Polka Dot Bikini Quilt Along + Giveaway

Happy Sunday! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend! I've been trying to relax a bit more than usual after a long week behind me and another coming up.  I'm here today to share with you a new quilt along starting up next month!

I met Sharon McConnell in December 2012 at the very first Camp Stitchalot put on by Pink Castle Fabrics! We sat across from each other in the sewing room all weekend.  While I went back and forth between a multitude of different projects Sharon plugged away on a single quilt. Let me tell you, I was so blown away by it the entire weekend.  You couldn't help but be distracted by the bright and cheerful colors, prints, and design.  Lucky for us, she has just published a pattern for her cool creation, the Polka Dot Bikini Quilt Pattern

To kick off it's release, Sharon is holding a quilt along starting February 6th! She already has a great curved piecing tutorial up here. The schedule is nice and reasonable at about 6 blocks every two weeks, but of course you can sew at your own pace! Follow along on Sharon's blog for all the quilt along action including posts to help put your quilt together, alternative ideas, and giveaways as well! 

You can pick up a copy of the pattern in Sharon's shop, here!

I feel like I could stare at that quilt forever, there is just so much to look at! I hope I can find time to start one soon, even if it's just enough blocks for a wall hanging.  I've already started scheming what fabrics and combinations to use! I think the new Chromatics collection by Art Gallery Studio would be fun with maybe all shades of gray for the solids.  Or maybe my Color Me Retro collection along with an array of green solids! There are so many possibilities, I don't think you could really go wrong! 

Make sure to check out my Art of Choosing series from a few years back for color inspiration and fabric selection advice!

Sharon has kindly offered to give away a copy of the Polka Dot Bikini PDF pattern to two lucky In Color Order readers! Just leave a comment to enter. Tell me what fabrics/colors you'd use if you want! Giveaway will end Wednesday, January 29th at 5pm CST.

Good luck!

  3. I have a bundle of Joel Dewberrry fabrics that would be perfect for this pattern. I want to make a wedding quilt for my son and his fiancee who are getting married in September, but I have been struggling to find a pattern that I liked. I think I have just found it!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  18. I like the bright polka dots and solids, so would probably do something similar to the example shown.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love her quilt and fabric choices so I would probably do the bright polka dots and solids as well. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That is gorgeous! I think I'd go a little scrappy, with maybe some white to keep it all controlled.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love that quilt!!!!! I think I would use Kona solids for the centers and I would have to dig out all my polka dots for the curved pieces. I do LOVE polka dots! This could be the quilt that sets me off my fabric fast!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would use a combination of solids and prints! Haven't really decided which fabrics use yet. those polka dots are colorful!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What an outstanding quilt. I love Sharon color way, and have enough batik scraps to do it. Your choice of fabrics is gorgeous. Can't wait to see you blog about it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have two kona color story bundles (aqua and purple), so I would probably play with those.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have a fat quarter bundle of polka dots that would be perfect for this quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is a stunning quilt! wowwwwww!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love this quilt! I'm on a solid kick...so I'd probably do pink and orange solids. I haven't done curves yet...but I love they way they look.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'd probably go with blenders or solids, but I'm still really intimidated by curves.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, that's an impressive pattern! I'd go with solids or nearly solid blenders, I think. But first I'd have to work on doing curves!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is such a fun quilt, I love all the curves. I would make it with a bunch of solids and then bright scraps I think.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oooh... look at all that curved piecing! I think I might do it in teals and greys, Konas of course!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just bought some new polka dot fat quarters that would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would want to make my quilt look just like hers...lots of brights and polka dots....would be a good time to dig thru the stash...

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've been collecting dots and Kona solids. Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh gosh! So beautiful! I'd probably try to use lots of brights like you have!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really love curves, so this pattern is great. I think I would do something a bit scrappy in a rainbow of colors instead of just using one line. That way I can incorporate some of my favorite fabrics from various designers.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would use oval elements for the "polka-dot" areas

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a beautiful pattern! I think I would use blask & white fabrics with a gray for the arches. Maybe Little Black Dress II..

    It also would be pretty in different solids with black arches. Oh, the choices! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Whoo wee! This would be a tough decision. Most likely solids and Kaffe fabrics would be spectacular. Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just love this quilt as it is. So I'd do something very similar to Sharon's

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would do it in red/black/white/grey/aqua/yellow. What a pretty quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow no matter what I pick I would never be able to improve on the original it is amazing! I know I would use bright colors maybe neons.

    ReplyDelete
  43. WOW! What a beautiful quilt!!! I think I would use aqua, dark blue, purple and red violet.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the pattern - saw it on facebook this morning and it actually took my breath away as I stopped to stare at it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've had this pattern up on my Safari page for awhile! Love it! I would probably use the same brights she did....I'm not very good at coloring outside the lines yet.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Gorgeous pattern! Just the motivation I would need to work on my curved piecing skills!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Beautiful quilt. I'd use different shades of blue and grey with orange or hot pink accents. Great bold colors. Great giveaway.Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  48. the original quilt looks great. I would love to remake it in that style. Dots in contrast to solids. It's sooo great! Probably in a colourful (lots of different colors) way but how knows. Maybe a more specific colour combination come to mind later - but definitly dots to solids. Huge!

    ReplyDelete
  49. that quilt is amazing!!!!!!!! I'm not sure what fabrics I'd use. normally that's the easy part, but with such an incredible Patten, choosing fabrics that would do the original justice would be pretty difficult!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love the beautiful bright colors of this quilt. I love the Seaside line from October Afternoon and would love to see it in those colors.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I saw this on her blog and about fell over with how beautiful itis. I'm not sure what I would use, but she nailed the colors so well, I think I'd stick with them

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love the colors she used on her quilt!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am wanting to try some "low volume" colors and I'm thinking they would be really pretty in this quilt. On the other hand, I love the bright colors! And I love the curves in this quilt! Color is what inspires me when I quilt and sew so I love your blog, Jeni!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love the colours, fun and cheery on a grey winter day!! This will be lots of fun to quilt along!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. That is suce a gorgeous quilt. I love the colours used, but don't know if I am brave enough to try it. I would probably go for blues and greens with flashes of orange red and yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love this quilt! I have been hoarding my polka dots for the "perfect" polka dot quilt...this could be it!


    ReplyDelete
  57. I like your bright colors so much. I'd maybe add a bit of orange.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  64. In my stash I have a bunch of bright colored fabrics, New Mexico style, and some Kona solids. I'd have to add some dotty fabric, though, probably some Riley Blake dots.

    ReplyDelete
  65. What a beautiful eye catching quilt!! I think I would have to go scrappy due to my fabric fast, but the new collection of Lecien dots sure would be gorgeous! Thanks for the chance to win this beauty.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Gorgeous quilt! I have been using up small scraps by making monochromatic "made fabric" squares. I'd use them in your design with white and light gray arcs and then add whatever it needed (love the dots!). Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I think the colors with the polka dots and elements set aside the gorgeous quilting done, Makes this quilt what it is.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think this quilt would look amazing in Amy Butler's Hapi fabric...or Kaffe prints would be fabulous...so gorgeous! Would love to win the pattern!

    caribousmom (at) gmail (dot) com

    ReplyDelete
  69. If I was making this, I would probably use turquoise/orange/yellow/white/grey. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  70. that quilt is a masterpiece! if I could summon the gumption to take on this pattern, I think I'd try for low volume solids with patterns in only a few colors - like red and teal!

    ReplyDelete
  71. wow what a stunning design. Im not sure about fabrics...maybe solids in rainbow colors with some black would look awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  72. totally love it, i would use Lottie da

    ReplyDelete
  73. That is such a great quilt! Picking fabrics is the hardest part for me, so I'd probably spend awhile staring at all the choices at the LQS. Color Me Retro would be fabulous, as I haven't gotten a chance to play with those yet.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'd use gray as the neutral with pops of bright color, including lots of dots. Love this quilt and thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Fabulous quilt!
    I'd love to do a rainbow/dotty version!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I www old like to see this quilt in AMH and solids

    ReplyDelete
  77. this just may be the vehicle needed to help me with my curves - both sewing and cutting. I think I would work with a minimum of colors, mostly solids and a pop of print where needed - like red, white and blue, or red, pink, white and maroon....something like that

    ReplyDelete
  78. My niece would love to have a quilt like this, and pink is her favorite color, so I think I would use a lot of pinks for the solids, and dots in a rainbow of colors.

    ReplyDelete
  79. i'm having a hard time resisting another project, but this one keeps tempting me, maybe i'll be lucky and get the pattern then i will have no other choice but to jump in, wishing myself luck lolololol thanks for the chance

  82. such a beautiful quilt! I would use bright colors in my quilt just like the one shown!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I really love the placement of the solids and prints in this quilt. I love it as-is but I'm not a big pink fan, so I suppose I'd dig out prints from my stash and pull out solids that coordinate.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Wow, that is a spectacular quilt! I also love bright colors and would love to make it in aqua, lime, orange and yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  85. What a beautiful quilt…love those bright colors!!!

  86. I think I'd want to make it in subtler shades or tints of the colours used in this version. what a fantastic design!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I adore all of the colors, but the purples are really jumping out at me. They would be great with a grey accent.

  92. Ohh! Pretty! I've never felt the desire to piece curves before, but I would love to piece these ones. I have the blue/green bundle of Kona solids that I've been saving for just the right project. They'd be perfect for this. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Sharon's quilt absolutely blew me away the first time I saw it! It is still an inspiration whenever I see pictures. I love that she used quite a lot of solids and so know I'd include them. I do love the bright colors but don't know where I'd go after the solids.

    ReplyDelete

  176. I love this pattern! I don't know how you got any sewing done at all that weekend. I would use bright colors like hers, but probably from my stash as I'm on a fabric diet!

  177. I can make this quilt from my stash!!! I have enough polka dots for everyone who comments here too! I would love to win that pattern so I can use the 'dots' stash I've been hoarding just for this project! I have all the solids I need too!! Now if I could only 'find' backing somewhere.......it would be a 'free 99' quilt!! kristensmithks@yahoo.com

  183. There are so many polka dot ranges now I'm not sure which I'd choose - but I adore polka dots so would definitely use them.

  185. I have been saving dot fabric forever and would definitely dig into that stash. I have also a bunch of 1/2 cut yards of Kona cottons that may work in as well.

  187. What a gorgeous quilt! I'd love to make it in Quiet Time, Tamara Kate's new line for Michael Miller. Her Freckles would make great "polka dot bikinis!"

  188. I would have to go to a quilt shop and ask for assistance in choosing what to use or I would pick some fabrics and ask them if it work. I'm just never confident about my choices
