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...
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.
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.
