Em's quilt

Em decided that she needed to enter a quilt contest inspired by Dana.

She knew exactly what she wanted to do.  Use all the polka dot fabric that she has been collecting for quite some time and cut them into triangles.  594 triangles.  Yeah.  More ambitious than I have been for sure.  Now it's just a matter of deciding what the back should look like.  There's a huge debate going on about that.  

And it was all thought of after she saw the picture below.
(from design seeds

Can you believe she said she is bored at the moment and really needs to get going on the back of the quilt.  Determination.  Gotta love it!



  1. WOW, what a girl you have there. Looking forward to seeing her finished quilt.

  3. Total opposite of dots. The backing MUST be stripes! :D

  4. WOW Em, whatever you choose for the back i know will be perfect. The top is beautiful! Well done :)

  5. It's a beautiful quilt with wonderful colors. Looking forward to seeing what she decides to do with the back. Heather
