Lollipop Tree block #1



prepped and ready to be stitched.

It wasn't easy!  Although I've worked with Kaffe Fasett fabrics before it was in a different context, for a different sort of project.  Now I had to look at them in a new way, to try to see new things.  New color combinations.  Fussy cutting is fun, but....I like surprises too and just letting the quilt happen.  So lots to think about as to the approach to this quilt.  Still not sure about the peach large leaves.....

When all the pieces were complete and I saw the block in its entirety, I decided to glue the pieces down rather than to baste them onto the background.  The leaves are pre-basted, and for the circles I used Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles.

At least I'm ready for Saturday's Bee.
Now back to my clamshells....

I glue baste also instead of stitch basting. Pretty colors!

It looks great! I like the peach leaves--they bring out the other colors.

I like the peach leaves but then it's not my quilt and you're the one who has to be happy with it. Are you going to stitch the pieces down at the Bee? I'm not generally a brights kinda girl but I like this!!!
