Baby Quilt ~ Scattered Dots

 
Will you believe I do other things besides complaining about the weather?  Actually, the drought has taken me from the fields and given me time to quilt more this summer.

This is a baby quilt made from a pattern tutorial on Amy's blog, www.duringquiettime.blogspot.com .  You may remember, I made a doll quilt by the same pattern.  For the baby quilt I simply made the strips longer and wider and the dots larger.  The binding is made from pieces of fabric like the dots.

Now I think I'll let the frames stand empty for a while and get out some WIP things, such as a topsy-turvy doll and a crochet project, maybe even another apron.  Can't let this old mind go idle!

  5. This one is so sweet. I'm partial to dots. Hope you got some good rains.
    We did down here in the valley. So much so we have tons of toad stools dotting the yard.

  6. Thought I'd pop back over and thank you for the sweet words on mine.. I was thinking of you when I wrote the post. And praying you got some rain.. See I complain alot and sometimes without reason.. You have plenty of reason, but we all do have our own share of problems..I will put some pics up of my quilts soon..
