    Did you have a pattern in mind? Funny thing I'm making the same type of quilt. I saw in a magazine a quilt with a colorful background pieced then flowers appliqued all over out of Dresden plates. I'm doing one in fall colors as the background and turkeys made from Dresden plates with leaves and pumpkins appliqued as well. Interested to see how you decide to do the background! I'm using what the pattern in the mag has but interested to see different too!!

    The pattern is from American Patchwork and Quilting: February 2004; The name is Completely Dotty. I want to do another with all dotty fabric too. I used the arcs from this pattern.

    The layout from Mary Mashuta's Confetti Quilt.

    Thanks for liking! peace

    It weights a ton.Several fabric display shelves and my long wooden table came from the same store.

    Really miss the store.

    Are you going to piece the background and then applique the circles on to it? I would love to see more pics as you progress. Thanks for sharing

    I pieced one arc so far. I tried piecing the center but it is a very small arc with so many seams id doesn't look real nice. So I think I am going to applique the centers on after the top is finished.

    I was going to use light to medium shades of purples for the BG but the suggestion was made for a black BG so I may change to that. I like that idea.
