Fabulous First-Timers #7

Another Fabulous First-Timers round robin, #7,  was completed in 2009.  The participants in this RR were all accomplished stitchers.   Most were just new to the CQI group, and Gerry was the RR "momma" - the veteran stitcher who paced and kept track of things.  These blocks turned out beautifully, and we're sure you'll enjoy the eye candy!  The stitchers were Diane in Ontario, Nicki Lee, Faye, Mary and Gerry K.

OMGG this FFT #7 group is just WOW!!! I truly LOVE the colour tones in Diane's block and Faye's stiching is exquisite. There were so many OOOOOHHS and AAAAAAHHS I can't remember them all but Gerry's hand painted buttons are to die for that is for sure!!! Just lovely!!!

This FFT#7 was my introduction to CQI and I have to tell you I loved every minute of it! I love my block the girls dressed up for me and enjoyed working on their blocks. BTW - I believe the dragonfly on Diane's block was created by Gerry and not me.

This FFT#7 was also my introduction to CQI RRs. I too found it very rewarding to be able to work on those wonderful blocks. Also thank you ladies for all your beautiful work on my block, I treasure it very much...
