Sweet Treats Progress and Dotty Request

It has been a few weeks since any progress has been made on my polka dot "Sweet Treats" quilt.  
I have the inside of the top pieced and have just finished trimming up all the remaining cornerstone blocks. 
My next decisions will be about the borders, which is usually the "kiss of death" for a quilt at my house...it starts the slow march toward the UFO closet!
You can probably guess that this project is going on the back burner, because I have started another polka dot quilt for the Dot to Dot blog hop next month. I am so excited to be a part of the blog hop and have started to make a new quilt for the occasion. 
If you have a 2" or 3.5" strip of a dotty fabric that you would like me to use in my new dotty quilt, I would love to include it! Just email me for my snail address.
The more variety I have, the better. A big thanks to Janet who has already sent me some of her polka dot scraps, which will be in both of these quilts!

    Sweet Treats is such an amazing quilt. I hope it doesn't make it to the UFO closet.

  2. Oh Kathy! I bet I can find a strip or two to help you out! :) Send me the addy :)

    And I have RESISTED the blog hop; there is NO WAY I could keep up with the start of school right around the corner. But I'll enjoy watching your participation in it.
