It's done -- and I'm thrilled

It's done! Since it took four years to piece and applique it, I am taking the position that I have four years to get up the courage to put it on my longarm. I cannot even begin to think about how I will quilt this.

Here's what I know -- every single element will need to be outlined with invisible thread and then the background and some of the petals, leaves, and circles will have to quilted or enhanced.  I cannot even think about that right now!

Thank you, Kim McLean, for such a great pattern (Lollypop) and use of color!

I hope you are finishing a few things occasionally. It does feel good!

OMG, what a fabulous quilt and all finished. You are amazing. If I had to make one, it would take triple the time you did. Two thumbs up!!!

Such a nice balance of color and scrappiness. I can't help but smile when I see it.

I saw a quilt made from this pattern at a quilt show a year ago. I loved it then and I love yours now!

What an accomplishment--it's a stunning quilt. I would not use invisible thread though. Use white, which I think is your background color. Stipple or echo quilt as much as you can and that's all you'll need. This will show off the appliqué as the 'star'.
