Bee Blessed March Block

For the past few months of Bee Blessed we've been choosing our own blocks and Judith (and friends) have been making sampler quilts of our contributions.  Not this month!  She's spicing it up with a little Pippi Longstocking block.

This was a great block for me as I am getting more and more interested in improvisational piecing.


I tried to make her look a bit like I would like to look.  She has dark brown hair with whisps of "blonde" that are really grey.  I would love, love, love to have a dress made from this gorgeous fabric and would absolutely adore tights of yellow polka dots.  Now, would I ever dare to wear it all outside at once?  Most likely no.  But each piece would make me really happy on its own.

She used to have shoes :(  They were lost in the squaring of the center block to 8 1/2 inches square.  That's OK.  I would rather be barefoot anyway!

Hope you like her Judith!

I like her! And for sure - yellow polka dot stockings would be so fun - maybe they even exist somewhere in real life?? Great block - she looks like she's dancing!

Sheila said...

Was just about to say the same, she is moving! I pretty much lost the shoes on my Pippi block too, maybe she should have boots!

I like her, esp the way her hair obviously is under control and would nEVER go in a direction other than she wants it too!! x

I think she kicked off her shoes so she could dance better - maybe on the grass at a festival?!! Great block!
