These are the blocks I received from the participants of our add-on-block-robbin. They had a big challenge from me, as I asked them to use only fabrics I had hand-dyed, and if needed they could take some little bits of other fabrics (not only cotton). My fabric choice was very challenging, because these fabrics are not bright and colourfull as the other participants had. 
Please see:
the blocks I made.

In my reference notes  I had a thought and wrote that it would be great if it was possible to make just women, but I thought it was not possible. The heroes are mostly male and sometimes a princess is counterbalancing the testosterone level :-) But the participants all accepted the challenge and sewed only women of all kinds for me. I am very, very happy and surprised about the result!

There is the block with Anakin and his dangerous shadow muting to Darth Vader. This is the block I wished me from Rebecca, it is a fabulous one. I´ll add another "male" block I did: Luke Skywalker training with Yoda on his foot. That will be enough testosterone for the whole thing!

Actually I think of waving new fabrics (like teached from Dena at the Quiltuniversity) to make a wild sashing and taht will bring unity and movement with my own hand-dyed leftovers.
I am very, very pleased how the participants used my own fabrics. For me the fabrics have a direction, and it is so interesting to see how the structures, movements, slight designs were used in this robin. That is an incredible work. Thanks to all.

I did not ask the participants for any siggies or other (like fill-in blocks) but wanted them to make me a "creative" block, there was only one condition, a special glitter-thread from Madeira had to be used in the block, I gave them the thread!
How should they use it? there was no rule for it, just used the thread in your creative block.
I expectec the participants to try something may be new for them, and may be get them motivated and to have fun in experimentation. 
The results are various and wonderful.
