Two more blocks for my D wall hanging: the tree is by Jennifer (Sewhooked), pattern called "Topsy-Turvy Trees", the sleeping cat is by Maureen

And this are all the blocks for the wall hanging! Only the panel block in the middle is missing (and some embroidery details here and there ;) )

I finished Stan's block!!
If you don't know who Stan is, you MUST check out this video

He is the most hilarious pixel character ever designed ;) I absolutely love how he keeps moving his arms and the plaid jacket is static!! :) :) old school animation!!

Anyway, I made it following Susan tutorial for the SYS series (with my own twists, as I didn't want to cut the 1050 squares, 1 inch unfinished, that compose the piece).

Final size:17''x19'', 1050 squares... 
should I repeat that? One THOUSAND and FIFTY squares :)
and yes, there is a mistake: the two bottom rows are upside down :(
I won't fix it, I think I will let it go ;)

That is NOT a giant penny... those are tiny squares, about 0.5 inches finished!!

I absolutely love this block! And I am ready to make another one of the same size for another character from the Secret of Monkey Island...

Finally, I mentioned that I will enter at least one entry in the Tiny Quilt Challenge (American Made Brand): I won't be able to show the quilt, but this is the bundle of colors I will be using!
How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!
