Zebra/Panda/Cow Blankie

 I loved this yarn -- 100% merino wool from Wales -- lovely to crochet but I had an odd number of skeins so it turned out to be an odd size -- 37"x44" -- will keep it as a throw for chilly nights. Not sure why the edging is ripply but I kind of like it that way. Adds even more interest to the blankie.

J&J's Wedding Quilt

 A wedding gift for a newly married couple. I chose these colors because it was a "down the shore" wedding in New Jersey. Turns out the bridesmaids wore navy & the mother-of-the-bride wore dark turquoise -- same colors I happened to use in this quilt! Lucky.
 Each square is cut 2.5" -- I quilted "in the ditch" around each square.
Used a simple fabric for the back. Measures about 60" square. Hope they enjoy using it!
