My first Improv Pieced Block...

The block of the month for the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild, for August's meeting, is just adorable! Just Jude has a really cute Pippi Longstocking block tutorial. It reminds me nothing of Pippi lol but thats ok, its a super cute name! And my block is certainly even farther from Pippi! I did mess up the head the first time and needed to re do it, but I love how she turned out! The only thing I would do differently is to make the top of her hair a little taller... she looks at bit flat headed lol. BUT... first time? I LOVE it! <3


I made her with leftover scraps from the Star Surround QAL cutting I did this week, and I love how well it matches but it isn't too matchy matchy.

One thing I am really happy about... I would have looked at that tutorial in the past and thought about how cute it was and then passed it up because I would have thought I would not be able to pull it off. Well...humph! YES I CAN! :) Go me!
