Tone on Tone DYB RR - My blocks

I'm so happy to have my Tone on Tone blocks back home.  This is how I sent them out:  Six inch squares in rainbow colours.  Five would be chosen by the group and the remaining one I would do.  In the booklet I mentioned that they would probably be made into a small wall hanging for a child's room.


Cathy L. chose the orange block and added a wonderful dinosaur, a sparkly corner with a beetle, and some neat ric rac. I also see some tiny kiko's flowers in among the winding chain. 

Cheryl A worked on the yellow block .  She brought it to sparkling light with the enormous  sun.    It's clever the way the sun's rays show off her neat stitching.

Ritva worked on the blue block.  In amongst her wonderful seams, she's added  the perfect charms for a wee boy:  teddies and the truck.

Candji's choice was red.  Her dramatic dragon is definitely the focal point.  There's sparkly seam treatments  and a neat kite to complete the scene.
Green was chosen by Rita.  Her spider is just waiting for his next meal!  Look closely and you will also see a butterfly, some fishes, worms and a turtle, not to mention some lovely seamwork.

Thanks, ladies.  I love all your work.

These blocks turned out so beautiful, Diane. Your piecing, colors and idea (child’s bedroom) gave them a great start. Like Gerry, I can’t wait to see what you do with the purple one! Big hugs, dear friend! Cathy
