Anniversary Quilt

This is a new project, an Anniversary quilt for my husband.  It needs to be finished by July 9th, or it will have to be changed to a Birthday quilt!   We both love Cirque du Soleil, so the quilt squares will all be appliqued with various images inspired by Le Cirque.  I am drawing these images from my memory and imagination onto the back of the fusible material, so each one will be different.  I have a long way to go as this is going to be a big quilt.  


  1. This is wonderful! I also love Cirque, I have seen every show that has come to Portland. I can hardly wait to see the finished quilt, hoping you will share it with the QA list.

    Somehow I never would have thought to use batiks for this, but they are perfect.

  2. Thank you Andee! I am a little nervous at the prospect of such a big quilt, imagining myself swallowed by the layers as I try to push it all through the machine. I'll holler if I get stuck, and I'll definitely share the finished quilt with the list.
