Blogger’s Quilt Festival 2014: Circus Circus

Look at me! Entering a second quilt in the  Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side!

This quilt, Circus Circus, was finished only a few months ago now as a gift for our little nephew on his arrival to the world. The original post is here.

I first started this quilt when I was pregnant with our little girl. It sat stagnant for a while but I’m so pleased it’s completed, and I’m so in love with it. It’s perfect for baby S.

I machine quilted it on my little domestic machine, and while it was challenging because of the size, I am so happy with the finished product.
