Dotty

Last summer, the shop hop on Oahu had prizes.  I won one, a jelly roll of assorted fabrics.  The theme of the fabrics was dots.  It contained 30 strips.  Most of the patterns that I wanted to use needed 40+ strips. 

I scrounged around my stash and came up with 10 more dot fabrics to add to them:

Why am I bringing this up?

My son came downstairs this morning and stated his favorite cuddling quilt was getting too short.  I guess that it was inevitable.

I was looking for a fabric collection that was good for a boy, but couldn’t find one.  Everything seemed too girly.  I then remembered about the fabric I won.

I will be making Pineapple Surprises from the book "Jelly Roll Quilts”.  I ordered some tan Moda Bella Solids for the background.

Hopefully this quilt will be long enough for him for a while.
