Polka Dot Mask Quilt finish - and!! Finished ( or not) Friday!!!

 This is a quilt I started back when the pandemic Started... Sort of...


I dug out a box of fun polka dot fabrics to make masks with, and then I decided... no - these should be a quilt.  So I dug out the ugly fabric for masks - and continued making blocks with these fun little polka dot ones,

Oh! I had already cut the mask pieces - so I did get pretty far before I decided they needed to be a quilt....

and now!!!

It is now completely finished !!



Since it had Polka Dots - I really thought the quilting needed dots too.....



AND!!!! In my stash I had a rainbow polka dot - so that's what I used for the binding.... isn't it fun!!!

My Flamingo Clips Love the Colors



Ta Da!!! A finish!!! and!!!  its one of the items that was in my Pile Project start....

I love your quilt, so pretty and happy! I'm so glad we don't have to make masks anymore but I still keep one in the glove compartment of my car, just in case! Happy stitching!

Love the quilting with the dots!

Vicki in MN said...

Oh yes the polka dots make a much better quilt;) Love the quilting on it also.

Andra Gayle said...

What a lovely, bright quilt! I agree it needed to be a quilt rather than masks. I have given up on making masks and carry disposables with me. I rarely need them since I am no longer working, just staying home and quilting.

What a beauty! I love it! Pinning.

Vicki W said...

What a cute quilt! Yes, those fabrics are better in a quilt rather than in masks.

Great finish. I'm busy making scrappers for donation using the same pattern.

The polka dots group well together and I love the dots you quilted in as well. Hooray for a finish of a WIP, and I spy a super fun binding, too!

I love how you coordinated everything about this quilt from the polka dots to quilting dots to rainbow sashing. Perfect!

Bernie Kringel said...

Isn't it funny how polka dots just seem happy? I love them in any color. Very sweet finish Alycia!

Polka dots rule! And you have so many pretty ones in your quilt! I never have enough dots in my stash, and I'm always sad when I use up the last bit of one. The gorgeous quilting puts it over the top. Sadly, I'm ripping up some quilting this weekend. When you mess up, you have to own it. Sigh.

A very fun and colorful finish! The quilting is perfect. Have a wonderful weekend.

This is a fun quilt. It's a simple pattern but yet so striking. I'm starting to rethink future projects. Time to go back to basics...keep it simple.

Delighted Hands said...

that is one very fun quilt! What a great idea and it's done! good job.

So glad you opted to use these fun fabrics for a quilt instead of for masks! I used a few of my favorite Kaffe Fassett prints for masks and I regret wasting them now that the fabric masks are no longer mandatory, and no longer even acceptable -- if I try wearing one to a doctor's office or hospital they make me exchange it for a paper one anyway. What weird times we've been living through, right? Just so we can tell crazy stories to our great-grandchildren someday about how hard we had it before they were born!

Hi Alycia, what a wonderful, happy quilt. I think that the fabric makes a better quilt than masks (which although possibly pretty, are not a great reminder of that time!) Take care.

This is such inspiration for the mask leftovers in my stash. I made about 100 masks altogether, but gave away cut and measured fabric and elastic for at least 500 more to friends and neighbors doing the 500 mask challenge. Mine won't be as coordinated as yours, though, if I ever get around to doing it. Mine don't have one theme!
