Under The Big Top Nursery Set

I am pleased to announce the release of a pattern for a circus themed nursery set entitled Under The Big Top.
Circles, triangles, squares and diamonds are all used to create this colourful quilt.
  The pattern includes the spiral and star quilting motifs used in this sample.

 The outer border is simply quilted with a curved line dotted with stars.

To give credit where due...we all know I had help with the photo shoot. You may recognize the tail in this one...
The ninja cat was everywhere. You aren't fooling anyone, Polly - we can see those pointy little ears!
Polly would get shooed out of the room and by the time I was back behind the camera, she was back in front of it.  
The pattern also includes instructions for the "big top" canopy to hang over the crib so you can complete your nursery in a circus theme.
 The quilt is a generous 46" x 54".
As always, I owe a big thank you to pattern editor Cheryl Coville for her help (and Polly sends a purr to Cheryl's helper, Cassie).   The pattern is available as an instant download here on Craftsy.


  1. I love the colours in this quilt. Winter days need bright fabrics!

  2. Oh, that Polly! I love the quilt and the canopy, but I think I love the photo of Polly peeking over the top of the quilt even more.
