      The yellow dots are from the “American Retro” line! I love ‘em!

    Oh I love these polka dots. Yes! I have tons of polka dot fabric too. :)

    Dots & Spots. Spots & Dots. Love them all. There is something comforting about dots. They’re very retro. Maybe they’re a reminder of childhood??

  15. jo August 30, 2009 at 5:19 am #

    You are not alone – I am collecting red and aqua at the moment for a quilt and nearly all of it is dots!

  16. jette k August 30, 2009 at 5:32 am #

    Absolutely! And it’s no wonder you are obsessed with these. They are very lovely!

  17. felicia August 30, 2009 at 5:33 am #

    Oh, I am dot obsessed as well, and ginghams, and all things child like. Dots…a great idea for a giveaway ;)

    I just fell in love with polka dot fabric recently after my local quilt shop got some in. Now I keep thinking about all of the fun projects (and quilt bindings) I could make. I think the dot love is inevitable. Your fabrics are lovely–I can’t wait to see what you do with them!

  19. Andrea August 30, 2009 at 6:22 am #

    oooh I love polka dots too. Actually, my growing stash right now is of solids. I love solids..they don’t get enough attention!

  20. jaybird August 30, 2009 at 6:35 am #

    yes it goes. i have an entire drawer of them. i can’t believe it took you this long to get hooked!! welcome to the club! ;-) {and no i haven’t made anything with them.. i just look at them… not that you would be surprised to know that}

  21. staci August 30, 2009 at 6:42 am #

    YES! When I was little I refused to wear anything with polka-dots. Now I’m obsessed with them. :)

  22. badlands quilts August 30, 2009 at 7:57 am #

    Ok, I had a cartful of honeycomb & dot prints in my Purlsoho shopping cart yesterday and when I read this last night, I saw it as a sign to complete the purchase…

  23. Kris August 30, 2009 at 8:04 am #

    I also love dots! I have no restraint at all when I see one I like

  24. anina August 30, 2009 at 8:16 am #

    I’ve always been a little obsessed with dots. Love ‘em.

  25. ellen patton August 30, 2009 at 8:17 am #

    I heart dots!

  26. Kolleen August 30, 2009 at 8:49 am #

    Of course! It happens to all of us who are already obsessed with fabric, quilting, sewing! And dots are the best no matter the decade!

  27. jen@ rosey little things August 30, 2009 at 9:05 am #

    I love polka dots! I especially love the ones you showed!

  28. paula August 30, 2009 at 9:06 am #

    I am a polka dot fanatic too! Can’t resist buying dot fabric whenever I see it….I have plans to someday make a quilt entirely of dot fabrics!

  29. Sarah August 30, 2009 at 11:35 am #

  30. amandajean August 30, 2009 at 12:25 pm #

    i LOVE dots! it’s hard to go wrong with them.

  31. Trisha August 30, 2009 at 4:04 pm #

    I think it’s in the air, because I’m really loving dots all of a sudden, too. :) Lovely fabric!

  32. Elizabeth H August 30, 2009 at 5:35 pm #

    Yes! I started liking them after my dear friend Sheila kept buying them. Now I can’t stop myself from buying dot fabric :)

  33. Maria August 30, 2009 at 5:59 pm #

    I love dots, I bought a piece…yellow with black. I don’t even want to cut it now….just admire it. Isn’t that funny.

  34. LIfe a Colorful Life August 30, 2009 at 10:05 pm #

    I have been obsessed with dots for a couple of years, so much so that I would buy fabric if it had the word “dot” as part of the fabric line name in the selvage. Then I carefully cut out each little phrase and pieced it into cornerstones that I put in the sashing. The one that got me started: dumb dot.

    Anyway, I haven’t looked back and collect dots obsessively. I see I’m in good company.

  35. sue brown August 31, 2009 at 1:31 am #

    oh yes, I’ve been addicted to dots for a couple of months now. They are all so pretty :)

  36. Doris August 31, 2009 at 1:22 pm #

    Oh, I’ve been obsessed with dots for decades. My latest obsession? Munki Munki fabric (who knew there were so many designs?)

  37. Allie August 31, 2009 at 3:25 pm #


  38. Teresa p August 31, 2009 at 5:47 pm #

    Love ‘em! Especially the brown with aqua dots (hehe).

  39. bekhy August 31, 2009 at 8:26 pm #

    hehe…i LOVE polka dots, esp the honeycombs. i really really really wish that the amy butler honeycombs would get reprinted, especially the cherry color. my next favorites are the randomly placed dots, and then funky dots like the mingles circles.

  40. Rebecca September 1, 2009 at 4:48 pm #

    Polka dots are my favorite!!
