For the past 3 years I’ve used the color teal in every single quilt I’ve made. Probably aqua too. It’s not a bad thing…just a random fact I realized today while putting some quilts away.
Maybe I should branch out and ditch the blues?
This quilt was made to travel to shops for trunk shows with the Dixie fabric…and as soon as it was done it shipped out to hang in a shop. Trish saved the day and pieced this quilt for me this Spring while I was massively pregnant, and Melissa quilted it.
You can find a kit for this Dottie quilt in Dixie here (they also have a Basket Case kit), and you can also find a Skipping Squares in Dixie kit here that is super cute. Dixie fabric can also be purchased here, or maybe even at your local quilt shop!
My week was completely made yesterday when 3 bolts of 108″ wide backs arrived on my doorstep. The blues are from my Dixie line (the links above have them) and the newsprint backing is by Carrie for Windham fabrics. I can piece a whole quilt top no problem…but it’s torture to sew one seam in a quilt backing! ;)
