This are the first 2 blocks I made for the CBRR because I joined 2 rounds. In this blocks I used old fabrics from a Dutch town called Staphorst, where still a lot of people wear their traditional costumes. In a lot of my quilts I use Dutch traditional fabrics. For the size of the quilt I decided on 36 blocks, I will get 15 blocks back from the CBRR so I have to make and embellish 21 blocks myself. Here are some more blocks made by myself, will try to keep you updated with the embellishments I do.
For my birthday I got the "Beginner's guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery" by Ann Cox. Here you see my first try on SRE. The block is from a blockswap on CQFor Newbies and made by Kathryn.
