You thought I forgot, didn't you

As you can see, I finally finished my Lollipops. It already hang at a local craft exhibition.
I spent an incredible amount of time thinking about how to quilt it. In the end, I just opted to machinequilt around the shapes.
I changed the way the binding was done, because from the very start that small line around the quilt bothered me. I feel it didn't fit all the squares and the busy quilt. So I added rectangles instead of squares at the exterior and used those to finish of the quilt. I have to admit the upper one does have a tendancy to faint but I can live with that, since the quilt is meant to be used.
I am very happy with how it turned out.
And thinking of which one to make now, since I enjoyed it so much.

Have fun,

  1. what an accomplishment! I am so proud of you. It's absolutely beautiful...

  2. Congratulations on your lovely finish! The red is really wonderful!

  3. Beautiful, Francoise! I'm reminded again how much I like your choice of the red background and how stronger colors can end up feeling like a "neutral."

  4. It is gorgeous, Francoise! Love the border you used.

  5. Congratulations - your quilt is Gorgeous!

  6. Well done Francoise!! It is looking great, the red background is an excellent choice. And I'm glad the quilt is going to be used, sweet dreams under it, cheers, K

  7. Beautiful! It glows. I have a question: do you know where I can buy the pattern in Europe? I live in Portugal and would prefer to order the pattern locally, in order to avoid excessive customs fees and postage. Thank you. Alexandra
