Thanks so much for sharing your process!


What a thoughtful and wonderful way to work. I may have to give your ideas a try!


LOVE your red background!

I used the Perfect Circles for my Lollypop Quilt, using a yoyo circle method to form them (I slip the plastic circle out when it's ironed and finished).

I'm liking the red--I used a more traditional background for my quilt. I chose to only use 12 blocks, keeping them large, because you're right--that's a LOT of quilt if all blocks are used at full size. I also made my own Lolly block, using the 1880s quilt as inspiration and put it into Christmas colors, on a Kona red background.

And you have hit on the Big Secret: Make all (or as many as you can) blocks at once. I pinned them on, using applique pins, hung the pinned-up blocks by a skirt hanger in my closet, and then ended up taking my time to stitch them when I could. It's that design step which takes ages. . . and totally messes up the studio!

I'll keep following to see how things go--they look so beautiful now!

whee, so much fun!


I love to see your progress with this fabulous project!


Your red background is inspired and I love the more graphic impact of the perfect circles with your prints. This is going to be a beauty!


I just love everything you create! May I ask what color red your using?


Your blocks are beautiful! And the fussy cutting just takes it over the top!!


Thanks for sharing, the color choice, the pictures and the writing,very beautiful.


Wow -- I just love these blocks. Thanks so much for sharing your process. I must admit, I'm having just a teeny bit of trouble believing that it's not time consuming LOL. Your sense of color is so fabulous -- that's the part that gives me the most trouble. Beautiful Work Jan!


Thank you for sharing your process - your blocks are so vibrant. Gorgeous!
