Modern Dots

i finally got back into the sewing room today and a quilt block was the perfect-size project for me to tackle.

i love, love, love this dot fabric, so i decided that for me, "minimal" meant using only two different fabrics. and a minimal number of seams. you could also view the block in this orientation:

well, i suppose you could turn it in any of the four directions, but these were the only two i photographed. it's a bit of a stab in the dark, but i hope your son likes it, jacquie! thanks for giving me the chance to play with this print.

The minimal approach certainly works for me.

very cool, carissa! I have been hemming and hawing over how to make a non complicated block and this is the perfect fit for this month.
