So, I am very anxious to see what everyone thinks... My partner, Dearbluebird received on Saturday according to the USPS, but I haven't heard from her yet, so I decided I would post pics I have of the quilt I sent her!

Her theme was Circus Side Show Acts, like the Strong Man. And she likes more natural tones so I came up with this quilt based off real acts with the Strong Man as the focus!


This is what is behind the Strong Man: I freezer stenciled the word circus in a circus font:


A Close Up of the Felt Strong Man:


The Back:


A Close Up of the Label:


I hope you all like it! It's the first one I've ever made and really thought it came out well! I sure hope Dearbluebird doesn't mind I posted photos! I was just TOOO anxious and I haven't heard from her since I sent... Probably a busy Holiday weekend!

The pictures I colored with colored pencil lightly after printing on photo fabric with my printer! All the pictures were real acts from the early 1900's!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

CMB I cannot fathom how you'd give away to someone else a quilt that clearly intended for ME.

LOL. Wonderful job. Expect to be pinned and wisted to death now, ha!
