    A bold background colour with clusters of rainbow flying geese makes this quilt a happy riot of colour. With detailed directions in two sizes, it makes a simple but stunning project than can be whipped up quickly for the living room or nursery, and lends itself well to many colourways.

    This pattern includes instruction for both a baby quilt (30" x 40") or throw quilt (51" x 68").

    If you share photos of your finished quilt on social media, I would love it if you tagged me @pennyspoolquilts (on both instagram and facebook) and used the hashtags #pennyspoolquiltspatterns and #psqflocksofcolour so I can come over and and say Hi!

    The listing pictures in blue and rainbow colours are the baby size, and both the grey and the pink versions are throw size.
