Camille Roskelley’s “Retro” block was definitely a lot of fun to make. In fact I liked it so much that I made two quilts with that block. I thought it would be fun to try the quilt in purple and orange. Because the purple and orange were so strong in color, I added the white blocks in the middle to help break it up a bit. As I was putting this quilt together, I thought that using a red dot and plain white would look really cool too. So after I finished the first quilt, I jumped right into the second one. I chose six other dot fabrics and started cutting. Both quilts came together quickly and I like how they make such a neat pattern. I am looking forward to getting these quilted 🙂 They always look so much better when they have been quilted and bound!
As I spread the red one out on my couch to take a look, my puppy Kevin immediately jumped up on it. He loves my quilts – tee-hee!
Here is the purple one. Mike and Erica thought it looked very Halloween-ish!
Here is the red dot quilt. I ran out of the red dot fabric toward the end and had to substitute another dot fabric in. I actually like how it turned out. It gives the quilt a little burst of energy.
And my two faithful companions…

They both look wonderful. I am always fascinated to see how a design comes together and how different it looks when the colours are changed. I can’t say I have a favorite as I like them both.
You have been busy!
Hi Karen, the red one went together so quickly because I was so excited to see how it would turn out! I think I may have to add a border of some sort to the purple/orange one; those two colors are a bit overpowering! Happy Monday! Linda
I am in dot heaven with that red one! So cute and playful!
Hi Sara – thank you! I had a lot of fun putting together the red one! I may have to do another one – maybe with turquoise dots as the main fabric! Happy Monday. Linda
I love the quilts. I am a fan of bright colors. I can’t tell you how much you inspire me. I’m pretty new to quilting and I think I’ve found my fountain of inspiration. Your pups are adorable.
Diana – you are much too kind 🙂 You made my day! Can’t wait to see what you are working on next. I am playing around with some batiks and sailboats.
