FO: Popsicle Trivet

The great thing about moms is is they understand how busy you are. They really don't want you to buy them expensive things. A handmade gift is enough to make them smile (although, most crafters feel the same way about that!). We celebrated my mom's birthday last week, and I managed to finish one gift on time. The second gift is waiting patiently to be completed. Maybe this weekend?

When I first purchased Ayumi's popsicle pattern over on Superbuzzy, I immediately knew I had to make a watermelon popsicle for my mom. Which I did. Since she and her husband just built a house together, I thought it would make a fun gift for the kitchen.

I added some borders of Summersville, a red(-ish) solid and a Riley Blake Domestic Diva print. To bind, I used an older Timeless Treasures print. The batting is Insul-brite.

I guess it's sort of silly to have a trivet (hot) with a popsicle (cold) on it? Ah, but it's cute and fun. She loved it. Win, win, win.

  2. Aren't moms great? I told my mom last weekend that her b'day present would be late (I'm making her a lap quilt) because of all the work I've been doing on the house and she said she would feel guilty if I took the time to make her a present, with everything else I had to do! I couldn't make her feel guilty, now, could I?!?!
