After making the Lombard Street quilt and sending it off to the shop where I’ll be teaching that pattern, I decided to make a little one. (The pattern includes three sizes.)
I cut the triangles from my 3-1/2 inch scraps, and had almost enough scraps to cut all 200 triangles–very little yardage was used up for this part of the process.
I decided on purple for the background and made a few test blocks. Looking at the test blocks, I particularly liked the triangle with the one big dot in the middle. I also decided these triangles would look better with a light grey background, so naturally I had to make another quilt to use that purple background fabric 😉
I love dotted fabric, so I looked through my stash,finding about 30 different fabrics with dots of some kind. I cut another 200 triangles and here are the sample blocks. Aren’t they cute? More later…
Thanks, Peggy! You’re up early if you’re in North America!
Hi Zippy. For over 45 years I got up at 4:00 a.m. for work. Now that I am retired I sleep in until 6:30 a.m. 🙂
I also love dotted fabric.
These dotted triangles are so cute and festive.
I liked the purple background on both, but I wouldn’t want to take away your need to buy fabric. And yes, the dots are fun.
Definitely joining the crowd for the purple background and dots! Very festive!
Thanks. It’s hard to get enough dots 😀
Love the polka dots!
