This lovely patchwork drawstring bag by Helen Philipps uses of vintage children room circus charm, just what we had in mind with the Circus series. The collection looks lovely combined with spots and stripes.

Tilda Australia runs a Tilda Club where you get a lovely project made by one of Australia’s finest designers and quilters every two months. The currant project is this lovely Summer Rose iPad Pouch in blue Circus fabrics by Lauren @mollyandmama.
This lovely Gypsy Lane Quilt is made by Aqua Paisley with Circus Fabrics.
The quilt is inspired by a branch of her family tree that is a bit of a mystery: Gypsy Lane – The Story Behind the Quilt.
The back of the quilt is beautiful with random pieces of fabric.
We love how the green Circus fabric look on this quilt. The design required placing 8 elephant motives just right in a diagonal line in a pattern program, so that the last elephant pours coffee into the cup of the monkey sitting on the back of the first elephant.
Really tricky to get right, but so much fun when it worked.
Have a great weekend!
