2015 Finish #5 Polka Dot Bow Tie Baby Quilt

I really like polka dots and bright colors for baby quilts.   My Polka Dot Bow Tie Baby quilt was one of the few quilt tops that I actually finished this fall.  Craftsy did a great job creating this kit with Riley Blake.

This quilt top was actually a recent finish.  I was able to purchase backing for $6 a yard off Instagram.  The rainbow dots were perfect for the quilt.  If I wouldn’t have found such a great deal, I would have added this to the 4+ yards of minky that I used as backing during my long arm quilting session.


I finally have been able to get a few decent photos of this quilt.  The lighting, cold temperatures, and wind has been making it difficult to photograph.   Minor compared to other parts of the U.S., but I braved the elements!


Beautiful, colorful matching dots on the back!

About My Pieced Life

I am in love with all things quilting. My sewing room has many works-in-progress and a large stash of fabric. I have big plans and lots of ideas of creations I would like to make. My wonderful husband supports my obsession and Carson, my Australian terrier, keeps me company while I sew.

    I just love, love, love this quilt. So fun!

    • Thanks for the quilt love! I keep wondering if I should have bought 2 kits to make a bigger quilt for me! Can’t you just picture it a bit bigger? Babies shouldn’t get all of the cute quilts, right? ; )
