I am finishing up several projects that have been in the works for a few months. My quilt guild sponsored a sew in one weekend and we were challenged to make a quilt using charm squares. I was drawn to a pack of Dottie Polka Dots from Moda Fabrics.
I used a quilt pattern from 3 Times the Charm – Book Two by Me and My Sister Designs. This is a great book filled with adorable quilt patterns! I have made several baby quilts using the patterns in this book. Although the patterns work well for charm packs, I’ve also made a quilt or two using scraps from my stash.
By the time I got around to making my binding, most of the Moda Dottie Polka Dot fabrics were sold out at my favorite quilt shop. BUT I did find a nice black and white polka dot design from Riley Blake Fabrics. I think the black and white binding frames the quilt and adds nice contrast to all the bright colors.
I used an aqua and white polka dot fabric for the quilt back and I am very happy with the results! I always send my quilts to a local long arm expert, Ms. JM. She does an incredible job and here is a close up of her work.
This was a fast, fun and easy quilting project. If you are new to quilting, this book would be a nice resource to help you get started on your quilting journey.
