Connect the Dots....

June has ended up being a month of finishes for me...
Thank Goodness!

I had all of these quilt tops done and needed to get them quilted and bound.

I finished
"Connect the Dots"
(thanks for the name, Lea Anne!)
back in March and finally took it to my LAQ last month.
Today I finished sewing the binding down
and I am so happy with this quilt.

We had a GORGEOUS day today... no rain!
I was able to get some photos outside.

This pattern is called
"Mailboxes" by Laundry Basket Quilts.
I have no idea why it's called Mailboxes!

I couldn't decide on what color polka dots to use for the binding
and then I found this fabric.
I love it with all of the polka dot fabrics.

The backing fabric I found is so much fun with all 
of these inspirational sayings.
AND it was on a big sale!!

This one will be put away and wait for someone in need of a quilt.

The design my LAQ used is a swirl with leaves.... Love it!

You definitely have a thing for polka dots! Interesting pattern. Is it in a book or a standalone pattern?

It's always a good feeling to finish a quilt. It really is a lovely quilt, and as you say it is good to have a dry day!

Those fabrics are perfect for that pattern. The finished quilt is so interesting to look at...and a real eye pleaser!

Great finish, love the colors! I can see envelopes in the design, that can justify the name 'Mailboxes'.
