I asked for this little girl block, as I hope to make a quilt for me eldest daughter's bed. I first saw these blocks made in the Bee Blessed bee, and knew instantly that I wanted to make a quilt like this myself. She is called Pippi Longstocking after the red headed character in the children's story book.
So the usually mundane activity of checking the post every day, has been super exciting, as little parcels keep dropping through the door.
Here are some of the Pippi blocks I have received so far.
This one has an adventurous story to tell. The package was mangled by the post office, and arrived in a plastic bag, which said 'SORRY' on the front, and Pippi's legs were sticking out. Luckily when we retrieved her, she was fine, just a little dirty from splashing in puddles!
Then there was a great surprise when I received this one, as it was made by Tracy my lovely sister 'not-in-law', she follows my blog, and so made a block for me..... I was thrilled to bits,
There are a few more blocks still to be made, and several that I know of are still en route.... but it will be very exciting when I can finally put this quilt top together. Massive thanks to everyone who has made a block for me, I love each and everyone of of them, and the colours and fabrics are so varied. It's going to be lovely.
