Lollypop Trees

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.

Yellow checkered background.  Total Circles Count: 75.

And here is the finished quilt top:

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

Christmas Lollypop Tree Wallhanging

This is the Christmas version with a sawtooth border.

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
