Under the Big Top

I showed one of these blocks awhile ago....now there's two!! Because there are so many triangles in this reproduction I am swapping with a couple of online quilters and it's working out wonderful to have a wide variety of colors and prints. These blocks look a tad lopsided right now because I haven't sewn any HST sashings to the right side or the bottom. These things take time ya know?! LOL
One of the ladies mentioned the stripe fabric in the original reminded them of a circus tent, hence the name "Under the Big Top". I won't be striking it rich anytime soon naming quilts, wine or beer!


Sue at I Sew Quilts was so generous to mail me the lovely commemorative panel from the Victoria and Albert Museum which she was able to visit. It's wonderful and I tell you it feels like silk! Thank you Sue!!

For those of you that may be interested the "Tall Red House" in my last post, it is for sale and you can see the inside here. If that doesn't bring you directly to it, it is located in Goldendale, WA and is $215,000. My favorite room looks like it is way up and has stain glass windows and a crazy quilt on the bed.

  8. Love your big top blocks! What is your favorite way to do scrappy half square triangles. I haven't found a fast way to do scrappy ones. Your V & A panel is lovely! Have you done any more blind man's fancy blocks? Loved those!
