This was intended to be a baby quilt but now I'm not so sure. I think I want it.
Each dot is made from a different polka dot fabric and is made using the "6 minute circle" method. It's such a great technique, I can't recommend it enough if you want pieced circles (as opposed to hand or machine appliqued).
Each circle has a 4" diameter and is pieced into the center of an 8" square.
A pieced back! I haven't really been into those lately, mostly because I haven't felt like putting additional work in. Is that bad? Well I'm pleased with this one. It was somewhat improvised after Alissa gave a nice talk about improv-ing at the last LAMQG meeting. I have to say though, too much improv makes my head hurt. I like to have a plan of action, complete with measurements, from the get-go. So after a few of these blocks were sewn and laid out, I broke out the tape measure to figure out exactly how I would fill in the gaps.
