Here’s my Christmas version of Tula Pink’s “Lolly” quilt. This pattern can be found in the book, Dear Quilty by Mary Fons and Team Quilty.
Tula Pink used 2 1/2 inch jelly roll strips from one of her fabric lines when she made the quilt in the book. I cut up fabric which had been donated to our quilt guild, scraps I had from making dog bandanas and other scraps that were odds and ends from some other of my projects.
The cutting took rather a long time, but sewing this quilt was surprisingly easy. I thought it would be hard to get all the bars in the blocks to match but they lined up beautifully.
I quilted using straight line quilting, using my walking foot, following the blocks. The vertical stitching is in the ditch between each block. The horizontal quilting is 1/8 in on one side of each of each strip running across the blocks. It only took about 2 hours to do all the quilting!
This quilt will be donated, along with other quilts made by our guild, to be given to children and teens in the hospital at Christmas time. I really had a lot of fun making the quilt.
This is the end of series on quick charity quilts. But I had some orphan blocks so you may see a few doll quilts later this fall!
