I collected fabrics with spots or dots for quite a while - just on a whim, really. When at Paducah in 2007, I bought several larger pieces, as I had a lot of smaller ones.
Then, finally, I went to work on the quilt. The center of it is hand pieced, the borders added by machine. I didn't really plan the colors. Just used the smaller pieces for the center rings etc.
It is queen sized and was machine-quilted by Regina Carter.
