Block #1

Today I kick off with the first block from the Anita Goodesign Pop Art collection:

My version didn’t stray too much from the original color layout – the only deviation is a change of background (they used a solid blue, I used a ombre stripe), lip color, a gold batik fabric for the hair instead of a solid yellow. Overall this block went together well, although I did find that my machine found it too large for my 5 x 7″ oval so I wound up reducing it to 95%. I’ll have to do this with the rest of the designs to make sure that they all square up when I turn them into quilt blocks.
