Well I’m back home from my whistle stop hop across the Irish Sea and back!

I will have pictures to show for it tomorrow, but in the meantime, it is MARCH! Which means a new block of the month for Bee Blessed.

Pippi Longstocking Block for Bee Blessed Feb14

Yes, Pippi Longstocking is making a return visit.  I designed this block 2 years ago and Bee Blessed members and contributors did a sterling job making Pippi and Wonky House blocks.  This quilt was gifted to a teenage girl struggling with M.E.

Bee Blessed Pippi Longstocking Quilt June12

Sarah had the genius idea of alternating February’s heart blocks with Pippi blocks, which I think will make one beautiful and special quilt.

I know some of you are a bit nervous about this block and having a go at improv piecing!  But all I would say is, have a go anyway and see what happens!  Nothing ventured, nothing gained!  Grasp the Nettle!  Carpe Diem!  etc. etc. !

You can find Sarah’s instructions here and the link to the tutorial is here.  Thank you for getting your big girl pants on and having a go at Pippi!
