It seems I have become a very intermittent blogger! I've been so busy making, writing patterns and social media that my blogging has taken a bit of a back seat. Sooooo what that means is that we have loads to catch up on!!
Let's start with my Apples and Pears Quilt Pattern. I wrote this for my November pattern release. It's got four options, 2 large and 2 small, each with one for beginners and then a more advanced option!
I made the large advanced version. The only thing that makes it more advanced than beginners is that it has flying geese in it.
The design is based on a set of stairs. When I was a little girl, at bed time my mum always used to say ‘up the apples and pears’, which is cockney slang for stairs. We aren’t even from London, go figure lol! Anyhow that's how it got it's name.
The quilt is strip pieced, apart from the geese so it comes together quite quickly.
Two more versions below show both smaller options. The grey and blue one is the simple version with no flying geese, made by Amanda. And the one on the right is with the flying geese and is made be Martine.
