Popsicles on Parade and a winner too!

It's June!  What a happy month!

We're deep into high school exams right now during the last week of school and we're all looking forward to a fun, relaxing summer!

I can't think of a better way to begin this summer than with some cool treats to celebrate.

How about a Popsicle Parade?

For the Minis and More pattern this month Sherri from A Quilting Life and I chose the new Mini Popsicle pattern by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree and Co.

It's a pattern for a table runner, but I've seen it turned into some other fun projects too!

Take a look at Mindy's projects this month!
She made two!
The first is this adorable table runner, quite possibly the cutest red, white, and blue table runner I've ever seen!  

This cute little mini also belongs to Mindy.
I love the summery colors she used and also that beautiful yellow border she added.  Really creative Mindy!

The next Popsicle mini quilt is mine. 
I liked these Popsicles so much that I just had to make a few more and they turned into a mini quilt!
I offset the rows a bit so the Popsicles would look like they were scattered around and I added a little extra spacing between some of the Popsicles too.
I can't wait to get this one quilted and in use as a cheerful summer decoration!  

You can find the rest of the Popsicle Parade on Sherri's blog A Quilting Life.

I know there are some amazing versions of Mini Popsicles over there!

And on to our prize winner!

After our last Parade, Sherri and I chose a Minis and More prize winner and it was Hildy!

Hildy's prize package was mailed to her in Germany.

More prizes are to follow for our next Minis and More winner.

You're entered once in the drawing for each time you enter a project in a Parade, and a winner will be chosen each quarter.

The next Parade will be the first of July, so Sherri's Star Bright Mini seemed like a great selection for our next pattern!  

You can find the pattern here in Sherri's etsy shop.

I don't know about you, but I plan to make mine in red, white and blue.

This would look amazing in any color scheme.

Sherri's is made with her Bright Sun fabric line.

You could even get ahead for Christmas and make it in holiday colors.

 The sky is the limit!

In fact, Sherri also has a full size version of Star Bright listed in her shop if you're motivated to make a large quilt this time. 

Just email Sherri or I a picture of your quilt to be included in next month's Parade before July 1st.

See you at the Parade!

Love the minis Mindy made and yours is great, too! Sherri's patterns are always a treat to work with and this mini somehow slipped my mind. I think I'll make mine in Halloween colors or perhaps in white and blue or white and red ... mmh, let's see what I'll make in the end. BTW your package didn't arrive yet I'll let you know as soon as it does. Thanks for hosting this parade!

All the quilts are great. I love to see what everyone does with the same pattern. I already have the Stars Bright Mini pattern. Can't wait to get started, maybe patriotic or even Christmas stars.
