Circus Patchwork Baby Quilt

Happy Jubilee Monday!

Today I want to share with you a patchwork baby quilt that I completed this week.

It was the same pattern as the nautical patchwork baby quilt that I made earlier this year...

It was a special order from a lovely customer who had chosen her own fabrics to co-ordinate with her baby's nursery.
And what a lovely choice!
Here are the gorgeous fabrics for the patchwork top including a Cath Kidston Circus fabric....

I fussy cut the circus fabric to make the most of the pattern..

I think Mum, Dad and Baby will have such fun spotting the different animals....

As well as keeping baby snuggly and warm....

I packed it up and posted it to my customer. I was so glad to receive an email from her saying she thought it was lovely too.....and a perfect fit for her baby's cot....she very kindly sent me a photo.....

Doesn't it just look gorgeous with those pretty cushions and sweet little softies?

Yesterday whilst it was raining, I worked a bit more on my Fractured Pinwheels Quilt - the one with the pretty Lakehouse strawberry and rosebud fabrics? I'm hoping to have some photos to share with you next time...

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the Jubilee celebrations :) Go away rain!!

See you soon,

Maggie xx


  1. Wow, what a pretty quilts you make!
    I've never quilted in my live so it all looks
    like abracadabra to me, but I love all those
    pretty cottons and patterns and how they work
    together. Maybe one day I can learn how to do it
    Love, Mirjam.

  2. Beautiful quilts Maggie, my favourite is the top one the colours are lovely. I would love to be able to make something like it, but I'm not much use with a sewing machine. :)

  3. Oh, Maggie! It's LOVELY! I like that CK circus print very much!
    I thought of the queen yesterday and it made me happy that her country honors her and she keeps working hard. So refreshing.

  4. They are both so beautiful. I love the bright colours in the first one, it really caught my eye, but the second one looked so good in the dark wood cot - you're very clever xx

  5. Love that! The way you framed the animals in the squares is perfect.

  6. Wow Maggie, both the quilts are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! Truly beautiful and unique (like babies themselves!!) xx


I always love to hear from you!
