Dots on Dots Hop - Rainbow Dots Block



Hi!  If you're stopping over for the Dots on Dots, welcome!  I'm so happy to be sharing my block with all of you today.




When I decided to join in this hop I knew exactly what fabrics I wanted to use.  I have  had a rainbow polka dot charm pack from Connecting Threads for a while which was perfect for this block.  



I pulled out the primary rainbow colors, Red, Orange Yellow, Green, Blue and Violet, paired them with some crisp Kona White and then turned them into cute little half square triangles.  I pieced them in opposite directions for each row and added some white border to frame the block and finish it out at 12.5".  I think I'm going to turn this into a mini table topper for my nightstand!

A very big Thank You to Corrie from Quilt Taffy and Madame Samm from Sew WE Quilt for putting together this month's great blog hop!  Head over to Quilt Taffy to see the entire hop schedule. 

See who else is posting today below.  Be sure to stop by and see their dotty blocks!
