It is blogger's quilt festival again. I love looking at all the great quilts and stories behind them.
Here is mine to share:
When I first started thinking of a quilt for my daughter Michelle, I wanted to do something with Circles kind of a M &M's thing. Just in time, I noticed a fun quilt pattern in my quilting magazine (I wish I could link to the correct one. Sorry, I tried to find which one it was American Patchwork and Quilting 2009 probably Nov or Dec - at least the last part of the year). It had a circle on every block which was a bit much for my simpler taste but being the "maker" of the quilt, I realized I could change it up any way I wanted. So "Dot to Dot" is my version. Still filled with lots of wonderful dots (I love the dot fabric) and just a smattering of appliqued dots to make it fun!!
I hope they get lots of use and fun out of this Picnic quilt and many, many happy memories.
I LOVE dots!!
But I also learned I can venture out and make things my own way. What I see can inspire me but simplify and or change to suit me!!!
