About Us

Lollipops Quilt Shop is the home of Lollipops® Designer Bindings, a small US manufacturer of bias binding notions for the quilting and sewing industry. Owner Laurie Malm developed Lollipops® bindings as a time saving method for the modern quilter.
Laurie originally worked as an engineer for 25 years before a life-changing event occurred that resulted in her leaving engineering – her oldest son, US Army Sgt. W. Eric Rodman, left to serve in the Iraq War. After nearly six months of silence, she finally heard from him and he asked her to make him and the men in his unit ‘some quilt things’ so they could use them at night. She, along with a few other women from a Savannah, GA quilt guild, made 39 quilts for the 101st Airborne’s 2nd Cavalry Unit just before Christmas in 2003. 

The idea to start a business making high quality ready-made binding came to her as she listened to her fellow quilters complain about the time consuming task of making bias binding. The engineer in her saw the possibility of making a unique new product, the Lollipop. The rest is history! Since those first quilts were made, Sgt. Rodman has served two additional tours of duty in Iraq, and each time Laurie and her quilting friends (many of whom have had active duty husbands, sons, daughters and dads) have made quilts for her son’s unit, to honor their service.

After many years of travelling to quilt shows around the world and teaching her methods, Laurie and her sister, Mary Davis, fulfilled a life long dream of opening a business together - and in 2013 opened Lollipops Quilt Shop in beautiful Amelia Island, FL. We are a friendly, modern style shop that offers quick tools and techniques to beginners as well as experienced quilters alike. It is our joy to see beautiful quilts come from our helping our customers create magic with a sewing machine and fabrics from every major design house. Come see us and we'll help you, too!

   
Welcome to Moda’s Stitch Pink Quilt Along (QAL) Oct 2020!

Each day during the month of October, we will post a new block
for you to download and make in honor of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month.

The incredible creators at Moda designed a beautiful sampler quilt
that you can make for a 💗 one that is currently fighting her battle with breast cancer; for a friend who you wish to encourage; for a local charity that you want to donate the quilt to, to raise $$ for the fight against breast cancer.

 For me, cancer ♋️ Has become deeply personal - with a very good friend of mine not only recently overcoming uterine cancer, but now dealing with breast cancer.   I am making this quilt on her behalf to donate for auction for the breast cancer cause.

As many of you know, my shop closed earlier this year when I announced my retirement...however, we closed earlier than I had hoped because of the Covid.  I continue to sell online and through FB Lives twice a month to sell down the last of my stock...

When I saw this quilt from Moda, I just knew this was a great program for October...so I will create my own version using all the pinks we have left over from our shop - and there are a lot - because I 💕 pink!



Each day I will post MY version of the Moda Grunge block - because while I love Grunge - and who doesn’t? (Mary, my sister, fellow quilter and former business owner RIP thought it looked dirty when I first brought it in to the shop - next thing I knew she was selling it to everyone lol!)...
I also like 🌸 and prints and so my blocks will have Kaffe, Tula, Art Gallery, Pat Bravo, some Grunge, Free Spirit, Fairy Frost and loads of other designers who adore pink as I do...the background is Moda Bella Solid - white.

These will all be pre-cut according to the instructions UNLESS I indicate otherwise - like I use the quick and dirty method of making flying geese with the Tucker Trimmer to make them perfectly...I may use Accuquilt dies for some cuts - anything to make this easier for you to complete the block - if I can.

Best of all, each block will only cost you $5...you will download the pattern on your own - but you can buy the blocks from me.

I am only creating seven sets...one for me and six more for anyone who wants to join in...
I hope to see your blocks on Moda’s IG page...#ModaStitchPink
