New Project??

Hello Everyone,

I know we all are working on multiple projects at any given time. I am just like everyone else. It seems like I am always thinking ahead.

I have been collecting dotty fabric for quite some time now. It appears that I now have them in every color way possible.


This is just a glimpse into what I have in my stash.


Darks, lights, different color backgrounds from red to blue. Saved up for one special project.


The cover quilt on this Spring, 2006 issue of Quilts and More.


It is called Dotty Stars and is by Piece O Cake designs. I just love it!!


You can really see the variations in the background colors here. What do you think of this project?? I know I may not get to it in the immediate future. But I will get to it! In the meantime, I can continue to add to the dots in my collection.

And since I just got back from the new AQS show in Lancaster, I had no problem in adding to my stash while there. There will be more on that in some posts later this week. Now I just have to find a place to put it all!!


Until Next Time...

Merete said...

The quilt is beautiful, I love all the different colours. And with all the wonderful fabrics you have collected, yours will be just as beautiful :o) Looking forward to see it!
Wishing you a wonderful Easter!
Hugs, Merete

Stephanie said...

Polka dot stash envy! I LOVE spots and dots and my stash is no where near what you have. That will be a fantastic quilt.

Terry said...

Wow! Look at all those lovely dotty fabrics! It's going to be a great quilt! :0)

Grazia said...

A great stash of dotty fabrics...I can't wait to admire your fantastic quilt!
Happy easter..
Grazia :)

Pat said...

Oh, darn...wish I knew you were in Lancaster, too. I was there from Wednesday until Friday. I had a great time!

Riel Nason said...

Love all those dots, especially the dots on a black background. Should make a striking quilt!

Melinda said...

I have a lot of dots but you have me beat. My guild is exchanging 10 inch squares of dots for the next three months. A set is 12 squares and I am planning on doing 3 sets each month to add more variety to my dotty stash. I can't wait.

Lisa said...

Ooooh... is yours going to have a black background instead of white? I love it either way. And I am totally jealous of those polka dots.

I am working on my big wheels/candy-looking-circles quilt, which was inspired by you, and I should have pictures up soon.

Carol said...

Look at all those dots...how fun! That pattern is just the most perfect for your dotty stash!

Teresa said...

Your stash is so bright and fresh and just screams SPRING!!! I think the quilt is a good one for your stash. I have to say your hexagons inspire me and I love your organization.

Barbara said...

I have always loved this quilt - even with all the bright colors, it still has a nice neat and clean appearance. The entire pattern with directions is a free download on APQ :

Rumi said...

What great dotty fabrics you have! I am really liking the pattern you chose too.

karenfae said...

you sure have a lot of dots and will be able to make something fantastic with them. The show in PA must have been great and looking forward to seeing photos and your views on the show.

I don't think I have that issue ~ but it's one of my favorite magazines. Love all the dots. Just can't resist them!

wishes, true and kind said...

I think that looks like a worthy project for all your wonderful dots!

Lori said...

This Project looks like Fun!!!

Thimbleanna said...

Wow! That's a lot of dotty fabric!!! I too, love that quilt! But as your blog friend, I must encourage you to finish your other UFO's before you start on it. There, now I feel better. Go start it anyway ROFLOL!!!

Jewel said...

That is gonna be awesome! Dots are faves of mine as well.

Caro said...

Great project for dots. Wouldn't it be great to turn the stars on the diagonal?

Claudia said...

I can't wait until you get to this! I'll be living vicarously through your dot adventure!

Anonymous said...

Love the quilt-love the dots-love the magazine. I think I've tried them all at this point and keep going back to this one.

kpaints said...

That is the perfect pattern for your fabric! Way to go!

Meredith said...

Great fabric lovely quilt. Did you enjoy the show?

Laura said...

That looks like a great project! I have been collecting dot fabrics too and have yet to decide on a specific project for them, but they sure are fun to look at in the meantime!

julieQ said...

We are so alike! I have the polka dots collection too...and that magazine is tucked into the basket of polka dot fabrics!

Exuberant Color said...

Collecting the dots is just as much fun as making the quilt. I have lots of leftover pieces from my last dotty quilt that have been calling my name. I haven't decided what quilt to make yet though. I like the one you are going to do.

Cathi said...

I love that pattern -- perfect for your dots collection. What is it about dots? I hope to eventually do a dotted quilt too -- but haven't figured out what pattern yet.

Busty LaRue said...

Fun fabric! Can't wait to see the finished product

Selvage Quilter said...

That's an impressive stash of dots! Nice pattern too. We quilters are always thinking ahead, aren't we?

Mego said...

I saved that issue TOO! I adore that quilt! Impressive 'dotty' stash! Have fun!

Heleen said...

I love your dotty fabrics! It'll be great to make a dotty quilt!

Anina said...

Very nice! So funny that you have Quilts & More from 2006! I was just thinking about throwing out all my older magazines, but now I'm not so sure...

Poppyprint said...

What a stash! What a quilt. It will be fantastic and super fun...definitely worth ripping out those pattern pages and tucking them into your dotty stash shelf for a week with more time (someone is working on inventing that, right?)!

jaybird said...

i have that same quilt marked down for "one day"

Carol from Panama said...

Very cute pattern and I LOVE your bright dotty stash.

If I were making this quilt I think I would have a bit more contrast in the background blocks - too much expanse of white for my tastes.

Cardygirl said...

Love all those dots...and what a perfect pattern!

em's scrapbag said...

What a happy fun quilt. It will look great with the beautiful dotty stash you have and are collecting.

Ginger Patches said...

I love dots!! I am using a lot of dots in my current project, but you WAY have me beat in the dot stash department--WOW! That is going to be one cute quilt!!!

Quilts on Bastings said...

I love both dotty fabrics and Piece of Cake Designs - it will be another stunning quilt.

Wendy said...

I have that pattern! It was a free download from All People Quilt and is in the works. I started cutting up scraps and I'm accumulating what I need little by little.

pratima said...

wow, lovely collection of dots, Jackie. This is going to be a wonderful quilt :)

Chris said...

I have stash envy. Those polka dots will be great for that quilt.

Elizabeth said...

I love dots too! They are always so much fun! That quilt is really great! I love it!

Janet said...

Oh, I just want to dive into your dotty stash, what fun and the pattern is pretty neat.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Great pattern Jackie! If you run out of room for fabric, just let me know. I can "store" some for you!

Sharon (Stitches on Mars) said...

Such a beautiful quilt Jackie...no wonder you are collecting dotty fabrics.

I will love to see yours when you get to it :)

Hugs, Sharon

Nedra said...

I've made a quilt out of all polka dots, and it was so fun to collect fabrics. It looks like you've got a great start. The Piece O' Cake pattern is a perfect selection.

alobsiger said...

Love that quilt, Jackie! I have a stack of dots that have been waiting around to become Piece O' Cake's Everyday Best quilt. Heh heh heh, I'm not sure where that stack might be at this very minute and I'm sure I have more to add to it since it first began. Lovely! Isn't it fun to make plans?

Rae Ann said...

I simply love the Dotty Stars pattern. Seeing it makes me want to build one! I have collected dot fabrics for years and this would be a great way to use them. Can't wait to see this one finished!
I never have a problem of adding to my stash! That's my problem!!! Don't we love it though~

Annemariesquilt said...

Even another quilt wow and this one is a beauty!!
And what a great stash of dot fabric Jackie. Good luck with your new project and happy Easter to you...

Millie said...

Love those dotty fabrics, and that quilt will be stunning!

Lori said...

randi said...

I love your piles of dots! And that quilt is fantastic!

sandra said...

Hi Jackie I have a special project to do and I need some black fabric with color dots on it ,have you any idea where you found it or whose fabric it was. I think your quilt will be amazing with all the dotty fabric you have

Staci said...

I love all the dotty fabric you have collected and think it will be perfect for the quilt project from the magazine. :)

Kim D. said...

I've been collecting dots for a long time as well and oh, I love stars too. I don't have that magazine, wonder how I missed that adorable quilt pattern.

Tine said...

I have that quilt on my to-make list too :) Your dot collection is so much larger than mine, though!! I am sure you will make a beautiful quilt!
Oh...and I LOVE that pattern!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I love this quilt too. I love the colors. It really is something.
