Circus Tent Quilt Complete

This one is finished! The quilting process took a little longer as I used masking tape as a guide for my quilting which took a while to stick around all the hexagons. It gave me even spacing between the piecing seams and my quilting. I needed to quilt within 10" according to my batting so I've left the quilting fairly open with the largest area being about 7".

The back shows the quilting lines even better. I selected a white thread so that it would blend in best on the animal print fabric and lightly contrast with the "circus tents".

The binding is the same dark patterned fabric as the blue hexagon which gave a nice contrast with the green back and complimented all the colours on the front. I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out. I was hoping to get it done in a week, but 2 weeks is a pretty good effort to turn out a completed quilt! :)
