Mother Goose & Friends

Yippee! My new quilts, using the fabric I designed for P&B Textiles, will debut tomorrow as Quilt Market kicks off! I had so much fun making quilts using the Mother Goose & Friends fabric. Probably the first thing that hit me when I got the fabric was... "Yikes! You mean I have to CUT this?!!!" I hated to do it... but I also loved being able to create quilts with the fabric. Above is the quilt that P&B is using to market the fabric line; the fabric has 26 different pieces in it, ranging from scatter prints to graceful border prints to tone-on-tones to a pre-printed panel with eight nursery rhymes illustrated on it. Although this is billed as a juvenile print line, most of the fabrics in it are multi-dimensional and can be used in a variety of settings. You'll be seeing more of those ideas in the future -- which is what is so great about a blog: it's a fast way to post photos, ideas, tips, etc. Life is great, isn't it?!

  1. I love this quilt and bought the fabric years ago! I'm ready to make a baby quilt now. Are the instructions still available?

    1. We don't have a pattern for this particular quilt. If there used to be one available from the fabric company, I'm not sure. Sorry I couldn't be more help!

  2. Hello all!

    I'm a little late to the conversation, but does anyone know where to get all the fabric necessary for this quilt? I'm looking to make this as a wedding gift for my best friend. Any leads are greatly appreciated!

    Regards,
    Denielle

    1. Did you get the pattern directions to make the mother goose quilt using the panel? If you did I was wondering if you would be so kind in sharing it with me. A family member passed down the fabric to me but couldn’t find the pattern. You help would be much appreciated.
      Thank you
