Circus Quilt

When I saw the Me & My Sister Confetti fabric I was smitten.  The lively colored collection was just what I was looking for when planning a quilt for another grand niece.

The yellow, green, red, pink, orange, shades of blue and purple colors made this quilt pop. The variation of fabric which included lines, dots, squiggles, triangles added contrast.   I purchased the pattern "Circus" that featured this fabric and went to work playing with colors and layout.  When you work with such 'happy' fabric, it's such fun.

Once the quilt was pieced, I was off to Happy Wife Quilting in Carleton Place to use the long arm.  I chose a design of hearts - simple but suited for this quilt.  The Warm'n Natural batting gave a perfect weight.  The backing was pink polka dots on pink.  

I found the perfect binding at my LQS, The Pickle Dish.  Worked wonderfully with the colors.

The final product looked great.  The violet in the fabric turned out to be serendipitous as that was what she was named!
