What a lovely, scrappy quilt!! Great work!!


A job well done, Penny! I bet it was nice to know that once you had finished stitching, there was no binding to do. :-)


great quilt, penny! i am just loving the play of color on the front. really eye-catching!


Lovely Penny! The circus themed fabric is perfect.


Love the tumbler edges too, nice touch


I love the hand stitching look too!!!

It's beautiful!


It looks great Penny!


Love scrappy goodness. So fun to see your stash that you love all in one quilt.

I absolutley love this quilt. The design is so simple but so retro. It looks like something that would be draping over a 1960's chair. LOVE IT! You have once again inspired me to make another quilt. I however, don't have the patience to hand quilt it. I admire you for your hand quilting awesomeness.

This is such a fun and vibrant quilt. Love those edges! Can you tell me what thickness of cotton you used for the hand quilting?

Very appropriate! My circus daughter spends half her life tumbling...I shall have to find some of that fabric! Your quilt is so sweet.


Like it a lot!

I love it, Penny. The hand stitching is such a nice touch!Great choice in backing too:)


Cute cute - what a fun quilt - love the circus fabric on the back!!


Okay I am going to be chuckling to myself ALL NIGHT about your tumbling and circus combo. ALL night. I drove from C.Springs to Junction today and the whole time I was going through the mountains I thought: "Man, I need to go camping." which always lead to "SewTakeaHike goes camping...which lead to I wonder where she hikes...does she back pack? and then man, I need to go camping. So yes, I thought of you for a good 4/5 hours. I hope that's not creepy.

Love the scrappy tumbler...

BUT...I really came over to ask about the paper pieced asterisk pattern.. I came over via Jackie's blog (Canton Village Quiltworks)and the Two's Company Bee page...
Do you sell the asterisk pattern? If so I can't find it on your Etsy shop...

Was it a tute? I can't find it at all...please help me...I love that block..


Love how playful it looks! Great inspiration, Penny...
; )


I love the tumbler block and circus combination; it works so well together! It is so cheerful and happy, too!


Fun and funky; fabric fits the design beautifully! I am curious, was it difficult? The pattern looks easy, but looks can be deceiving.
Beautiful job!


Hi Cathrine,
I used a size 3 crochet thread.
