Spots and Polka Dots.

Posted on | March 11, 2011 | 16 Comments

Another Colourful Friday has arrived and Robyn has asked us to look for spots and polka dots in any colour.  This is rather dangerous for a patchworker because you can never have too many of these in your stash! I had to make sure I only took a handful off the shelves!

I did find a few other things around the house, too, that fit the bill. Visit Robyn at Daisy Quilts to see how dotty the participants have become!

Of course there are buttons. These have not even managed to escape their packaging, yet.

And this little guy has shared the spotlight before, but I thought he fit  the theme perfectly.

I am in the process of making several of the bunnies for Easter.  The pattern was in Homespun magazine last year.

Some spots for a cuppa when needed.

Last, but not least, of course, the fabric.

There was only more thought for a photo of spots – me.  I am covered in them — well, freckles, really.  But then I decided just to leave it as a thought!

Have a wonderful spotty and dotty weekend!
