Popsicle preview



I've been putting my Popsicles together and the other day I decided it was time that I took a picture and gave you a preview, since the Minis and More Parade is just around the corner.

Popsicles is the new pattern by Joanna Figueroa that Sherri and I are featuring for Minis and More this month.

Joanna's pattern is for a table runner, but I decided to go rogue and make mine into a mini quilt!

You know I'm all about minis!







The fabrics are sherbet colors, mostly from Sweetwater's Noteworthy line, with some Sunkissed and some Nine Dots mixed in too.

The borders go on next, then I'll have a finished quilt top to show in the 
Parade!


While I was outside with my helpers taking some quilt pictures, I took some of my hydrangea too.

The blooms look so big and nice I wanted to show you.

I've had this plant for a few years and each year I love it even more than the last! 







Time to get the chipotle burgers and potato salad ready for our cookout tonight.

We have a birthday to celebrate and we are also remembering the fallen on Memorial Day.

Oh my goodness, those popsicles are just so cute!

And your hydraengas...so lovely...my favorite flower, but of course it's too hot here to grow them!

Those popsicles are adorable! And I'm so jealous of your hydrangea... the deer ate all the buds off of mine... I'm hoping it might come back as it is the Endless Summer variety... those blue blooms are so pretty!

Your popsicles are perfect! I thought I play by the rules this time and made the tablerunner;-) Just uploaded a picture on instagram.
Love your flowers! My pareant got a hydraengas as wedding gift 37 years ago and it still blooms every year in the garden ... a sweet thing isn't it?

Love all the photos and the quilt! One thing I did last year was to put real copper pennies in the soil around my Hydrangea. I have the most beautiful dark purple blooms this year. It could be the amount of rain we have had, but I have read about how they like acidic soil. Older pennies have copper, newer ones do not! Your bush is a beauty too.

Your Hydrangea is beautiful! I have these plants as well and they have beautiful green leaves. They were blooming when we purchased 5 years ago and have never bloomed since. They are in full sun part of the day and shade the rest of the day. Are you doing anything special with yours. Your popsicles are cute also!

I love hydrangeas too. My mother's are beautiful every year. I planted 3 in my garden and so far they done well enough ... just not as beautiful as yours and hers!

Your Popsicle Mini is adorable! Perfect for summer!
