This is my llama Lola. She is at the top of my basement steps to greet me when I get home. I'm not a Barry Manilow fan at all, but she quite frequently has me singing Copacabana. Lola was supposed to go to the Farm Show this summer, but we went on vacation instead. I think she is cute enough to have won a ribbon, though.
The quilt pattern Lloyd & Lola is designed by Elizabeth Hartman. I just love all of her pieced animal patterns. They are definitely fun to make! Below are a few more pictures. She is tall and narrow which makes it difficult to get her all in one pic.
L:ola's blanket is actually a scrap left over from a table runner that I made years ago. Just the right size. It was fun to quilt her curly fur, too.
Since I didn't make Lloyd to keep her company, Lola seemed like she needed something else around her in the quilt. I added some applique flowers and feathers for leaves. I used the Accuquilt Go to cut some of them out.
Thanks for visiting today. I'm linking up over at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. Have a great day!

Lola is just darling and I think she (you) should get a blue ribbon! I can see why she has you singing when you see her, she is adorable.

Lola is adorable. I concur on Barry Manilow; however, Copacabana is the only song of his I kind of like, a little bit.

I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
