My design for Dot Code was simple, I wanted to encourage color play, and more importantly, I wanted
Quilters to explore the working powers of Value. I found the motif of a simple half ‘circle’ combination very
intriguing in its simplicity. I thought that if I made construction of the block simple, Makers could
concentrate their efforts on playing with the interaction of Light, Medium, and Dark Values.
This pattern is written for three blocks:
– The Large 12” finished pieced Chunky Block.
– The Small 6” finished pieced Crunchy Block.
– The Medium 8” finished appliqué Creamy Block.
These Blocks can be mixed together in an endless array as you will see. Two Crunchy Blocks can match up
to one side of a Chunky Block, and three Creamy Blocks will match up to two Chunky Blocks or four Crunchy
Blocks. There are suggestions at the end for layouts, but they are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Once you start,
the options will keep flowing!
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,
The only requirement is that you have a mix of Light, Medium and Dark Fabrics. Your overall project size will
depend on how many blocks you make and how you go about arranging your blocks.
