Circus Rings

Amy had selected the fabrics back in December when the whole family was in Richmond. We'd driven over to Quilting Adventures, Amy and Sherry and I, and had fun together starting with the print and then adding coordinates. I didn't know then what block I was going to make but I was definitely thinking a pinwheel of some sort.

The animals were zoo animals, but I couldn't stop thinking circus. I guess it was the circles. And the addition of the prairie points (my first ones ever) underscored the circus idea. When it was time to do the quilting, I decided to echo the circles from the print, thinking of circus rings.  You can see it close up by clicking on the photo.

Today was Amy's shower. And finally I got to share it with her. And with you.

I love this quilt. And I love the little guy who will use it. In just about two months.

The colourcombo is a bit different than the "usual" quilts if you get what I mean. I love it! Like the pattern a lot too:) Now it's just waiting for someone to start drooling on it *lol*

A truly stunning piece of handiwork. Lucky litle person who will snuggle under it. Now how are you going to avoid cousin rivalry?
