Monday CQ project

Our Monday sewing club, has decided to do a CQ round robin, as if I haven't enough projects to do now.
Oh well, what is one more pressure.  We are only doing 1 block and each person embellishes a 1/4 of the block.  We chose a hexagon design with the intent to make a hexagon CQ quilt.  However, 1 block does not make a quilt, so I guess we plan to do more round robins this year.

I have to say, piecing the original CQ block is so hard for me - I never end up with the right seam allowance.

Here is the block - it is made entirely with satins.  The colors look better in person, but even if not, when the block is embellished it is amazing how great it all comes together.
