When I came across this pattern several years ago, I was enthralled.
I didn't particularly want to make a quilt from it, so decided to make it the featured design on a schoolback-pack for my young grand-daughter.
It's so very versatile, that it could be used for anything, really.
I had great fun making it, especially when I got round to embellishing the costumes: I embroidered designs on them all and added bead 'necklaces' on some. With a bit of imagination, you could create all sorts of other figures.
The back-pack is well aged now and has been passed down, over the years, to other grand-children and never fails to elicit compliments, even from strangers.
