What’s Working on Wednesday

 

I’ve been wanting to make a quilt with small and large dots for a while now. So I took one small and one large dot Riley Blake cotton dots charm pack and tada!

Now I have a problem. I’d like to make it larger and I don’t have any yardage of these dots in my stash, so I have to order more charms to complete it.

Since I wasn’t going to be finishing the dots this week I thought I’d dig out another UFO! You might remember this if you’ve been following for a while. Here’s a post from 2013 at which time it had already become a UFO. (sad, but true)

It looks like I had squares in mind for this quilt, but I don’t remember.

So I made HSTs using this method.

 

          hsts

Stitched around all four sides.

Cut one way on diagonal.

Cut the other way on the diagonal,

and press! Four easy HSTs.

I adore polka dots and I like your idea with big and small ones. Don't you love that method of making HSTs? Your quilt is going to be charming!

I love the mixed dots! I made one with large dots, and sashing between the blocks, but I really love the mix you have!!

What a great mix with the dots! Clever blocks, our group made pinwheels like this a while back and loved them!

Love the polka dots. Like the way you do your hst's but I'd be scared at all those bias edges. I have a nasty habit of stretching them no matter how careful I am.
When I leave a WIP/UFO for any length I always put a note in the container referencing the pattern I was going to make or a quick pencil sketch xxx
