Gumdrops Quilt

about 400 scraps to make the gumdrops
pretty boarder
lots of stitching
backing and binding
400 gumdrops scraps, 800metres of cotton to stitch around each gumdrop and a whole lot of coffee went into creating the top for Lucy's new quilt. We had fun picking the scraps together and on my weekend retreat (a few weeks back) I put it all together. It is probably the most unsociable quilt I have ever made as I had to concentrate whilst appliqueing the gumdrops onto the background. Forget the wine for dinner too !

The pattern is from the gorgeous Sunday Morning Quilts book. I want to make nearly all the quilts in this book.

Now I just have to put it all together and work out a less time consuming way to quilt this one.


  1. Oh these are so cute!!! I cannot wait to see how you quilt it, all that white open space means endless possibilities. ;)
