Popsicle Summer Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!



Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a lap size Popsicle Summer quilt, a fun churn dash variation.


This quilt was a Craftsy kit I bought several years ago on an amazing sale.  It languished in my fabric closet until I listed it for sale as a made-to-order quilt in my Etsy shop.  Nothing like getting a quilt finished because someone has purchased it!


I have recently seen a lot of the Bread Basket quilting design on quilts and thought it was so modern and gave great texture to the quilts.  I wasn't after a flower look, and that's what it ended up because I didn't shrink down the design enough.  The digital download recommended 5" - 9", and I made it 4.5" when it really should have been 3" or even less to get the modern textured look.  Quilt and learn!


My customer wanted a really thick cotton batting, and Quilters Dream Supreme Loft was the thickest I could find.  It is amazing stuff friends!  It is so thick that I thought it was doubled over on itself, but it wasn't!  It costs nearly double what the standard cotton Hobbs Heirloom batting costs, so I won't be using it on a regular basis, but it now rivals wool batting for what I put in quilts for my family.  It's just that good.

I love the layout of the Popsicle Summer quilt. The bright colors stand out just enough from the low volume hues.

Your quilting looks good and so does the quilt! I can't see the linkup so I don't know if it's just my computer or it's not working.
