Round Robin-Alison's block

I am managing to keep up to date with the Southern Cross Crazies Round Robin. Last month I had Alison's blocks to choose from. Everyone in the Round Robin  made 8 base blocks and then they picked a theme for the embroidery. Alison had chosen an underwater theme, just like Helen had a couple of months ago.

I picked one of the blocks that would suit the sort of stitching that I do.

Alison had chosen silk fabrics in blues and greens but the dark fabric in the centre that looks a bit woven had a lot of texture, it felt like a cross between micro-fibre and velvet.

Here's what it looked like when it was finished.

This time I remembered to take photos of the other blocks that people had already made.

Don't they look beautiful? I am sure Alison will be pleased when her blocks finally make there way back to her.

Bye for now,

Wonderful stitch interpretations of the theme.
