Round Robin Needle case Round 1

I am participating in two Round Robins this year. In the last post I wrote about the 6" blocks that we are doing with the Southern Cross Crazies.
 I have also joined in a Needle case Round Robin. This is a much smaller commitment because we had to make a block that measured 6" x 4" and when we receive the block we only have to work on a third of it because there are only four in each group.

I received Helen's block first and it was made out of soft green and cream fabric.

I had missed over  2 weeks of sewing time because of being away on the cruise but I still managed to get the sewing done on the round robins and get them posted off in time.

I decided to fill in the back corner of Helen's Needle case.

Everyone seems to have done lovely soft colours for their bases, they are going to get a shock when they see my base! I went for a bit of colour!!

I used silks in orange and peach tones, I can't wait to see what everyone in the group does with it.

Bye for now,

Oh those colours are gorgeous! I think they offer a wonderful opportunity for stunning embellishment :-)

I think that I like any colourway that has ever been sent to me on a Round Robin, Gina. I just love colour, soft or bright.
