Whoop-Whoop Friday!!! 1-31-14

Another WHOOP-WHOOP Friday and I am super excited to show off what I FINIALLY got done this week!!!

Re-worked from Candamar Designs' Police Officer'
Here is the second to the 2 designs I re-worked off of Candamar Designs' 'Police Officer' chart. This block, and the one below, was stitched for LoveQuilts and will go to a 9 year old boy who is sick and in need of some comfort. I re-worked these two because another stitcher signed up to stitch the same chart. Usually LoveQuilts doesn't allow this, but because we were coming up short with military and police designs they said it would be okay. I wanted to make the blocks look as different from one another as possible, so I re-arranged the lay-out. I think it worked pretty good:)

Both re-worked from Candamar Designs' Police Officer
And here the two of them are together. I have to tell you that I am always excited when I sign up to stitch a block for a kid in need, always excited when I start stitching the block, and ALWAYS ready to pull my hair out as I'm finishing up the block!! Since the designs are usually more detailed and of a subject matter that I wouldn't stitch for myself, I'm usually ready to be DONE with the block by the end of it!! :) Though I will say that the 2nd block was really easy since it just had the words.

These have both been signed and mailed off and will join other blocks to be made into a quilt. So, now, I won't have to blog about these two again!!

The two blocks are lovely and I bet they'll definitely help conforting the boy who's going to receive them :) Great work :)
