Being a part of the Cocorico Bee has been a wonderful and challenging experience for me. Every month one member chooses a theme and the hive consisting of eleven artisan quilters creates an original block for that member. This month Muriel chose Pippi Longstocking.
I've always loved Pippi but I'll admit that coming up with a design was a bit difficult. So I visited my local library and found a few books to help with the process. One had this amazing illustration and I sketched a version I thought I could reproduce in fabric.
This is my version in fabric. I decided to add Pippi's head even though she is known to sleep with hers under the covers : )
My favorite part was making the mini quilt!
Happy creating to you!
