Fabulous First-Timers #5

This is another of the Fabulous First-Timers Round Robins from 2009.  These ladies are experienced stitchers who were new to CQI at the time of this RR (early to mid year).  Their blocks and stitching styles are all beautiful yet cohesive.   You'll enjoy this!

Ritva was the next stitcher and added this floral motif with embellishments
