Polka Dot Quilt by Terry Morberg

Terry likes polka dots and whenever she goes into a quilt/fabric store if she can’t find something to add to her stash she looks for polka-dots.  What a great idea!

So many fun things in this quilt, I love the Kaffe Fassett target fabric in the border and the striped sashing.  We decided to further enhance the circle – polka-dot theme with a pantograph called Spirals by Denise Schillinger.  Quilted with rainbow variegated thread.

And here is the quilt on a deck chair at Terry’s.  This was one of those serendipitous moments, a couple of us went by Terry’s for a drink and some appies and we all turned up wearing orange - not a common colour.  I thought the occasion deserved a picture.

  1. Very pretty. Love the stripes as the long sashing. Too funny you were all in orange. Must have been great minds thinking alike.

    1. Thanks Deb, this is a cute quilt. I often notice people and clothing colour however I agree the orange was too funny.

  2. So colorful! I love the spiral quilting. Very creative!
