A Different Kind of Celtic Block

This is Wendy's Celtic round robin block and I believe it was the hardest ever round robin block for me to work on.  Although the theme was Celtic, the colors just did not inspire me at all in that direction.  I felt like I should put on something African or such.  Anyway, I stared at it and stared at in and looked and looked at Celtic designs for inspiration.  I finally found a little bit.

Here it is after my work on it.  I added a big seam with beads and trim, a bird and a dragon.  I also did a less big seam with gold rectangular beads.  The bird was based on one from Aon Celtic, and the rest was in my stash.  I did it in yellow to show up well on the purple.  It's still not saying Celtic to me, but I hope it's what Wendy likes.

I love what you did to the block and it seems inspiration took control, even though you didn't feel it.

The challenges that round robin blocks sometimes pose is part of the fun I think. I would definitely say you rose to the challenge!
