Polka Dot Day

The clock is winding down on it, but I just wanted to give a Tip of the Hat to National Polka Dot Day!

Yay! Polka dots! They always make me smile.

I didn't actually go through my stack of quilts or rummage through my quilt images, but I would say that many of my recent quilts have at least one polka dotted fabric in them. The first to really feature them was my fruity stars that I made about -- hmm, maybe 15 years ago. At that time, dots were hard to find (yes, dark days indeed) & I bought some of every kind & color that I found.


We are so lucky in so many ways, not the least is that polka dots -- of every stripe sort -- are available to us today!
Yay! Polka Dot Day!

I had no idea there was a polka dot day. How fun! And today is Pie day... Sadly no pie around here to celebrate with.
