Lollypop Trees Block One

Hi everyone! How's your Saturday? I slept late (8 AM!) so am getting around slowly. It's a peaceful, beautiful day and I give thanks to God for that! Thought I'd post another block that fell out of the UFO basket the other night. I should say, one of the UFO baskets. It's for the Lollypop Tree quilt.

The backgrounds for this quilt will be solids. This is from the pattern by Kim McLean. This is one of the least "busy" blocks-lol. I started this quilt because I have so many little scraps from all my projects that can be used. There are a ton of circle shapes in this quilt. Here is the pattern so that you can see:

As you can see, just perfect for scraps! I'm going to have to do a couple more blocks pretty soon because my scraps are getting out of control. I just hate throwing away scraps that are 2" x 2" or bigger and they are perfect for this quilt. 

What are you all doing this weekend? I could get so much more done if I didn't have to work! This weekend I'm kitting up 2 queen size Farmer's Wife quilts for a lovely lady in Canada so I'll be cutting and cutting. Then, I'm going to try to get some of my "pesky real job" work done and do some washing. We'll see how that goes. I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday and that you get to do some sewing! XO and cheery wave from Bev

LOVE your version of the Lollypop Trees. The solid backgrounds will give it a clean look behind all of your wondrous scraps.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH - THIS is DELIGHTFUL!!!!! I'm interested like Billie, if it will be needle turned? Absolutely SCREAMS whimsy and FUN!

Mom just left for home today, and I dropped by my mailbox on the way to the airport, to find SUCH a beautiful gift of fabric and three adorable little buttons waiting for me. Will be doing a blog post about it when I catch up on a little rest...glad you got to sleep in so late today - hoping for that myself tomorrow. Happy Sunday, Bev - thanks again - you ROCK! So does the Lollypop Tree!

Not sure what I will do today as I finished my wristwatch quilt yesterday, maybe quilt the vomit quilt next or it might be nice just to makes some more hexies to add to the stash!

I thought I had died and gone to Heaven when I first saw the Lollypop Tree quilts and patterns. Like applique on steroids, but so-o beautiful Alas, I don't applique. But, I can wish. Good for you Bev, it looks great already.

Thank you for the beautiful gift of flag fabric. I'm in love with the buttons. (Doesn't take much for me to get excited.)Thanks again. Stephani in N. TX (
