Hello all you Quilt Story lovers! Isn't this blog the best? I always get excited when I see a new post pop up in my google reader. I'm not sure when my love for polka dots started, but I'm pretty sure it got worse (better?) when my daughter Ruby was born. Do you realize how many cute polka dot things are out there for little girls?!
Her 1st birthday party was a polka dot party, complete with polka dot tshirts for all the guests. (those were some of my very first appliques!)
(And now she's four!)
But anyway ... back to the quilt! Of course that's why you're here. I was inspired by Allison's January quilt and knew I wanted to make one for myself. But I didn't exactly know what colors I wanted. I started looking through my stash and realized the main common denominator was polka dots!
So that's really all the story behind this quilt... I gathered all my polka dot fabric and started cutting. I'll admit, I did buy a few extra to add to the quilt, but most of this was from my stash.
I believe there are at least 51 different fabrics in this quilt. If you care to count, maybe you can correct me if I'm wrong! :)
I always have a hard time getting just the right angle.
|are you glad I went with the multi-colored stripe? I am. The back is a clearance sheet from Target (I know all love Target). Which means I still have the fitted sheet to use for another quilt. (yay!)|
If you'd like to read more about this quilt and all my other projects, please stop by my blog sometime! Oh -- and -- I'm trying to decide what to name this quilt. I haven't ever named my quilts before but I feel like this one needs a name. Any suggestions? Comment here with your idea! (If I choose your suggestion, I'll send you a surprise of some sort -- probably fabric). xo! SewSara
