I've been following this group since it started and have enjoyed every post, watching all of your gorgeous quilts develop, block by block. The Lollypop design has long been my favorite and once we got past the holidays, I decided to finally jump in. I confess that I've been a little obsessed by Francoise's version on the red background since she first posted. After careful consideration of several red solids, I found one that worked well with many of the contemporary Japanese prints that I've added to my stash over the last few years. Although the value of the red is a challenge to work with, I am thoroughly enjoyed this project. In fact, I'm a bit addicted!
Yesterday I finished my second block. I have reduced the size of my blocks to 15½" so choosing prints with appropriate scale has been a challenge, with so many little pieces. I guess this is what stash is for! I've written a bit more about my blocks in several blog posts and hope to continue to update here (and there) as I continue.
