Dots On Dots Blog Hop

                                      Sew we quilt

The day has finally arrived when I can share some dotty goodness with you , thanks so much to Madame Samm and Corrie for being our wonderful cheerleaders and organizers , without them this would not be possible .I apologize this did not post at midnight but I did schedule it so must have done something wrong. So  on with the fun , First off I broke the rules a little as my first choice in blocks is a little larger than the 12" size suggested but I couldn't resist ,I have been wanting to make this little wall hanging ever since I seen it published in Quilter's Connection magazine in the summer of 2011 .The design is by Terry Morberg of Apple patch Designs .
 The finished size is 14.5x20.5 " , I just love it . So from there I went into a thought of killing two birds with one stone so to speak , I had been two months behind in the Shabby Fabrics BOM that I have been participating in and it just dawned on me that they would be perfect for dots , so dots it is .
 This is the first one I did , just love those sunflowers with their dotty bow.
This one is a little more difficult to spot those dots but believe me they are there , so click on the photo to enlarge.

And finally  this months block was announced just a few days ago so I promptly made it with dots as well .
I almost forgot to show you this block which was so much fun to make , this is a free BOM from Fat Cat Patterns and although I have not been keeping up with these each month , this one I could not resist.
 I hope you have enjoyed seeing my dots today , be sure to stop by and see what all the others have made as their contribution ,here is the list of those participating today and for a full list of the event just head on over to Corrie's blog Quilt Taffy and she has a full list on her sidebar. Thanks for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila
