Fool's Gold RR - Block Barbara embellished for me

I am just getting settled home from working at the lake for the season and going to a weekend meeting in Saskatoon.  At last I can see things having an opportunity to get back to normal!

So, I thought I would start out by posting photos of the blocks I received back in the Fools Gold Round Robin from Crazy Quilting International.  This was a DYB (Do Your Block) Round Robin where each participant makes 6 blocks, 6 inches square each, and everyone in the round robin fully embellishes one of each other person's blocks. In the end you receive the six blocks you pieced back with five embellished fully and one left for you to complete.   Clear as mud? lol

Anyway, this is the lovely block which Barbara Warner stitched on for me. I love this beautiful fan she did and the lovely floral spray!  I pieced all my blocks from wedding dress fabrics and my request from the others was pretty vague - that I would like something romantic.   Barbara hit the nail on the head as far as I am concerned.  Thank you Barbara!!
