Dots on Dots Blog Hop

Thanks to the Madame Samm, the queen of blog hops and her cheerleader/organizer, Corrie from Quilt Taffy for presenting the Dots on Dots Blog Hop. Today is my day to show you what I created. I love applique so I made several applique blocks.
This is Miss Dotty.

I added some chicken wire fabric for the border and the binding. Miss Dotty, the finished quilt is now hanging in my kitchen.

Three pink polka dot piggies! I used watercolor pencils to paint the background fabric on this block.

Three pink polka dot piggies is now a pillow! (say that 3 times fast). This one I am giving to my daughter who loves pink piggies.

All the fabrics here have dots on them.

This one I created dots using fabrics that I appliqued.

A closer photo gives this block a different look.
I had a lot of fun making these blocks and quilts. Now go and see what these other quilters made.
Here is today's schedule for the Dots-on-Dots blog hop:
