I love Laurie Shifrin's books.
I especially love this pattern, out of this book.
Mmmmm... love it.
So a couple of Bali Pops later, and...
It's not laid out in it's final order yet. I have to make some more blocks.
But what do you think?
Ok, now I have to tell you that I was hunting for the Bali Pops, and I was calling them Bali, pronounced like "Balley" Pops. I never questioned why they were called that.
Then I went to a quilt shop and asked if they had them, and the very nice woman said, "Oh, the Bolly Pops?" and it dawned on me like a brick to the head.
Oh! BOLLY Pop!
Like LOLLY POP!
Now it makes sense!
We laughed, and I laughed some more at myself for never even questioning what I was calling them.
This is my favorite block.
It looks like a Chinese character in the middle to me.
I thought I wanted the "Green Tea" assortment, but when I saw them in person, I realized that I actually wanted the "Mocha Mint" and the "Cappuccino".
It's a little dark though, maybe I did want that Green Tea after all.
I was making it for a friend of mine, who then said to me, "Don't even give me anything unless it's blue!"
Fine. With that attitude, I'll just give it to someone who will appreciate it!
