The use of mostly light-hearted fabrics give the quilt an updated look, especially by introducing polka dots into the mix! For some reason, polka dots are like the life of a “fabric party” – they always lighten up the mood.
The quilting motif on the blocks is actually an applique motif used as a quilting motif. You can read about how I “mark without marking” the quilting motif here.
Fabrics are a mixture of Summer Solstice, Everything but the Kitchen Sink, Crazy for Dots and Stripes, Pindots, Jinny Beyer Palette (all by RJR) and some scraps thrown into the mix. Quilting thread is Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton, and batting is Hobbs Tuscany Silk.
