I'm a belgian quilter since 16 years, who loves appliqué and the designs of Kim McLean. So about a month ago i was absolutely thrilled to discover i could buy her designs at glorious.com.After receiving them (one of the best days so far this year) i procrastinated what to do and decided to start on lollipops because i figured it would be relatively portable, ideal for vacation and soon to happen trip to Birmingham Festival of quilts. I also decided that allthough i love working with Kaffe's fabrics, i would make it from my existing stash, with fabrics i bought years ago and now can hardly figure out what to do with them since taste and experience have evolved. I see that as my challenge. I'm still sewing my first block(very slowly), because i don't have the time to prepare the second one before leaving for Birmingham. The background fabric was supposed to be a backing (extra wide) but i changed its destiny.
