Dots on Dots Blog Hop




Today's my day for the blog hop.  A special Thank You to Corrie of Quilt Taffy and Madame Samm of Sew WE Quilt! for hosting it.  To see the full blog hop schedule, click on the dots on dots logo on Corrie's blog, here or on my sidebar.

I Love Dots!

I made a quilt a few years ago using some black with white dots fabric I'd been given and was really happy with the results.  So for the Hop I purchased more black dots fabric as well as green dots and orange dots fabric.  I thought they'd go good with some 'Fall' embroidery.  Here are the individual blocks:







This is the wall hanging I made with the blocks.  It's 41 x 17 inches.  I had to rearrange some furniture to find wall space long enough to hang it.



Here's another block:




It was originally going to be a table runner.


Boring!  And my table always has my sewing machine and stuff on it so I made it into a pillow instead.



 So that's it for me.  Be sure to visit the others listed below to see more 'Dots on Dots'!












Hope you have a great day.
