I have caught the modern quilting bug. The quilts are simple, graphic, and quick to sew. The Dotty Do-Little quilt is a perfect project for a beginner or a more experienced quilter who just wants to have fun. There are no triangles in this quilt, only squares and rectangles to cut and stitch. How easy can this be?
The fabrics in a modern quilt are often solid colors...no prints. Modern quilts also have lots of white and soft gray with only a splash of color for punch. I still have a preference for prints so this quilt uses mini-dots for the colors and a larger polka dot that is a white-on-white print for the solid white. If your local quilt shop carries Andover fabrics try using "Dimples" fabrics by Gail Kessler. These fabrics will add textured dots and read as solid colors in the finished quilt. If you prefer you can use the solid colors preferred by modern quilters to make a Dotty Do-Little quilt without the dots.
The finished quilt measures 56" x 72"
