Lollypop Trees Top Finished

This is an exciting day for me.  Last night I finished the top of my
Lolly Pop Trees applique quilt..



These are not the best pictures but the quilt is so large I am having a difficult time finding a place to photograph it.  I decide to photograph one fourth of the quilt at a time.

It really looks impressive in person.  The pattern isn't difficult just a lot of it and I can't believe I actually finished it.  Most of it was needle turn with some freezer paper applique on the really large pieces.


My first post about LollyPop Trees was October 2010 so it took me 14 months working intermittently to complete.

Happy stitching,
Nancy
