Spotted Squares

by Ashley
(South Burlington, Vermont)

I came up for the idea for this quilt while going through my fabric scraps. I noticed that I had quite a lot of polka dotted fabrics and decided to create a quilt incorporating all polka dotted fabrics.

I created 8" square blocks, using the polka dotted fabric as the inner square surrounded by white, or as the outer fabric with a white center. I randomly put these squares together, trying to alternate the blocks a bit, but not in any specific pattern.

I machine quilted this one, doing a loose meandering on the top. The binding is a nice green color, which brings definition to the edge. For the back, I used one of the fabrics from the front - Heather Bailey's Mod Beads in Pink, as well as a bit of the white and two of the blocks from the front to tie the whole thing together. It measures 42" x 56".

I really love the end result! It has great color and makes me very happy just looking at it!

Hi, I love your quilts but can't really see much detail in the photo. Did you attach the inner squares by applique or did you split up the outer and sew them all together?

did you applique the small inner square onto the larger square or what?

i love the effect.

This is so neat--I love the randomness of the squares within squares. It IS very pleasing!
