This is a page about Elizabeth’s Lollypop Trees, a Kim McLean quilt pattern. I’ve tagged all the entries Lollypop Trees; type that into the Search Box at the right, if you want to “gather” up all the posts and read through them in one sitting. I’ve left this page here as I used to search the web for ideas for color and quilting when I was making it, and think having this as a resource might be helpful.

This one is on pink-checkered fabric.
Yellow checkered background. Total Circles Count: 75.
I’ve designed my own version of a Lollypop Block, based on the earlier 1880s design, and teach it in a class.
This is the Christmas version with a sawtooth border.
This version is a plain 20″ block, and could make a great pillow top.
FINISHED BLOCKS, in no particular order (showing quilting).
