Every now and then, I get to design a pattern to accompany my Maths & Methods column in Make Modern. Issue 18 is now out, my column is all about make four flying geese at a time, aka no-waste flying geese. It’s such a quick method to make lots of flying geese that it meant I whipped up this baby quilt in no time at all.
Finishing at just 32″ x 32″, I designed it with the use of being a lightweight pram/stroller quilt. It’s also fat sixteenth friendly, which means I’m thinking I need to make a Liberty version now with the fat sixteenth bundles I get each month… This Mother Goose quilt was made with a rainbow of Alison Glass fabrics, and the contrast between the prints and the white background fabric really emphasises the X and O shapes created by the different blocks.
I had a funny little photo shoot for this quilt – no joke, this magpie wandered over to where I was, looked at the quilt, looked at me, and then walked away. All casual, no fear, quite curious!
