How About a Lollipop?

Market is 3 weeks away and my "to do" list is 4 weeks long. Yikes - I am not sure how this is going to work.
Sleepless nights I am guessing.

My new market line Lollipop arrived last week.

So I called in the troops to whip up the quilts.
Lori, Sandy and Lois, all still in the same positions
that you saw them in when I blogged about the last market.

A sneak peek of the panel.
This line features fun bright colors such as:

Orange and Vanilla

Lime and Cherry

Banana, Chocolate and Blueberry.

Snippets of a few of the quilts that the girls have made using this fabric.

If any of you are going to Sample Spree at market,
Moda will be selling a kit of this quilt.
It is made using a Lollipop Charm Pack™..
The kit will include a
Charm Pack™, pattern, backing and buttons.
It's pretty cute if I do say so myself.
It might just be worth the cuts and bruises
you may receive during the Sample Spree mayhem.

If you are a shop owner, you will be able to view this fabric at the Moda booth. Book you appointment now.
If you are not a shop owner and you like this fabric - please let your shop owner know and she just might buy it for you. This fabric will ship in October.

Looking forward to seeing some of you at market. Market is in Minneapolis this year - 3 hours from here.
Gotta love it. What's the nicest thing about it being so close? No not the short drive.

When I leave my purse someplace (and I will)
the farthest away it could possibly be, would be 3 hours.
With such a short distance one could just drive back and pick it up -
as opposed to leaving it in Oklahoma - 12 hours away.
Yes, nice to have market so close.

See some of you soon - way too soon.

From my heart,


  1. Looks like lollipop is another great fabric line of yours!!! I have a lot of your fabrics and love all them!! I am working on a quilt using your objects of desire fabric...I have essence, gobble gobble, pumpkins gone wild, L'amore....and probably more. I finished a quilt with the red, white and bold last week and have 4 posts on my blog about it. Good luck on getting everything done before market!!

  2. I love Lollipop!!! The monkey and the fish are adorable.

  3. Have fun at market. I love Lollipop! I can't wait for it to come out. And I'm excited for the new little Lillipop pattern with the flowers.

  4. Oh fun!~ did I see an alligator in there? :-))

  5. cute! i love the dark browns and blacks that you've used in your last few lines. very nice contrast to the bright colors!

  6. Lollipop looks gorgeous cant wait till they come over to oz!!

  7. Lollipop is beautiful. Can't wait to see your finished project. Just found your blog and have become a follower.

  8. Oh I love these bright happy colors grounded with the darker tones!

    Just lovely.

    Maybe you should whip up one of those pouch purses...then you wouldn't leave it behind!

    Awesome work.

  9. I hit send too fast. I wanted to see how your Mom was faring?

  10. I'm loving the look of Lollipop and may have to go after one of those quilt kits at sample spree!

  11. Another great line! I probably have more of your fabrics than any other designer. Love the lollipops! How's your mom? Now we have Gudrun's husband to be pulling for, too.

  12. Adorable! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

  13. Beautiful, adorable, fantastic, fun, whimsical.......I can't wait to get my hands on it!! Thanks again for such wonderful fabric!

  14. I totally love these fabrics. I just purchased Frolic last week and loving all of the line.

  15. Wow, you have been busy! Hope your progress toward Market is exceeding your timetable. I love the panel with the monkey on the bicycle, so fun!

  16. It looks wonderful! I can't wait to see it at market!

  17. Ahhh! I can't keep up! Sandy, it is just recently that I found your fabrics and I love e-v-e-r-y o-n-e of them. I bought a couple bins of various fabric at a garage sale because I LOVE pumpkins and found some adorable pumpkin fabric I needed :). Then, a couple weeks later on vacation I came across your Frolic line and picked a quilt pattern and purchased all that the pattern required (a big step for me, because I usually purchase in portions, and then can't find what I want). I got home and looked you up and found that the pumpkin fabric I love from the garage sale is part of your Gobble Gobble line! Then I see Adoring surface at my local shops (which I'll admit I adore, but not as much as your fall-colored lines) so it's no surprise I can't get enough of Awesome, and now I'm thinking of something I can make with Lollipop; I haven't even taken Frolic from its bag in order to use it... I can't keep up! Now, I look over these comments and see you have a line called Pumpkins Gone Wild??! I need to find it. Thanks for designing such wonderfulness. I don't know how to express to you how much I love your style. I've got to keep up with you, but don't know that I can. I love your fabrics! Thanks!
