I've been collecting photos of quilts with dots. I've quickly found out what not to do if you are going to make a quilt with dots.
Forget about red dots. The quilt above from the Skinner online auction site illustrates the problem. The mid- 19th-century friendship quilt makes me itch.
This one's probably early 20th century.

These quilts unfortunately remind me of the chicken pox.
Something I saw entirely too much of when I taught kindergarten before the vaccine.
An idea I drew up in EQ but one I am going to forget about.
