    What a cute dotty quilt! I've found that dots can be great mixers, not solid but not quite a defined "print", either. I use them when I need some backgrounds or extras for kids' fabrics. They work so much better than solids.

    I collect moderns-- Amy Butler Soul Blossoms right now, and also have a small collection of "Taza" by Westminster. I collect 30's reproductions and batiks, as well.

    Absolutely love what you have done with your theme fabric. The designs looks like a variation to "Thinking Outside the Blocks". I am presuming the backing will also have Dots, don't forget to post pictures when you are done. Just another thing to put on the bucket list. My weakness is leaves, I seem to be drawn to them to the point I don't even know that a piece of fabric has leaves on it but from a distance something drawns me to it, and you guessed it, leaves.

    OMG, the dottier the better. I love polka dots as well. Your quilt is inspiring me to go even dottier. LOL I'll have to check out that book. Thanks for sharing.

    I love Laurel Burch fabric - makes me happy just to look at it -all those beautiful vibrant colors. Strange think is I buy more than I use (maybe that isn't so strange, just a normal quilter's quirk)- everyone doesn't appreciate the colors as much as I do.

    I love Christmas themed fabrics, and I have a lot. I have also started collecting Halloween fabric.

    I collect Asian and Amish-themed fabric. Much easier to find Asian fabric, but I enjoy the challenge of finding nice Amish fabric. My first bed quilt is made with an Amish scenery panel.

    I am totally in love with Kansas Troubles fabrics. If you have any and don't know what to do with them, you can always send them my way.

    Love your dots! So bright and cheery. Most of my themed fabrics are cat fabrics.

    [QUOTE=Scakes;5745269](I have a quilt with over 70 different sewing prints in it);

    I would love to see a picture of your sewing theme quilt. I have quite a collection of sewing/quilting theme prints and have not found a pattern to use them.

    Sorry, didn't mean to hi-jack your thread, I love your dotty quilt!!
