A Dottie Quilt (48" x 57")
By: Sallie, Texas, USA
This was a BOM quilt that I made for my first granddaughter. I gave it to her last Christmas. She likes the pretty side down so that she can see it while she's sleeping. It was quilted by Millie from milliesquilting.blogspot.com.

Paper pieced bird houses surrounded by stripes, dots and more!
Bow-Tie (36" x 42")
By: J Smith, Nova Scotia, Canada
Blog: Stamp Stitch Create
Inspired by a quilt at Blue Elephant Stitches. I wanted to use Kona Solids, and then chose all polka dot fabrics from my stash to make the bow-ties. I also wanted it to be for a boy or a girl, so I used bold colors, but no pink! I backed it in blue, and then stitched 1/4 inch from all seams.
Dot's Enough! (45" x 50")
By: Nann Hilyard, Illinois, USA
Blog: With Strings Attached
I used Martha Thompson's "Square Dance" technique in which rows of squares are sewn togther, then cut out with a template marked with the "twist."
Greek Key Log Cabin Quilt (20" x 20")
By: Chumkie, Michigan, USA
Blog: My Favourite Things
I designed this quilt using gridded paper and colored pencils. Most Greek Key Log Cabin quilts are made with two fabrics. This one is made with three fabrics which made it more challenging. Because the center of the quilt is so graphic and angular, I softened it with a floral binding.
Journey to the Sun (42" x 42")
By: Journey to the Sun, New Jersey, USA
I enjoy working with colors of the sun.
In this piece there are many Kaffe Fasset fabrics & several funky stripes.
I am an abstract strip piecer and don't plan much.

night and day (60" x 72")

modern fabrics with much of regular and irregular dots, letters and the checks for a plaid as a puzzle for my daughter with which the apartment is decorated in black and white.
Prism Scrap Quilt (36" x 45")
By: Polly @ Helping Little Hands, Washington, USA
Blog: Helping Little Hands
I used scraps left over from another scrap quilt...so this is a double scrap quilt. The way the rainbow lines are, it reminds me of light separated by a prism, hence the name.
QLD Relief Quilt - Baby Blocks (36" x 42")
By: CrafteeCC, Australia
Blog: Cathy's Sewing Room
This baby quilt was made in 2011 and auctioned off to raise funds for the Flood Relief effort for the victims of the Queensland Floods that hit Australia in December 2010 and January 2011. Dots are on the binding, Checks & Stripes are in the 9 patch squares.
Rainbow Days and Starry Nights (48" x 63")
By: Debby Visser, New York, USA
Rainbow dots for my teen daughter. She picked all the fabric even the white is dotted. She also loves sneakers. We used a black & white sneaker that passes through a rainbow edge to become as colorful as a rainbow. The backing is glow in the dark stars so the name of Rainbow Days & Starry Night.
Trip around the world baby (44" x 44")
By: Sewcute, Indiana, USA
Blog: Sewcute's sewing adventures
This was a baby quilt for a good friend when she had her first baby. A boy. I was stumped at which fabric to use since many fabrics have a floral print to them. I chose trip around the world because it was a new to me pattern.
Verschlungene Pfade (52" x 52")
By: Maria, Germany
Blog: Marias Quiltbox
Two sided quilt. This is the back of my quilt ... made from the leftovers. I am really happy with it.
Zoologie Cirlces (40" x 55")
By: grapes and hearts, Germany
A baby quilt using my favourite Ann Kelle prints from her Urban Zoologie and Remix lines. The most difficult part was choosing the background colour. The quilt will be gifted next month to a cute little boy. I'm looking forward to see how he likes it... (o:
