Roly Poly Circus Quilt

I haven't been doing alot of quilting lately. With school, end of summer vacation, family trips and my business quilting has been put on the back burner. I hope in the next week to get the ball rolling again. Although I can't quilt, it has been fun posting quilts I have completed. My Roly Poly Circus Quilt is one of my favorites. I took this class about 6 years ago at my LQS. I enjoyed every minute of the hand embroidery and hand quilting!!

What a surprise this quilt is made in with red fabric and polka-dots (sarcasm noted!). I should have seen my obsession way back then. I knew I wanted this quilt to be simple. I wanted the embroidery to be the focus. Working with only 4 fabrics was fun, I love how they repeat themselves. I wanted to find the perfect border and searching for a few months really paid off, I love it.




I love this little doggy with his balloon.




My two boys love the crocodile and his teeth!


I love his trunk and tusks.

That quilt is awesome. I love hand embroidery and have a bunch of patterns I would love to use in a quilt. What a great idea. I love the colors. Red, white and black are my favorite. Great job!
