Artist DYB (Do Your Own Block) Round Robin, 2011

The participants in this round robin were asked to choose an artist they admired, and piece six blocks in that style.  The other stitchers were then to select and stitch one of the 6” blocks, keeping to the artist style and theme.

The talented participants in this DYB round robin were Gerry Krueger, Hideko Ishida, Gayle Schipper,  Margreet de Reus, Helina Penttinen, and Ritva Peltola.  Nicki Lee Seavey served as the angel (replacement stitcher if needed).

Gayle chose artist Georgia O’Keefe, an American painter of large scale, bold flowers.
