Quilt pattern: Festive Flocks

I’m always excited when I see one of my quilts in a magazine for the first time. I tend to be a little unsure about my work when I send it off… does it look OK? Will the editor be happy with it? Festive Flocks – out now in the latest issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine – is no exception. I’ve never made a quilt that’s so white before (hello, bleached batting!), and I just wasn’t sure how well it would photograph. But as usual, the team at LPQ have done an incredible styling job!

'Wreath' pattern from Geometriquilt (based on Sunday sketch #80)

You can see two-thirds of the quilt on the wall (it has 9 big circular blocks in total), plus a snippet of a mini in the reverse colourway on the bed (white arrows on a red background).

Do you recognise the pattern? Festive Flocks is based on Sunday sketch #80, which I posted back in early January.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #80-1

It’s mostly squares and half-square triangles, so the quilt top comes together really quickly. I used a mix of bright red fabrics from the Basics and Smitten collections by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics. They mix and match so easily, and look so sharp and vibrant!

This issue of LPQ has a Christmassy theme, mixed with some Scandinavian style. Check out the mittens on the cover!!!
