Blocks for Amy and Rossie

I got down to business yesterday and made these blocks for Amy and Rossie.


Three blocks for Amy (12.5, 6.5 and 3.5)



And one long strip for Rossie. I was wracking my brain trying to come up with the perfect quote and I even browsed the Yale Book of Quotations, but I couldn't find any good short phrases. I think my cats were trying to give me some hints because they were climbing on my lap and sewing machine while I was trying to come up with a quote. So, the blocks say their names: "Shinji" and "NukuNuku." They are japanese names, so I thought they'd work with a quilt by a japanese designer. I sewed the two names together and the blocks are 3.5" tall, but they are a little longer than 2 feet wide, so you might need to rip them apart if they're too long, Rossie.

These are great Rebekah - I know that was the hardest part for me - figuring out what to "say".
