Karen's Popsicle 🍭 Sticks

Quilt Info:
Maker: Karen of Barnabas Ministries
Pattern: Popsicle Sticks by Atkinson Designs
Size: 80" X 96"
Batting: Quilters Dream Batting 80/20 Natural
Thread: Glide--Tar Heel
Quilting: Ba Da Bing
Interesting Info: Karen made this quilt for her 7 year old grandson. It will be a Christmas present, so she's way ahead of the game! 

This edge-to-edge design adds great texture! It's called "Ba Da Bing", imitating the sound of a drum roll after a comedian has told a joke.

For backing, Karen used this colorful print called "Smashing Atoms 108"!

Wonderful work, Karen! You're making many fabulous quilts!  
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. I love everything about this quilt. The backing is a fun surprise. Bright colors are my "happy place" when quilting, and this one sure is happy. Great job!

  2. She did a great job and the quilting is once again perfect for the design.

  3. What a fantastic quilt. Love the colors, and the backing is perfect. Very cool quilting pattern, too. The kid is going to love that quilt!

  4. Cheerful quilt, I love the backing too ;) You did a lovely quilting on it, perfect pattern, with a fun name!
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful work at Patchwork & Quilts link party.

  5. Bright and happy! This will certainly be a hit. Great quilting design choice. That backing is fun and surely an easier one to quilt ;-)

  6. Just look at all those fun prints that are singing more because of the great texture you quilted in.

  7. I love the bright fabrics on the quilt top, and the backing fabric is just perfect with all its zing. The quilt design is a favorite of mine. Beautiful quilting, Nancy!

  8. The quilting design is PERFECT for this quilt -- I love the contrast of linear piecing with curved quilting lines, plus those rays that go out from the quilted swirls echo the backing print. Great job! Do you bind your clients' quilts as well as quilting them? Also curious -- how did you get that little lollipop picture in your blog post title?! You are just FULL of cool tricks!

  9. This is such a fun quilt for a child, so bright and colourful. Love the backing too.
    Great edge to edge design - lots of movement and interest with that one.

  10. Popsicle Sticks - what a FUN name for a quilt!! Made me smile as soon as I read it. The quilt is vibrant and fun, and the quilting design is SO perfect for this quilt. Thanks for sharing it on MCM.

  11. Karen's grandson is going to love this quilt! The backing fabric is perfect! Your quilting Nancy is the perfect compliment!
