July mini


A simple finish for this hot and busy month, “Summer Nines”. I started this in a workshop with Leslie Muir Volpe back in early March. It was the last public function I attended before the Covid 19 restrictions.

Leslie is a spectacular quilter, known for her delightful small quilts. I can’t find a website for her, but if you Google her name you will see lots of wonderful mini quilts. 

Take a gander at what my fellow mini makers have come up with in this busy summer month. 

I added my friend Cyndi (Busy Thimble) even though hers will eventually be large it is at present a mini and it is sensational. You will want to pay her a visit. And do check back in case we find a few stragglers as I will update as they come in. I know some of you have had trouble with the new Blogger so if you haven't posted this month, I simply linked in the June mini and we can update it later.

I hope you are all staying safe and cool in these hot and crazy times!

What a sweet nine patch. This is the kind of little quilt that looks perfect on a dolly bed as it mirrors a large quilt so well.
thanks for the links!

You can't beat the simplicity yet the complexity of a nine patch. Love the colors and the summery border.

Cathy said...

Wendy, I LOVE your little mini. Those 9-patches are so sweet; and the border fabric is fabulous.

Such a bright pretty floral for the border, it really sets the blocks up. Just what we need for the middle of the summer.

I echo the other comments - great little nine patches perfectly set off by the floral border! Thanks for the linkup Wendy!

Sandy said...

Darling little quilt, Wendy! Lovely fabrics, and so crisp and perfect. I've posted my July mini, and the link to you. Great mini's this month!

Such a classic little replica of a bed quilt. I see many of the Floral Gatherings line in your 9-patches. I like the neutral setting square fabric you chose, but that border fabric steals the show. Just lovely, Wendy!

That's a sweet little mini and the border fabric is wonderful!

Sometimes people refer to times in history as "pre-something or another". Like "pre-Columbian" to place an artifact in a time frame. Do you think down the road, our quilts will be referred to as "pre-Covid"?

Its a lovely mini......

Perfect mini, and the border fabric is lovely (wondering if I don't have some of that in my stash - maybe in a different colorway? I'll have to check)!
I thought and thought about mini inspiration this month, but came up blank. Your idea is perfection - there's nothing better than nine patches and some colorful borders and binding. Maybe that will be my August inspiration!

Barbara said...

What a sweet July mini, Wendy! Your 9-patch blocks and fabulous border are the perfect combination!

I love your mini. I really love that border fabric! I have a morsel of that that I've been saving! Thanks for hosting the monthly minis, I always enjoy scateing around seeing what everyone is up-to!

Lori said...

Your mini this month is darling! Love the fabric for the border!!

Thanks for the add, Wendy! Summer Nines is a cute mini - there's just something about nine patch blocks. They are so simple, but play well with so many quilt designs.
