Fabric Tuesday 100!!! and Dottie!


FABRIC TUESDAY 100!! 

What a milestone!

Once I got my hands on a stash of the new Sarah Jane Out to Sea line, my brain exploded with ideas. I am sure you will see many of my creations, Megan is not the only one playing with this fabric!

I wanted to create a quilt that didn't make you chop up all your fabrics into tiny pieces. Most of these prints you want to keep big and show off! So I came up with this idea, giant polka dots! I love how it showcases each fabulous print.


I love how the pattern created these scattered dots (which i was going to name this pattern)



In the end I went with "Dottie." Cute?


 I had a ton of fun with the quilting, even though it took HOURS! I wanted to create "bubbles," I love them. Then I spiraled inside each dot just for something different. I really love the effect!


As much as I would love to let you all think that this may be my backyard, sadly, it isn't. It is my Mom and Dads. She does this all herself! Everything she ever plants, no matter the soil or climate grows beautifully!

My yard looks a lot like where those giant trucks that come take your garbage away, where they dump their garbage. My yard is a lot closer to that than my Mothers yard. She is so ashamed! (as am I)


The backing. I love the swirls within the dots, looks pretty neat!

Oh, I love your quilt! I've really fallen for this line of fabric, especially the mermaids at play - just ordered a bunch of it to keep on hand for stroking and maybe making something. But now I may have to order a FQ bundle! So cute!!!

Cute quilt! Dottie is a great name. Sounds like your mom and my mom have a lot in common. The green thumb and embarrassment over my lack of one!

This is adorable! I love the pattern and the way you quilted it. I have a stack of Out to Sea myself that I'll be using to make a floor quilt for the family room, but I just can't decide what pattern to use. It's great to see the fabric in use...ideas are starting to spin...
