The design ...
or the fabric?
It's usually the design for me ... then I spend weeks/months hunting around trying to find just the right fabric to fit what's in my head ... which, come to think of it, is probably why I don't have much of a stash.
But, when I saw this fabric, the name of the quilt "The Circus Is Coming To Town" popped into my head ... and ... just like that ... I was off and racing!
I knew I wanted houses. I knew it was going to be a baby quilt (because my hubby requested one recently ... a baby quilt, not a baby - phew!). I knew it had to be for a boy.
|Me ... attempting props ... with quilts (badly)|
Pinterest took me to this pattern ... you'll see that my quilt is quite heavily based on it ... but without the faces, the faces freaked me out, and I messed around with the layout too.
|This Perth heat has not been good for the grass!|
|Wonky improv houses ... love this little set of three|
|This little house has very good air-conditioning|
Still ... A fun quilt! A quilt I'm happy with. An Improv quilt. A first for me!
... Circus family out-take ....
