Swapping Dotty Stars

This week I am working on some blocks I am swapping on my online quilt forum – Sew Many Swap.  I have wanted to do this Dotty Star pattern for a long time and finally have the opportunity.  It is available for free on Here is my first block.


The blocks are huge, 18” stars and all the fabrics are dots!  I have been collecting dot fabrics for a while and I am getting to use them like crazy in this project.  I am doing two sets.  One will be all cool colors with blue, green, violet, and turquoise.  The other set will be warm colors with red, orange, pink, and yellow.  I am paper piecing them and they come out very nice. . . but sheesh. . . do they ever take time to make!

So what are you working on.  Leave a comment, I would love to hear about your current projects.



  1. Yes, my friend and I are going to be starting this quilt too. I have been collecting brightly colored dotty fabrics since the pattern first came out in the Spring 2006 issue of Quilts and More. I have my whole stash ready to go, just got to start. Looking forward to seeing your progress too.

  2. Reeze: Thanks for sharing this site. I'll be working along with you. I've saved dotty fabrics for years and am looking forward to using them and watching your progress.


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for sharing your ideas.
