Polka-Dot Quilt at A Snail's Pace

The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground.
–Unknown

I really wanted to have a whole quilt to show off today. I'm not quite done with the quilting, so instead, you get a tiny sneak peek of the swirlies I'm doing in between all the circles.

I ♥ polka-dots. The first polka-dot quilt is a gift for a special aunt {I may have mentioned this already}. And I'm making one to keep at Bug Cottage for snuggling up under while reading or watching TV. I've got half the quarter-circle blocks sewn together, and I'm determined to finish this quilt before I get distracted by anything else. I kind of have to because I've embroidered “March 2012” into the quilt label. Nothing like a deadline to keep you motivated.

Looking great so far. Deadlines help to get things done faster too. I keep making deadlines too to help the process.
