Merry-Go-Round

I saw this quilt hanging in one of my favorite quilt stores and fell in love! It is an American Jane Pattern and I thought it would look great done in polka-dots. I got together with my accomplice in quilting crime and we each picked our favorite polka-dots. After much consideration and deliberation we choose our top 40 dots, and got busy ironing, cutting, stripping and sewing.

I initially was intimidated by the hexagons, but once I learned it was made by strip piecing I was in heaven. This quilt got really interesting mixing and matching all the colors and dot patterns. I can't wait to finish it and get it on my bed!

I decided to add a final black border to the outside of the quilt so that it could be a fit little better on my king size bed.

I've been browsing through your quilts. They are all beautiful. Is this one still a work in progress? If not I would love to see the quilt in its finished state.

This is one of my favorites of your quilts! Beautiful! I love your Family Tree quilt, too--great idea including your family. I am helping the seminary kids make a similar idea. Exciting to see!
