Lollipops And Bubblegum

Hello Everyone,

My Total Eclipse top is complete!! However, I have renamed it "Lollipops and Bubblegum". I think it is quite appropriate, don't you?

So today when the temperatures were topping out at 108 fahrenheit, I took Lollipops and Bubblegum outside for a photo shoot.


Even though it was hot, there was definitely good lighting.


All the bright colors just bring a smile to my face.


I hope the colors do the same for you.


If you were wondering what I decided to do with the bottom circle, take a look at the right side of the photo. I divided it in half. Half orange and half purple, but chose to divide it top to bottom instead of side to side. I thank all of you for your opinions, I read each and every one!


Of course, I had to hang it on the wall. Then I quickly scooped it up and went inside to the coolness of the air conditioning. Who knew that you could work up a sweat with a photo shoot of a quilt?

I have the perfect binding for this quilt... wait until you see!

PS... Don't forget to enter my giveaway at Heather and Megan's blog!

Until Next Time...

I love the quilt and the "new" name! So bright and colorful. I was watering my plants yesterday in the early evening and a little pickerel frog peered out from under one of them-- I ran inside to get my camera and when I came back out, I couldn't take the picture b/c my camera totally fogged over due the change in temp from the cool A/C inside to the heat outside! Did that happen with your camera?

Love that pattern.. looks difficult, but I love it. Now, it is all YOUR fault that I have to go to the fabric store today after looking at that.. (That is the excuse I'm using today.. and I'm sticking with it).
