Last of the Cutwork Applique

Here is the 4th block for the row robin challenge I'm participating in. It is the second of the two designs from the Sisters Challenge quilt. After completing the last of the reverse applique parts today, I sewed the blocks into a row, using a batik provided by the owner for sashing between the blocks. I think you can see how well my batik goes with it, even though the color in the photo isn't as true as the one in the scan of the block.


Then I attached my row to the owner's row, inserting sashing in between. Aren't her Celtic blocks wonderful? Click on either picture for a larger view.

I love these! The subtle colours and the combination of patterns looks wonderful. Do you get to keep these, or they going on someone else's quilt?

Oh, I wish! No, there are 7 of us involved in this row robin, each adding a row to each other's starting row and these are going in the post tomorrow to the next participant. I WAS tempted to say this row I added to never arrived so I could keep those great Celtic blocks. ;-) And I loved my own blocks so much I'm tempted to make a second set for myself - I have plenty of the fabric, it's just the time I lack at the moment.
