Default Boogie Woogie Sheep

I drafted this sheep to make a 14 inch block and I want to do them in funky colours. It isn't perfect but I am going to see if the next block turns out to be easier. Which colour would you do the head in with this crazy purple print? The mauve or the black?image.jpeg

Cute! Love the legs! Mauve head with black ears and nose. Or do you have something close to the light dots in the purple? To me it looks like a mint green. That could be cute!

I do have a green in the exact shade of the dots but I thought it was a bit too bright.image.jpeg

If you're going to do a whole quilt with these blocks, I would keep all the heads in black.

Really cute.

It depends if you want them to be funky or not. Myself, I would probably stick with mostly darker colors for the head of the sheep but I think the mauve is much better than that screaming green. This is a really cute sheep! Great design.

I'm weird but I would do a lavender sheep with the printed head. I love the idea of keeping all the heads dark or black prints.

I agree that the heads should all be the same colour.

i like the black heads also, but there needs to be enough contrast between head and body so you can see it at a glance. Love the legs
