Lollipop Spring in JUMP-START YOUR QUILTING


Yeap, Lollipop Spring is the last of my three quilts featured in Jump-Start Your Quilting, edited by Jeanne Stauffer and published by House of White Birches.


This is actually a tablerunner project with “lollipop” flowers appliqued on both ends of the runner.


It is a busy happy quilt.  It is busy because the different busy fabrics I had used for this tablerunner project.  It is happy because one couldn’t help but smile at the bright and cheerfulness of these fabrics.


The fabrics are from Moda‘s Tweet Tweet Collection.  Quilting is done with Aurifil Mako 50 thread, and batting is Hobbs Tuscany Silk.


Some of you have recently asked about Miss Baby.  Incidentally, we have started “school” at our house.  “School” constitutes every bit of five (!) minutes of working on a couple of worksheets after breakfast. :)  But Miss Baby is quite proud of the accomplishments from her 5 minutes of schooling!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope my projects in “Jump-start Your Quilting” will help jump-start your spring projects, whether they be quilting or cleaning. ;)

Lollipop Spring: Final Sneak Peeks

Oh, I have been working, working and working, but I did get a big batch of projects shipped to the editor last week. Lollipop Spring is one of them. I used my trusted little home machine to try to imitate a long-arm look for this whimsical project:

I will be using this eventually to play tea with Baby:

I added a few three-dimensional ladybug buttons to add a little oomph to the whimsical-ness:

Gigantic vs diminutive:

I love love love the backing fabric! These fabrics are from Moda’s Tweet Tweet collection. Now, with a name like “Tweet Tweet”, the fabrics can’t be anything but sweet and cute!

A parting shot of the border:

Thanks for stopping by. I can’t believe it’s Friday already. Nevertheless, I wish you a tweet-ily sweet weekend!

Spring Nesting: Sneak Peek #1

I worked on another small project using Moda’s Tweet Tweet fabrics:

I love my little red-belly “Brown Betty” Birdie:

I hope you are having a good day. I am not out of the woods yet as far as deadlines go. So, I’d better FLY! I shall catch up with you tomorrow. Have yourself a super day, would you?

Whimsical Busy-ness

Top of the morning to you!  I hope you are having a good day.   I have been bus-ily busy working on meeting a mid-May deadline.  One of the projects I worked on these past few days is this:

This project uses the precut fabrics from Tweet Tweet by Moda.  I love the whimsical and fun look of the fabrics.  Now, how about a lollipop to get you through the rest of your day?

Thanks for popping by.  I will see you later!
