and the dots win!

 Thanks for your feedback...I used the dots. I'm so glad I did!
I bid on these at the auction, but I didn't win. They went to the same woman that bought this quilt, so that made me happy.
I definitely need to make some more for my house!

You definitely do - they are GORGEOUS!!!!

And in front of the quilt like that, oh - I can only dream. Unfortunately in our house they would stay clean for a nano-second between cats, dogs and kids but goodness how I would love them.

Stunning :0)

For sure! What a match to the quilt the woman won previously! I love that block. It would make a striking quilt top. I'll have to give it a shot; one of these days!

LOVE the dots!!!!

Kelli said...

So I tried to comment the other day to tell you either would have been great but I'm a sucker for dots but my dialup and I were in a little bit of a disagreement, and like usual, the dialup won. So anyway....I LOVE the finished product and only wished I'd been there to bid on them. Instead, I'll have to save this post to my Things I'd really like to make SOMEDAY file and keep it as inspiration!

Suzanne said...

I really like that you have three quilts on your couch. I'm going to get there some day.

Yes, you did it right....except you should have made four!

Christy said...

I love how these turned out. Makes me wish I had a solid sofa so I could make some myself!

Lisa said...

They turned out really pretty, but I just had a thought- if you do some more, put a snowman or something in the middle?

Perfection :)

I wish I'd been at the auction - I'd have given her a run for her money. :) blessings, marlene

Thimbleanna said...

Beautiful Ms. Crazy -- LOVE the dots! Now, the big question is ... does the back of the couch always look that neat and tidy? And if the answer is yes, I can send you a big fat quilt loving cat who can fix that LOL!

Your pillows are so fresh looking. And, you are very good at taking such nice photos. Thanks for sharing all your super cool ideas.

Meredith said...

love these. would you mind telling me your steps on this? did you piece the colors, then piece the white around, then do the stipling? I'm new to this, but love these and the other ones you did. Thank you!
