This block belongs to Cathy from Iowa - she pieced the block and sent it to me. I added some embellishing, then will mail it on to the next gal in our group of four. We will get our blocks back at the end of July/beginning of August. We never know exactly what the blocks will look like, although we can add lists of likes/dislikes or suggestions for the theme of the block. And, I have always been extremely happy with the work done by the ladies of this group. Some of them are very new to the art, but everyone does their best work and it's always a beautiful completed block.
