Mystery Dot

 

National Polka Dot day is Friday, January 22
so I looked through my polka dot file to find this rather odd dot quilt
from eBay maybe six years ago.

What is going on here---repeat wise?

I squared it up and it is still rather mysterious
Circles, squares and rectangles...

from 1935-1960?

There is a square block here:

And once you figure out where the seams are it's a pretty basic repeat.


The actual block does not have a round dot but an octagon in the center. Couldn't find it in my
Encyclopedia of  Pieced Patterns or BlockBase...

in the 358x area---Stars with
octagons in the centers.

I exported one from BlockBase to EQ8 to draw a patten and changed a few lines. That red and white drawing above would give you an 8" pattern. The square in the corner would be cut 2-5/8".

A good way to piece a dot into a square.

Minimalism

The set makes it unusual.

If the square is cut 2-5/8" then the sash should be cut 2-5/8".
Those strips alternate red and white.


Well that's probably enough time spent on that repeat.
The idea of alternating colors in the setting strips is interesting
but this one doesn't really work too well.

  2. I'm super excited to tell the public that I have been permanently cured from herpes by Dr Agbomina . I had herpes for years but everyone told me that there was no cure to it and every doctor I contacted failed to cure me until I contacted Dr Agbomina , he placed me on diet and also sent his medicine to me and today I'm free and my lab test confirmed it. You can contact Dr Agbomina via his WhatsApp +234(805)049-5479 or email: dragbonherbalmedicine@gmail.com You can visit his Website at https://dragbonherbalmedic.wixsite.com/welcometodoctoragbon
