A Circus Tent to Appliqué

Here's a circus tent block to use in a child's quilt. It's fun way to use up odd bits of bright fabrics. It can be any size (6-9" or so) - on the next page you'll see a little diagram of how to lay out the template parts. The little patches are added with little contrasting stitching.

Print the templates (part 1 and 2) and enlarge them by the same amount on a copy machine.

Layout Diagram is HERE.

Template set One is here.

Template set Two is here.

If you make one of these blocks, send me a photo or a scan to show off what fabrics you used.
