Small lollipops enhance my quilt top!

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That my sister, struck with cancer for the second time in a year, will have this quilt to hug during her treatments. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try your best to 'square up' your fabric panel before building your quilt around it ... not an easy task!

What you will need

  • Joanna Figueroa's pattern for "Small Lollipops" to embellish my Mary Engelbreit's "A Friend is a Gift You Give Yourself" fabric panel
  • cotton; assorted Mary Engelbreit companion fabric and some from my stash
  • all cotton
  • Mettler silk finish quilting thread in butter yellow
  • cotton batting.

Q&A with MimiSC

quiltingemily asked:
I have been donating quilt to the cancer center too. I hope we can bring some comfort,
MimiSC answered:
I should do more of that type of sewing...I have a few family projects ahead of me to complete, first -- matching dinosaur quilts for my grandsons and a quilt for my other grandson; a quilt for another sister, my daughters, etc. But, I do try to donate one a year -- it is a nice thing to do, and thank you for doing so!
