Baby Lollypops and Family Photos

Here are a few more of the border baby lollypops for my Lollypop Trees applique quilt. I am out of applique now. I need to prepare some more blocks.
Sondra and Rich came to visit last week and we got a 'family photo' while they were here. So nice to get to see them again since they live so far away now.
Patsi, my sister, came for a visit also! Great photo of her and Sondra.

Cylus' Baby Quilt

It's been a while since I've posted but have mostly been busy doing customer quilts, which sometimes does not leave much time for my own, but what can I say? I have some great customers and beautiful quilts to do!
This is a recent baby quilt I made. Their baby theme was the little animals but done in pastels. I did not want to duplicate their baby quilt so found these colorful fabrics at Sweet Home Quilt Co. in Conyers and put together my own. The neat thing is the panel already has four narrow borders so I added one more and then put the wonky squares as the sashing then the striped border. It was fun to make.
Here is a close up of the quilting. I used a pantograph called Hurricane with a variegated King Tut thread. Click on the picture for a good close up view!
