Doing the happy dance!! Today is my day on the Dots on Dots blog tour. I am excited to share my dots on dots block!
First up - a block of 4 pinwheel blocks...
Well, actually, this block is no where near the 101/2 inch size requested for the hop.....
It is actually a mini-quilt that I added to my actual block which I then turned into a mini-quilt - follow all of that?
Here is my actual entry for the blog hop:
I call this mini - Quilt on Quilt, Dots on Dots. All the fabric is from my stash - I just love the red fabric with the dots. Wonder if you can get a real sewing machine this color??????
My favorite part about quilting is the creative process. I started off with the idea of making a paper pieced sewing machine block (googled to find one) but I didn't like the way the dot fabric was looking - cut the dots apart in odd places. So I decided to flip the pattern over, trace it and turned it into a simple applique!
Instead of a mini-quilt, you could surround the block with spool blocks - all the rage at the moment!
This was so much fun to create and will proudly hang in my sewing room.
