Lots of Dots -- Month Three
Lots of Dots quilt by Chris Jurd. Although I like the quirkiness of the original as it adds interest to the quilt, I decided in the end that I want to keep mine more uniform--especially if I decide to play with the placement a bit differently in the final layout. Instead of the four different New York Beauty blocks, I decided to make one four times and sew together as one large radiating sun. I then found that the center was far too large so I played around with the center and decided to make another of month one's blocks to fit into the center. Heh, heh, I'm happy with the result now.
I also had forgotten to take a picture of the second block I made from month two, which is shown in the second photo. I'm trying to keep a little bit of a travel theme with this quilt and will be fussy cutting here and there to try and reflect that.
The third photo shows all the blocks I have made so far all together so you can get an idea of the scale of the various "dots". I still have to make the second block for month three...
