dots on dots Blog Hop


I am so thankful to be a part of this blog hop. Thank you Madame Samm over at Sew We Quilt for being such a great inspiration to so many. Thank you also to Corrie over at Quilt Taffy for hosting this hop. We thank both of you for bring us all together in our love of dots. 

Right after I signed up to be a part of this blog hop I started thinking about what I wanted to make. It took me about 5 minutes. HA HA! I love dots, I love hexies, and I love rainbows. I put all three together and came up with this beauty. I wished I had taken a picture of all the hexies stacked up. I made 42 hexies. I then hand sew them all together in rows. I pinned them down and machine sewed them to a piece of white Kona. 

I then auditioned all kinds of dot fabric for the binding. I had four pieces out until I decided on a piece of black with dots. Here it is all bound. I love how the black corrals them all together. 

This is the back. I added corner hanging triangles so that I can put it on my wall. I even had fun drawing on the back to add a label. 

Thank you for stopping by. Please take some time to stop by the other blogs on today's hop. You will love everybody's creations. If you have missed any of the blogs go back and take a look. Also there is one more day left so don't forget about hopping tomorrow.
