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!
The Circus collection comes with lovely new paper piece appliqué shapes. A cute elephant and a Circus star.
See how you make Paper Piece appliqué here.
Among the Tilda news this season is this fresh and playful Circus Quilt pattern. It has a classic feel but the bright and happy colors and quirky circus inspired motives makes it modern and fun.
Motives like circus wagons with button wheels, stars and striped circus tents makes this quilt perfect for a kids room.
Zeriano made this awesome getaway bag in Circus fabrics. The fresh 50’s look with the striped bag handles works perfectly with this collection.
