It's time for another fun blog hop to inspire, motivate, and encourage us all.
for making this all happen!
Let the DOTS begin!
I loved those chevron fabrics by Riley Blake the moment I saw them and then....
...Whoohoo.....I won a fat quarter pack of them!
They paired up perfectly with some dots for this paper-pieced block.
Which I made into a pillow and added a button.
I had all the other colors of chevrons left over, so I used
them to make blocks of stripes and polka dots,
plus a pretty dress,
and put them all together to make a little girl's quilt.
It just needs some finishing and then it will be ready
for some sweet girl to wrap up in.
I loved appliqueing and sewing that little dress so much, I made another one,
added an "E" for Ellie (a really cute little girl I know)
and created a doll blanket (using the last of my chevrons for the back.

These paper pieced blocks of fuzzy dots (Truffula Trees) surround none other than.....
I found this paper piecing pattern at Fandom In Stitches
and added a little minky fabric for the moustache/beard.
They all went together to make this quilt.
And last, but not least,
I made this dotted block to go with a set of bowls.
Yes, another stack of bowls.
These are a second set I received from Madame Samm
(click here to see her story on why she sent me two sets of bowls.)
The finished wall hanging will look great hanging in my sewing room.
