Step II: Mary's Gone Dotty!

In the bottom drawer of my sewing desk, I found some plastic templates. I bought them at least 15 years ago, thought they looked like a handy trick. Never used them even once. I had just pieced together a bunch of crumbs, was pondering what they might become, and next thing you know, I've put stabilizer on the back of this new fabric and cut out a few dozen dots, ready for applique.

What are they? Bubbles? Balloons, maybe? What will they be appliqued to? I dunno!!! I'm just waiting wait for directions for Step III and maybe something will happen to connect my dots! Hmmmmmm....

  1. Really Really like those dots. Great colors and I can hardly wait to see what you do with them.

  2. Darling! Dotty crumbs from the depths of the bottom drawer...a quilt just waiting to pop out!

  3. Wow! Wow! Wow! Very cool.

    I can't picture you getting things like templates while you were sailing.... Guess they were small.... Glad you found them again for this project!
