Mirror Ball Dot Redux

I’ve been hearing about the re-release of the Mirror Ball Dot fabric line for the last couple of weeks. Today I found a blog post about it – here. I am reminded of the quilts that I made with the original line. So here’s the story …

My sister and my mom both bought kits (called Good Cents) with the entire original line of the Mirror Ball Dot fabric. I loved the fabric, but I’m just not a pattern kind of a girl. So, I told them that I’d like to have all of their scraps. The next time that I visited my mom, there on the dresser was a bag of scraps. To clarify, there on the dresser was a sandwich-sized bag of the shreds of fabric that they trimmed to straighten their cuts. Oh, my sister is SO funny! Hidden away in the sewing room was the real bag of scraps! Well, I couldn’t let my sister have the last laugh, so I made a quilt from her ‘scraps’.

This quilt is only 7″x10″. I guess I really did get the last laugh, because I gave my sister this quilt and borrowed it back later to put in a show. Somehow, I am still in possession of the quilt (until she sees this)! I made a king-size quilt for my bed, but I now realize that I don’t have a picture of it. I’ll have to take one and post that next.

There may be another Mirror Ball Dot quilt in my future ….

    • Wow, that’s an amazing quilt! I love it. It’s inrsieettng how so many traditional quilt styles look great done in selvages. If anyone needs selvages, just ask your guild members, and soon you’ll have more than you could ever use! Until they see the cool stuff you make; then they might want to hold onto them.Karen
