Spots everywhere!

I just finished this quilt yesterday and it’s become an instant favorite!

If you remember, I came up with this quilt idea when going through my fabric scraps. I realized I had quite a lot of polka dotted fabrics and decided that would be the theme of this quilt. I wasn’t so strict about the polka dotted theme – anything that reminded me of a polka dot was included… including Amy Butler’s Martini Dots, and Joel Dewberry’s Chestnuts and Chestnut Branches.

It was fun to include so many different designers and so many bright colors. It makes me happy just looking at it!

I opted for a little pop of green in the binding, and used Amy Butler’s Seeds in Okra. I really like the color that brings to the edge.

Nice weather we’re having, eh? You can tell winter’s on its way. Not sure how many more times I can convince Morgan to go outside to hold up my quilts for photos!

    it’s perfect. I REALLY like this one, especially how the inner squares are all different sizes.

    Love, love, love this quilt. Is anything better than polka dots? Other than a scrappy quilt that works so well together? The pieced back has a lot of interest too. Great job.

    How are you ever going to top this?!
    And yes, far too cold to be taking pics outside now that it’s November, not to mention the fact that the wind and gray sky detract from your beautiful creations.

    Dare I ask why you were posting so early in the morning??
    And on a side note, I’m so glad I didn’t have to worry about Joe dying throughout the whole episode — thanks for saving me the suspense!

    Great choice on the binding fabric. I have used that fabric on a couple projects too. It really frames the quilt blocks. I love how quilt turned out too – you must be so proud!

    This is a great design – it really shows off the patterns, and the white is great contrast.

    Love this quilt ! It is so cheerful ! As well as, the rest of your designs ! Thanks for the inspiration ! I haven’t been quilting long, and I was wondering if you could provide some measurements for the blocks in “Spots Everywhere”…what size are the center squares and the completed block. Am I right to think it is a wonky log cabin pattern ? Thanks ! Kimber

    Hi,
    I’m interested in your quilts, how much are they? I don’t see where you can order them.

    Thanks

    Ashley, was this a pattern, or from your quilting head? What size square did you start off with? I am trying to eye ball yours, I am making a quilt for my three year old. Mine seem so much smaller than yours. I wanted to make it all from fat quarters. Will that be possible?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
