I have been collecting dot fabrics without a project in mind for several months. When a friend invited me to join the Dots on Dots blog hop, I hopped right in! I have been running ideas for a house quilt around in my mind for months but nothing was coming together until I decided to do it with my dot fabric. I did a search in EQ7 for house blocks and came up with the Crazy House block pattern.
This is my coloring of the block in EQ 7. I made it with some scraps of bright dot fabrics in my stash but was not completely happy with the results.
I made another block using orange in the center and fabric closer to the colors in the EQ7 block.
Now on to the house blocks.
I found trees and houses in EQ 7 and made them with the dotty fabrics. Two of the houses had set in seams but I redrew the patterns to avoid the difficult seams. I set the Crazy House block in the center and surrounded it with the dotty trees and houses.
I have enjoyed sewing with all the dotty fabrics. Here is a chance for you to win some dots and make a quilt. Make a comment on this post and tell me which block you like the most. (To see larger images, click on the pictures.) This is what you can win…
… four fat quarters and a pinwheel quilt pattern by Maple Island Quilts.
I will draw a winner on September 20. Good Luck!
