My latest pattern release is the Puzzled Geese Quilt Pattern. I had some fun with the naming of this one!
I was going to call it Confused Geese, that's what I've been referring to it as for the last year, since I'd first sketched it out. But as I was about to send it to the printers I just thought I'd check there wasn't one named that already. Lo and behold there were several! So back to the drawing board. After lots of brainstorming with a friend I realised Puzzled Geese would be perfect due to the central block being a Dutchman's Puzzle! I wanted something along these lines as it seems to me that whilst the large geese seemed to know where they were going, the little geese look like they have no idea lol!
I opted for straight line quilting which I think works really well. Especially like the bits where I omitted a line, I think it gives the project more depth.
There are two size options for this design included in the pattern: Baby - 40 x 46 inches; and Large Throw - 60 x 70 inches.
I've included a Foundation Pattern Piecing option for the centre block and also instructions to piece it traditionally if you prefer that technique. I've also included a small section on making scrappy binding.
Non directional prints tend to work better with this design. But if you choose directional prints you just might need to purchase more fabric.
I think this block would also work really well on a bag, or make up a couple of blocks and it's the perfect size for a cushion! Might have to make a cushion now!
