"Under the Big Top" is off being quilted. I didn't quite get 25 blocks made because I ran out of one of the star fabrics - common story I'm sure. At 20 blocks it is a big quilt.

Inspired by this antique quilt owned by Gai
and by a front cover quilt from Kathie at Inspired by Antique Quilts I sewed and cut and pieced and trimmed to make these
which go together like this:

I have never actually eaten "Bubble and Squeak" but I understand it is a made from leftovers. That describes this quilt to a T.
