    I don't know why but lately I have started liking dot fabric more and more. Never had any interest in it before now I just can't stop looking at it and I can't afford to go off my fabric diet.

    I hate to sound greedy.. but would you consider sharing any of the scraps that you don't send to our friend.. I'm making five quilts as a unity projects for my staff.. All of them are made from scraps.. I'm make 6.5"squares, but since my sister is an interior designer, she put in my head there has to be some uniformity.. and since the sashing is navy, all the blocks have to have a piece of navy, but then she put it in my head that I have to do more to coordinate mine, and I chose dots.. I'm now trying to find all kinds on dots.. If I don't laugh, I'll go nutty.. I do love her dearly.. I wouldn't mind paying for whatever..

    I love dots also and am trying to collect as many different ones as I can. My DD started me on this venture and I just can't seem to stop.

    I love dots. Have one done in pastel dots.Added red with white dots as the border and backing to a pinwheel quilt in bright primary colors the red dotted fabric really make the quilt. Want to do sometime in all bright dots.

    I have been trying to come up with a cute design to use opposite colors of dots (i.e. pink dots on green, and green dots on pink, etc.) but haven't come up with anything yet. But anyway dots are definitely in!

    Barri, I don't have that much. But perhaps someone else will offer.
