One of my fiesta collector friends wanted a 70 inch round exploded clown for her table.

I made it -

I love it.

I did enough SITD to tack the top to the back. There is a batting. I really want to quilt like crazy circles everywhere.

I showed the person what I could do and she was enthusiastic about what I showed her but, Im a little afraid -- I dont want to it be too much. But, I think it would be really cool. Its hard to know. I think Ill do it.

Portland, you're going to have to tell us the secret to getting more than 24 hours in a day. That's the only explanation for the amount of quilts you can whip up. :-D
Love the fiesta cover!

That is fantastic! Love how colorful it is! Did you make the striped and checked fabric and then piece together? Trust your gut with the finish work--circles would be great and would reflect the circles in the Fiesta Ware.

I love myself a bright, free from quilt. That is for sure.

I did piece all of the segments. The stripes, checkers, and grids.

No pre planning or mapping for me. I just bought the fabrics, cut a 70 inch circle out of some fabric and started to make segments. I pieced them together as I went along covering the backing fabric. When it was all covered I did something I had never done b-4.

I used spray baste to baste the batting onto the back and cut away the extra batting - then pinned the top to the back an batting.

I super love it.

That is awesome!

I agree with Kensington, go with your instincts on the quilting because yours is always spot-on!

I love it too. I love the colors, and I like all of the different stripes, and how you used them. And I just love, love the purple and lime mirrored pieces. Your friend will have a talking point every time she brings it out.

Beautiful - and I'm happy to hear you tried Spray basting! I hope you found it saves you time and energy
