I think we’ve all worked on a project when we just didn’t have enough fabric! You know the drill, you buy what you think is plenty of fabric, get to work and then BOOM! You’re running out of fabric and you’re not even close to being done! You could go get more fabric but you’re on a deadline! Maybe it’s just me, but that is exactly what happened for this project when I designed it many years ago! I had to use every little scrap I had to make the background big enough to do my applique patterns on top!
Although I was sweating over it at the time, I ended up changing the original pattern to match the creation I made in a crunch! I loved the new scrappy look that it had!
This quilt is fun because of the muted background that gives movement and the Dancing Dots on the top that are appliqued down! It’s a great project because we can practice some curved piecing, straight piecing and even applique! I hope you enjoy this tutorial!
