Fun Under the Big Top with Bailey by Maude Ashbury!

There are few things more whimsical than the circus and we've all been so tickled to see more and more circus themed collections hitting the market! Michael Miller has definitely been on top of this trend just like they ALWAYS ARE! But we are totally smitten with this new grouping called Bailey by Maude Ashbury for Blend Fabrics! Everything from the elephants to the big tops and stripes and balloons in between, these fabrics are absolutely darling! Perfect for creating a nursery or little ones bedroom! It would even be precious as clothing! Cute rompers, jumpers and skirts for the girls...shorts, ties and button ups for the boys! TOO CUTE.
Pam got inspired and whipped up this awesome quilt real quick and its absolutely to die for!! I LOVE the ticket print she used for the border! It really makes the whole thing pop! When thinking of a way to use that favorite new collection, don't rule out designing something YOURSELF! It's fairly simple if you keep your blocks big and easy...also, graph paper is your very best friend!!
But if you're just feeling like making a quick quilt this weekend, grab the FREE PATTERN designed for this collection and get to sewing!! I really like the inner pennant border! Very whimsical and still, not very difficult at all! Wouldn't this make a wonderful baby shower gift?? Especially if you paired it with a few handmade blocks made with your left over fabrics!
(I found a GREAT TUTORIAL for baby blocks over on Sew Like My Mom!)
Bring the charm of the circus into your little one's life with Bailey!! And share your projects with us!
