The original of this quilt was entered in a quilt show challenge in 2013 in which every quilt that hung in the show was donated to a charitable organization. This circus quilt was awarded 1st Place in the challenge and also won Viewer's Choice. It was donated to a Brave Hearts recipient.
As requests poured in to me from friends for a class on this quilt, I did eventually teach the class and, thus, since most of the work was done, I decided to publish the pattern.
