First up is for Monica of Happy Zombie fame. Monica's starter was this amazing colorful piece full of her happy spirit, so I wanted to keep with that joyful spirit and also advocate for world domination of Monica and her Happy Zombie kinda life, so I free pieced a few letters and used them as the centers of some weighted log cabin blocks (mod tv blocks from the book).
Next up was Heather's quilt. She started with a wonderful herringbone pieced starter in beautiful neutrals which tiny splashes of color. Penny added this amazing fish in the last round (every herringbone quilt needs a herring) and I thought Penny's fish needed a pond in which to live, so I free-pieced my kinda herringbone pattern and attached it with a flowing, watery curve.
