be participating in an international RR and so focused. I haven't been able to get much done as of late. Perhaps I need to make a list and get satisfaction & motivation out of crossing out the item complete. Lovely block! Have a great weekend!
