Breagha's Lollipop Quilt

It all started with Moda's Lollipop charm packs by Sandy Gervais........I ended up buying 7 of these from Ebay.  I just love this designer and especially loved the Lollipop series.

Then came the decision of how to use the charm packs (and I only ended up using four of them to make this quilt).  I decided on Eleanor Burns "Tossed Nine Patch" pattern which uses five inch squares.

And this is the end result.  A perfect pattern to showcase all the fabrics in this line.  The quilt finished at 54 inches square, a perfect size for little fingers to drag across the floor or for a little person to snuggle under. 

I did not back this quilt in flannel.  I desperately needed a break from the "flannel" backings.  I backed this in a very soft, natural muslin fabric. 

Breagha's little stack of quilts is growing and although she is under the age of 2, it will be interesting to see which quilts will be her favorites as she gets older.  Grandma plans to ensure she has a good collection before that happens.

  1. Beautiful, I love this pattern and the fabric you chose the colors are so vibrant!!! I also love muslin, it is so soft and nice, I used it to line the Rapunzel costume because it is cheap but also because I thought it would feel comfortable for Leanora.

    I love, love this fabric, wonder if I can still get my hands on any. Those charm packs are fabulous aren't they? I bought one that I stretched into two baby quilts and a little patchwork skirt. Is this all done by hand?
