Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Polka Dots

I Heart Polka Dots --  how did you know that I love polka dots??Diddly spots 
polka knots
shiny watts
Mommy nots 
puppy dots
and summer hots.

Did you play rhyming games as a child?  I didn't but then I had my own children. 

pretty polka dotted backpack for $25They were subjected to all manner of play, poor darlings.  In the game above--we called it Diddly Dots--each player comes up with rhyming words along a theme, but with one that rhymes but doesn't fit the theme.  

Dot to Dot Polka Dot Towels - Garnet HillIt's a game that takes a long time because coming up with the words is not easy.  Can you figure out the theme? How about figuring out what each rhyme means?  Sometimes we just made them rhyme and played with the sounds.  Of course, my boys grew out of this game very early.  I extended those years a little by playing the games differently, such as coming up with the rhymes and letting the boys figure out the meaning. Eventually the word games just went away, then the grandchildren started coming!
Yay! for grandies!

Enough of memory lane.  Here are the polka dots I promised in the title.
