Interested in making your own Polka Dot Quilt? A pattern for this quilt is now available. Read more about it here!
My daughter has been asking for a new quilt to add to her bed during the winter. She has plenty of quilts, but can you really have too many quilts?
She requested a quilt made with the blue/green/teal/turquoise-ish colors and we pretty much cleaned out my stash with this quilt.
I thought it would be fun to do white polka dots, but I think I made them too big . . .? They don't exactly seem very polka-dotty. They are more like giant crop circles.
Harper insisted that she loves the quilt anyway and it is now living on her bed along with her Betty Quilt
The backing is a Robert Kaufman Flannel
- it's hard to see in the photo but it is a little bit of black, gray, and white mixed together. It's not the girliest backing fabric, but it is so wonderfully textured, super soft, and I wanted something calm since the front is pretty crazy. I hand stitched
the binding down using Perle cotton.
I am thinking about trying the quilt again, but this time with smaller circles. Maybe I will try out a baby quilt version before I invest in sewing all of those curves again!
Finished size: 60" x 72"
Fabrics: Various blues, teals, and greens
I took these photos at the Oregon State Capitol and got a chance to get a photo of my kids + the French exchange student that we have staying with us. My 7 year old cannot take a normal photo!
