I caught up on my blocks yesterday and made these two blocks for Wendy and Amanda.
First up is a tall, sweater wearing girl for Wendy (now if only my legs were as skinny as they are in the blocks :). I used light weight washable yarn for the sweater portion, so hopefully it won't be too thick for quilting. It's backed with a piece of fabric, so if you need to cut off the knitting, it's doable.
And here's a block of pluses and minuses for Amanda. I had a hard time remembering how quilt blocks were constructed while making the block, so there are some extra seams in the block. Once I got into the groove, I was able to make everything fit together, though. I am smitten with this dark teal fabric. It's so rich and pretty and now I'm dreaming up a new teal quilt to make for myself.
PS. Aren't the stamps Wendy used on my envelope the coolest?
