3Cs Quilt Along Row 2... and Feeling Groovy

Hi Everyone,

Ready for Row 2? This is the easiest of them all... I think it took me 10 minutes including cutting...

PS. Check the bottom of the post for a little sneaky peek of something else I am working on today.

1. Cut an 8 1/2 inch by WOF strip From your background fabric.
.

2. Subcut your strip into:
    2-  3 3/4" by 8 1/2" rectangles
    5- 7" by 8 1/2" rectangles 
(this is all I had left after the sub-cutting of my strip... just so you know you may have to cut an extra strip if your fabric is a bit narrow)


3. Cut one 2 1/2" strip trim to 42 1/2" in length


4. Cut 6- 1" by 8 1/2" rectangles of the fabric you are using for your lollipop sticks. (I love dots... in case you didn't already know that)

Here are all of your pieces for this row

 5. Using a 1/4 inch seam sew your back ground rectangles and stick rectangles in this order:


Press toward the sticks

6. Sew the 2 1/2 inch strip to the bottom of the sticks and the lollipop tops to the top of the sticks.

Voila! Your first two rows are done and you have lollipops!


Here is a little sneak peak of something I am working on today... Are you Feeling Groovy?
