While poking around on the website of Quiltjane, the woman who designed the Christmas Ribbon Quilt, which I’m currently working on, I found the most adorable and simple pattern for charm packs–the lollipop quilt! I just love its simplicity and the lollipops. I think of them more as very round topiaries.
It uses the lollipop collection for Moda. There are precuts available on ebay, and I was tempted, but ultimately I decided to go with a different fabric line. Mainly because I didn’t like the alphabet-patterned fabric. The fabric was almost appropriate for any age except for the alphabet patterns.
I looked for a fabric family that had enough contrast between the fabrics to keep things interesting. Ultimately, I decided to go with Reindeer Games (which, coincidentally, is by the same designer as Lollipop). The pattern calls for two charm packs for a smaller lap-sized quilt. I’ve ordered two layer cakes, and if my calculations are correct, that should yield enough fabric for a queen-sized quilt top.
I’m looking forward to creating this top. It should be super easy and super cute. Hopefully the fabric colors work out like I think they will. *fingers crossed!*
