Mother Goose Quilt Blocks 3 & 4

The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe and Hey Didddle Diddle — two more blocks for this quilt, copied from “The Very Young Mother Goose.” These are a lot of fun and go quickly using Crayola crayons and 2 strands of black DMC. On ebay I found a big piece of vintage 36″ wide flannel with a Mother Goose theme which I am going to use for the back of the quilt. It’s so cute, very soft, and the Old Woman in the Shoe looks a lot like my block.

UPDATE:  I decided to stitch the verses around the blocks, which you can see in a later post.


There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do;
She gave them some broth without any bread,
And whipped them all soundly, and put them to bed.


Hey! diddle, diddle! The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
