Thank you, Judy

I was totally *blogged* down in the gobbly-gook of getting this set up, and Judy rode in to the rescue! What a sweetie!

I finished appliqueing 63 polka dot circles to background squares last night, and hope to assemble the top this weekend. The background I already know will create a design quandry when they're sewn together, so I think I'm going to have to applique more circles over the intersecting seams. We'll see. Sounds confusing -- heck, I'm confused -- but I'll post a picture when it's all done. The quilt is from Teri Christopherson's book Summertime and named "Polka Dots"! The polka dot charms were from a swap with my online friends. I did stash bust a bit as I pulled 15 or so more polka dot fabrics, but I sheepishly admit to buying a few last weekend, too. It's a sickness. I can't help it. My QuiltMobile is on auto pilot right to The Fabric Patch every Saturday morning!

Rain, glorious rain today! It's pouring right now, and has certainly cooled things off. I actually turned on the heat tonight. I hope our mountaintops are white tomorrow. I haven't seen any snow on them yet this winter.

Time for a cup of hot tea. TGIF!!!

Vicki--welcome to the stash quilt ring. I am not familiar with the "Polka Dot Quilts" but it sounds like a fun quilt. Like Evelyn said, a picture when you get a chance would be most welcome!

Vicky said...

Thanks for the warm welcome, ladies! I'm really looking forward to moving out a lot of this fabric, as well as eliminating a ton of UFOs! You all have really motivated me! I'm putting borders on the Polka Dot quilt now, so hopefully will be able to figure out the picture thing tomorrow!

I love the Polka Dot quilt. Pictures, please!!!

Welcome - can't wait to see a picture of the circles. That's another quilt on my list and I'm trying to decide if I can fuse them and skip the applique step by stitching them down when I quilt them.

Welcome Vicki - glad to have you here!

I'm a big fan of both Teri Christopherson and her sister Barbara Brandeberg. I think I have every one of their books. I'll have to check out the Polka Dot quilt - sounds like fun!
