    So this quilt will only have polka dot fabrics in it. I currently have 51 different fabrics going into it. I will probably be adding more as I move along, because I already feel like I don't have enough variety, strange as that sounds. hehehe

    So I've been posting some of my progress pictures on Facebook and thought I'd make a thread here.

    So here are the first 45 of the fabrics!

    Some piles of cut up squares

    The first 6 9-patches

    Massive amounts of triangles...

    ... turn into these little triangle square units

    And more of them

    .... adding in one big setting triangle

    gives you this!

    So this is what I had when I went to bed last night:

    hehe Looooooong ways to go for a king size, eh?

    I did more this morning than I had expected to! So I put together 3 more of those triangle square pieces w/ the setting triangle. Those, along with 4 big white squares:

    When you assemble those pieces, you get THIS!! My first full block of the quilt... and you can see where it gets it's name "Dotty Stars" from! (It's supposed to be an 18 1/2" unfinished block size, but mine came out at 18"!! Oops)

    I've been worrying for the past 2 days that the "darks" weren't dark enough and the star wouldn't be obvious..... what do you guys think? I've been contemplating going shopping for MORE fabrics. In the beginning I felt that 51 different fabs was PLENTY, but when you break them out into color themes (like this is done in greens) you realize you don't have as many as you thought!

    I think the star shows up well.

    I thought of you earlier when I saw a bunch of dot fabric at the store.

    I love it!! And I can relate to needing MORE fabrics. When I was working on the one in my pic for my SD, I had to go back to the store several times for one colour or another. I'm glad I did, and if you are going to "colour theme" each block, you may find yourself back at the store too...or raiding your neighbours' stach. ;)

    I like that so many ppl share ongoing projext pix. Definitely helps to get the creative juices flowing. :D
