Dots on Dots

I don’t know what happened to my computer but I am not able to get into my original post….one I worked hard on I might add.  It was scheduled for midnight and now I can’t even get in there to post the post I had.

Come to find out I have a virus!!!  That stinks!

 

So…I am just going to make this simple.

IMG_1064  Four 6 1/2 inch squares, 5” circle, 3” circle, 2” circle…..

IMG_1071  IMG_1121

Thought my quilt was too bright so I made those who don’t like brights a pillow

Can’t leave without a towel now can I????

 

Thanks to Corrie from Quilt Taffy and Madame Samm for this fun hop.

Barb I hate these darn computers sometimes! But I love your circles...I seem to be hung up on circles these days. However, your towel - that's my favorite today. I'm in Colorado camping this week and the signs of Autumn are everywhere so that towel just goes beautifully with my trip. :) blessings, marlene

Hi Barb-Computers can be so frustrating. We have a love-hate relationships with them-love 'em when they work and hate them when they don't. Fortunately it's not that way with the sewing machine, at least in my case, I love it, perhaps because mine is an old mechanical that is very dependable. I just had a major service on mine, so it's raring to go! Your dotty quilt is gorgeous. I noticed that you have a 'stitch in the ditch' foot. I recently bought one and have used it in the last step in binding a quilt. It takes some practice, but I think it will be a time-saver for you once you master it. Thanks for sharing, from California

Sandy said...

Love all of your dots, especially the towel! Very cute!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Joyce Carter said...

I am sorry to hear that you did so much and then lost it because of a virus. It actually does stink! But I enjoyed looking at the pictures that you have posted today. And I sooo love the quilt you made. It is beautiful and bright with all the colors. How did you make your circles? I am curious because I can not make a perfect circle.Mine always tend to be a little wonky. Thank you for sharing your projects with every one today and I hope you get your computer straighted out.

Mimi said...

There's just something about circles that I love... and the dots give your creation a sweet appeal! Thanks for sharing.

Sue said...

I love your bright! Sorta' a gloomy day here so your quilt is like a ray of sunshine! Love the pillow also.

JanesQuilting said...

I like your bright circle quilt. It is adorable. I never tried sewing the curved seam yet. Well, I put sleeves in blouses, but that is it. Someday I will. Your pillow and towel are also pretty. You do good work.

I too had problems with my blog. To me it looks like they changed their format. Unfortunate for us, they didn't mention it ahead of time.

pinsandneedles said...

Oh Barb your quilt is lovely! I love the bright circles on circles. Technology is great until it doesn't work and then...argh! I feel your frustration. Thanks for sharing!

so sorry about your computer troubles, but you sure didn't have any troubles coming up with some adorable items. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Vesuviusmama said...

I like the brights and the pillow, too. Don't you hate computer viruses? To think that someone spends their time coming up with ways to mess up other people's computers. They need to switch to a useful hobby...like quilting!

Linda said...

HI! THE ACORNS ARE SO NEAT!

I love, love your dotties - what fun to see them. Not so much fun when the computer is not working - I do not believe it is operator error either, just funny happenings in la-la land when emails and words disappear into the great unknown. Judy C
