You might recall that I had a request to recreate my original Spotted Squares quilt in a twin sized version. It’s taken a little while to get this finished (twin sized quilts are larger than I realized!), but I’m pleased to say that it’s finally done!
There are a total of 108 blocks in this quilt, and the printed fabrics are each some form of a polka dot (a very loose interpretation of a polka dot, just to make it a bit more interesting!). I’ve always loved this design, and I think this quilt is another winner… and it’s fun to see it in a larger version!
For the backing, I went with a lovely shade of blue – a Moda Bella solid in Mist, to be exact – and I added in fun strip of blocks outlined in white.
The binding is Kona Coal, with a tiny pieced section using Amy Butler’s Sunspots in green. I really love the dark binding – I think it makes the colors on the front really pop, and of course I just love how it looks with the solid blue backing.
After washing, it shrunk down to a near perfect twin sized quilt – measuring about 65″ x 87″ or so. It’s all packaged up and it’s been mailed off to meet it’s new owner, a little girl just moving into her big girl bed. I certainly hope she will love it for years to come!

Blocks are 8.25″ square. I did 9 blocks across by 12 blocks, for a total of 108 blocks. This worked out to a nearly perfect twin sized quilt.
Unrelated, but maybe you can help?… I’ll be going out to California soon (San Diego area) and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for cool places to visit (or maybe great fabric shops I shouldn’t pass up!). I’d also love to take some time to drive along the coast and maybe see a few other cities/towns… anyone know of any great spots or cool places to stay? Thanks!!
