I did not realize how many dotted fabrics I had used until I gathered up all the scraps to use in one quilt. I found a tutorial on the Missouri Star Quilt Company site that uses a 16-patch center in some traditional stars.
Along with my dots, I used muslin for the background fabric. I only needed to buy an additional dot for the sashings and for the backing and outer border.
I think there are 14 different dots in the 16-patches. The stars feature different colors of the same dotted print that I got in fat-quarters in a 'fabric-by-the-pound' bin.
Here you can see the quilting, which is loop-the-loop meandering using cream colored thread.
I am going to keep this one where it will live on the guest bed. It is the exact size of the queen mattress.
It's been nice to decide lately to keep some of these quilts for myself as, up to now, I have only made banners to keep. I now have spring, fall and Christmas quilts for decor as well as this guest throw. Hubby has the king dog quilt, too.
Hmmm, a blue winter quilt and a summer quilt for decor and I will be all set.
