Blogger's Quilt Festival

For those of us who couldn't go to Quilt Festival in Houston, there's a Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side!
Amy's Creative Side

I've decided to enter my Polka Dot Pinwheels quilt:

I made this quilt using polka dot charm squares from the very first charm swap I participated in--the beginning of my fabric swap addiction! The pinwheels are made with half square triangles. I free motion quilted just in the white areas of the quilt which gave it an interesting look on the back.  I like how you can see the outline of the pinwheels:

The back is Kona cotton medium gray and the binding is a red and white polka dot I had in my stash.

I didn't make this quilt for any particular reason other than I love polka dots and I wanted to experiment with HSTs. I think it would make a wonderful quilt for a baby girl so I'm going to hold onto it just in case. :) 
Finished Quilt Measures:  35.5" x 43.5"

  1. Very cute! Your piecing looks perfect.

  2. Fabulous pinwheel quilt. I like finding someone, like me, who makes quilts for no special reason.

  3. LOVE the dots! I think loving all those polka dots is reason enough to make a quilt!

  4. Yes, this would make a sweet baby quilt! Lovely!
