DYB blocks came home

This is the result made from 6 DYB RR blocks. We did this DYB RR ( do your block round robin) in the CQI group.
I sewed those block in May and they came home just in time to make this beautiful wall-quilt of them.
I quilted this quilt by hand in the ditch around the blocks and between the green and red border. It was not that easy because of all the beads and buttons and the thickness of the material. CQ has often many layers in the seams. But I managed and not too bad I think.
In the blocks I did some knots.
A sleeve and a date on the back.
The blocks are embellished by Simone ( Italy) Cobi (the Netherlands) Lauri, Lyn and Leslie (did 2 blocks), all from the USA.
Ladies thank you very much, you all have done a wonderful job.
The size of the quilt is 68 x 51 cm or 26,5 x 20,25 inch.
It goes to our daughter and grandchildren.
Don't forget to click on the photo to see the details of the beautiful embroidery, bead-work and embellishments!

It is so festive Ati and some wonderful seam work. I adore the button snowmen and also wondering if Cobi did the beautiful tatted snowflake. You have it done in plenty of time for Xmas.....

Great job...
