Playing with Dots and a giveaway!!

Welcome! I hope you all have been following the Dots on Dots Blog Hop which started last week. There have been some terrific projects with more to come. 
It has been a whole lot of fun so if you missed it you can find the complete list of participants at Quilt Taffy here


A BIG Thank You goes out to Corrie, our hostess for this hop! She has done a great job of organizing and inspiring all the bloggers and of course to Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt for being the inspiration behind the hop and encouraging us all!
Like many of you, I too have a love of dots! They are so happy and cheerful. I am drawn to anything dotted so I jumped at the chance to play along on the Dots on Dots Hop.
I didn't have any trouble finding dots in my stash and/or scraps. I found pin dots in a rainbow of colors, dots in small, medium, large and extra large sizes, multi colored dots, dots with florals, dots with rings, oval dots, etc. Seems I use dots in many of my quilts and since I do use them...a lot...I'm not exactly hoarding them.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Well, you didn't come by to here me chatter...so on to my projects. 
After examining my stash, I settled with one multi-colored dotted fabric and coordinating mono-colored fabrics. I used the pattern Loving Hugs by Geta over at Geta's Quilting Studio. I had enough of the multi-colored fabric to make 12 ~ 12 1/2" blocks. (left over from the back of this quilt)







The first block was a little tricky since you are working with the bias but I got better at it the more I made. The block is so much fun to make and since I have a few baby quilts to make as special gifts, I thought this would be the perfect start. The blocks are 12" finished and the quilt finished at 38" x 50". 
I found this adorable print in my stash for the backing which I think coordinates well.  What do you all think?

I started on another baby quilt which also includes dots (the yellow is pin dots). I used the Basement Window block found in the book 5500 Quilt Block Designs and some repo 30's fabric from my stash. 

Then one day while reading blogs, I came across this quilt. Carol used 100 different dotted fabrics which got me wondering just how many different dotted fabrics were in my stash and/or scraps. 
So I started cutting 2 pieces from each dotted fabric, a 2 1/2" square and a piece for a 1 1/2" circle. I stopped when I reached 100 which didn't exhaust my supply. YIKES! 
I sewed the squares into a 10 x 10 grid, then took the other small piece and ironed on Steam a Seam II to the back. Using a template, I traced and cut out 100 ~ 1 1/2" circles. 
I randomly laid them out on top of the grid making sure they didn't match.  After I pressed them to the grid, I added a 3" Kona white border. FMQ quilted around each circle and straight lined quilted the border. 
For the backing, I used an extra large dotted fabric and the binding is a dotted stripe, both from my stash. I'm calling this A Study of Dots. 


I told you they were extra large ☺
Hope you don't mind, Carol...after all "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Thanks for being the inspiration. 
Do you know what you are left with after cutting all those small pieces? A bin full of even smaller pieces.


I had been wanting to make a Ticker Tape Quilt so I cut some 12 1/2" squares from some grey fabric and started arranging those little pieces. I FMQ around the raw edges using the quilt as you go method. 

I don't know how many I'll make or when but I really like the results. What I do know is that I'm not short of scraps to make many more. 

I did mention a giveaway, didn't I? 

Well, since so many of you commented on this pattern when I gave you a peek earlier, I am so excited to tell you that Geta is offering her Loving Hugs pattern to 2 of my visitors. This pattern is in PDF format and will be sent to you from Geta once I receive your email. 
Please hop over to Geta's Studio and take a look at her fabulous patterns!

I love your "study of dots" quilt, and I think that the ticker tape squares look awsome... if you did a few more of those and put them together they would make another fabulous baby quilt (or, if you did a lot of them, they could be a fabulous full sized quilt!). Anyway, thank you for sharing your projects, and for the chance to win the pattern!
