Sewing - Polka Dots!!!

Hi there!

Ever been to the grocery store and you decide to just "look" at the quilting magazines,
saying to yourself,
"No, I have enough magazines. I'm just going to look."....
knowing full well, that you'll probably be buying one? *grin*

Well, I've been pretty good lately, with not buying.... till two weeks ago. I picked up this magazine and don't cha just love it, when you take it home and realize,
"HEY! I wanna do EVERY quilt, in here... with the exception of 1 or 2!"

Anyhow, as there's a new swap going on - a "Polka Dot" fabric swap,
on the DJalternatelist group,
I thought I'd share with you a couple pics....

Now, I'm no fashion or fabric expert, but I'd say that "Polka Dots"
seem to be the "in" thing! *grin*

Magazine is by Fons&Porter's.... summer 2008Align Center

Here's one of the quilts - it's for a baby and the circles
are polka dots... most of the background blocks are stripes.
Cute, eh?

Here's a closeup of the "dots".

Anyhow, if any of you are crazy about "polka dots",
I would suggest that you run out and pick up this magazine....

Hey Rosa:

I LOVE polka dots and got that magazine from my Daughter in law for my bithday! I love it! It's got so many cute patterns in it. I will need to get a stash of polka dot fabrics going..I do have some :-). Thinking of joining that swap, but haven't even had a moment to check out the rules!
