Popsicle Mini

Happy Monday!

It's all about my Popsicle Mini today!

This one was so fun to make.

I hope to keep my momentum going with it and get it quilted soon.

 It would be so fun to have it out for summer!

 I used a new table runner pattern called Mini Popsicles by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree and Co.

These Popsicles were calling out, "Make me into a mini quilt!" So I did a little math and I made a few changes and I came up with this!

Joanna will be releasing a pattern for a big version of Popsicles very soon and I just might have to make one of those too.

I've seen a sneak peek and its adorable!

The background fabrics here are various low volume pieces that I've been collecting recently.

I especially love the orange bird fabric, although I usually don't like birds on fabric.

I don't know why.  It's just not my thing.

The fabrics for the Popsicles are mostly Noteworthy by Sweetwater

There's also some Nine Dots by Carrie Nelson and a few Sunkissed scraps, also by Sweetwater,  leftover from my Endless Summer quilt.

Last summer, I bought a Popsicle mold set and made lots Popsicles for the boys to eat after summer cross country runs.

The Popsicles made from from leftover smoothie were delicious, so when there was any left in the Vitamix, I pulled out the Popsicle molds and filled a few up.

I'm planning on making our first batch of the summer today.

 This one has got to be one of my favorite summer quilts, but I'll bet you already figured that out!

It doesn't get much more fun than making a simple Popsicle quilt at the beginning of summer.

I'm going to get out those Popsicle molds and make some smoothie right now.

See you later!

I love your mini wish I had thought of it although I love my table runner too!

I love your version, especially how your Popsicles "pop" on the background.

That is just fabulous. I hope you get it finished quickly so you can enjoy it up this summer.

This sure screams summer :)! I think I need one - and keep it out even in the winter months - just to remember summer will come again :)! Beautiful!
