Wasn't there a commercial for Lifesaver Lollypops a few years ago? It seems to ring in my head when I type lollypops. My friend, Ille Waters and I decided to take on a giant applique project a little over a year ago. It is available at Glorious Color and is called Lollypop Trees by Kim McLean. It is mostly using Kaffe Fassett fabrics which we really like and we have done a lot of examining the pictures to make ours look very close to the designer's quilt. This is 'Block 8', according to our numbering, but we've skipped around so actually I have 9 completed! Over half........however there are many little blocks in the border with applique, too.
I do not hurry my applique by hand. I just take it stitch by stitch, relax in my chair with my Ott light beaming down on my work. Sondra had a lapboard she was giving away after college and I took it and it has been wonderful for when I do applique to give me a little table.
Just wanted to share this block.............many many circles. I love all the different fabrics and colors coming together!
