Elizabeth’s Lollypop Trees Quilt

I’m starting to work on Kim McLean’s Lollypop Trees quilt, one block at a time.  I’ve tagged all the entries Lollypop Trees;  type that into the Search Box, if you want to “gather” up all the posts and read through them in one swoop.  Or one sitting.

UPDATE: At the end of this page, you’ll find the finished quilt and individual shots of the finished blocks, showing the free-motion quilting.

I’ve designed my own version of a Lollypop Block, based on the earlier 1880s design.

This is the Christmas version with a sawtooth border.

Lollypop Block

This version is a plain 20″ block, and could make a great pillow top.

  1. I love the way you fussy cut, especially the rosebud on top of block three. Each block is so beautiful. How do you applique all the circles? Whatever the method, I’m sure it takes a loooooong time. Thanks for posting them. Smiles, Bert

  2. When you were sewing each block did you use a hoop or what did you use when you aplique such a big block. I’m having trouble finding the right hoop to use because the block is so big or did you machine applique the blocks. Anyhelp would be appreciated.

  3. I am going to make this one. I have all my Kaffe fabrics collected, now to purchase the pattern and background. I love seeing how you did your backgrounds. Makes me think I can use what I have already. Thank you for sharing. Now I just need to find somewhere to purchase the pattern.
