Here it is everyone! I showed you my polka dot mini quilt on Monday and hoped to have the pattern ready by the end of the week and I made my deadline. Do you want to see the mini quilt again? I hope so, because I’m going to show it to you!
The blocks are big – they finish at 18″. That makes it easy to make a nice size quilt without a lot of blocks. I used prints from the Chestnut Street by Fig Tree line for my mini. I think they are such happy prints, and that polka dot binding is my absolute favorite.
Here is an image of a throw size done in the same fabrics. You might notice I switched the two fabrics in the center pinwheel. I like the way that changing them made it easier to see the pinwheel.
See how the pinwheels in the center of the block appear to spin? Even the block has a circular motion to it, making the stars look like they are dancing across the quilt.
The pattern includes fabric cutting recommendations to speed up the piecing, as well as a fabric key to help with labeling your fabric selections.
How about a solid version?
The pattern is so versatile. You could make one block and turn it into a cushion cover. Or make two or three for a table runner.
Here’s a table runner size using Ombre and Spectrum from V and Co. Wouldn’t this be great for Valentine’s Day or spring decorating?
There are so many fabrics to use – every version would look totally different. Don’t you think a scrappy version would be so fun to make?
