June minis better late than never!

I can’t believe how June flew by! I pieced this little top at our retreat using some of my favorite Dutch fabrics. 

We've all been busy this summer and I have no single excuse for being so late in posting. I apologize to Janet, Kyle and Barbara for taking so long to post their June minis.

Janet's (Rogue Quilter) little gem has a distinct patriotic flavor. Love it! I love how Barbara (Quilts, Gravestones, and Elusive Ancestors)  incorporated selvedges in her June mini. Kyle (Timeless Reflections) used some very sweet vintage flower garden blocks to create her mini. Adorable!

I neglected to post a photo of this little gem that Christina (Tina) made for me. She often comes up with little surprises!
A while ago, she had asked "the sistahs" for our favorite colors. When we arrived at retreat, she gave each of us one of these special hand embroidered pieces in our selected colors. A few of us had experienced some tough times in the past weeks so the saying was particularly appropriate!

We spent 10 fabulous days in this magical place where my husband's grandfather was born. It was hard to say goodbye to our son and his family and it has difficult getting back to reality! 


  1. Ooh, those fabrics in the mini are fantastic! Love it! The hand embroidered piece is so charming and fun. You obviously have a good friend there.:) And good for you getting to spend precious time with family!

  2. oooh I love your Dutch Mini, the fabrics are so beautiful especially the one in the center with the apple green or is it yellow? Anyways, it's beautiful. Glad to see you're having a wonderful summer.

  3. Great mini with all those yummy fabrics! Enjoy your summer - it's flying by!

  4. What a fabulous way to use your Dutch fabrics. We're not really on any time schedule. No worries. Glad you had a great visit

  5. Your mini quilt is fabulous Wendy ! I love a lot Dutch fabrics !

  6. Your Dutch mini is charming! Love those fabrics! So glad you got to spend some time with your family. Such a cute embroidered paintbrush from your "sistah." And thank you for the June mini link :)

  7. Quilt friends are the best! Seems the gifts always arrive at the right time.

  8. Love your latest mini... does that mean I didn't make mine in June? EGAD... I'm going to get right on that!!
    So glad you had fun at the retreat... the BEST times

  9. The large flower print in the center of your mini looks very interesting. I am assuming it is a Dutch print.

  10. What beautiful fabrics you used in your little quilt. I especially like the larger center square. How sweet of your friend to make the embroidered pieces for all of you. It is hard to say goodbye to the little grands, isn't it?

  11. love that picture of you with baby!
    that is such a great say and cute embroidery. I must remember that.
    wonderful mini Wendy
