Send in the Clowns

I had an idea that I wanted to make a string quilt and I looked at a lot of pictures, then I thought… well I would do it a little differently. This quilt started to remind me of a wonderful day I shared with friends that was fun and beautiful. Then clowns came and it was fabulous. So this quilt is joy, praise, love and dancing. It started quite innocently with me wanting to make a string quilt star in the center. I think that crazy red polka dot started the party. Look for the party pennants, and the pinwheels. The curves framing the center are wedding ring pieces that I tried to figure out how to piece on top. It made more sense to applique them on.
