Polka Dot Modern Quilt Is Finished

I finished it!  My first real modern quilt.   Yes, it had to have dots in it.   There is a limit to my restraint from three dimensional and circles.   Even for a modern quilt.  

This one has a few dots, just one in each block and it was quilted in a circle.   I used different colours as well for the thread.  


The blocks were done two at a time, with a new method I invented.   Doesn't that have to happen when you are faced with several blocks to complete?  


I just used my regular foot when quilting it and used the diameter of the foot to determine how far apart each line would be from the one before.


The fabric is from Riley Blake Fabrics, and is their solid and dot collection.   Sigh.   Love that fabric.


I have it hanging in my studio at the moment just enjoying the dots and the fact that it is done.
