Circus Baby Quilt Patterns Using Hawaiian Applique

By: Carolyn Wainscott for FaveQuilts.com

Learn how to make fast baby quilt patterns with circus themes using a Hawaiian applique method. With this applique technique, you'll cut out an elephant or carrousel applique that covers the entire quilt top and fuse it to a plain background. Add some decorative stitching around the edges to secure the applique, and you'll be done with your quilt in just a few hours!
