Monster Catch Up!

Ok I am finally caught up! I have blocks for Carissa, Amber, Nadia, Oiyi and Jenny! Sorry for the delay. They'll be in the mail tomorrow, I promise!

For Carissa's car quilt I made a road (with crosswalks) and an intersection:
Common Threads: Carissa 2

Common Threads: Carissa 1

For Amber, two log cabins (LOVE the fabric, by the way).
Common Threads: Amber 1

Common Threads: Amber 2

For Nadia, I couldn't quite make it to the 15x15 inch size. It's about 13 inches square, but I felt like if I added anything it would take away from the block. The embroidery was fun too:

For Oiyi (and little Melody) I made a patchwork heart block complete with a couple log cabins. I took apart and sewed back together this block SO many times, but I like how it finally turned out:
Common Threads: Oiyi

And last but not least, Jenny's block. I was planning on using the block from Denyse Schimdt's apron in her book, but I couldn't find my book! This one was free pieced. Fun, and I really like how it turned out. The colors are not sad at all. In fact, for my month I think I'm going to do another gray and orange quilt...
Common Threads: Jenny

Thank you all for being so patient with me!

Lynn, I love you. Although I am one worse than you (I haven't finished my tree house block yet!) it is so comforting to know that I am not the only one who is massively behind. Thankfully, I've got a three day weekend and a picked up house before me so I'm just going to plow right through! I'll hopefully be at the post office Tuesday morning.
