September Monthly Mini

September is a busy month in the boatyard. It is hard to believe that we have already begun decommissioning boats to be hauled out for the winter. There are still a few who, like me, realize that September offers some of the best cruising of the year. I just love watching boats sail in through the gut just before sunset. 

This month’s (very simple) mini, “September Sunset” reminds me of the wonderful colors on the horizon this time of year.

  1. I love mimis, and really love this one!

  2. Simple maybe, simply stunning would be my word for this little mini! That alternate stripey fabric is totally luscious, bringing back memories of the grape harvest in Oregon and driving through the small town where huge crates of ripe grapes were being delivered to the local winery in the early dawn hours. The aroma of those grapes will remain with me always. Thanks for the sweet memory your little quilt brought back this morning.

    1. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

  3. The border print in your mini is a good one. I don't remember seeing that fabric anywhere. You did a good job of picking up the colors from it in the rest of your quilt.
    Does not seem possible that fall is here and people finishing up summer activities. Summer seemed to drag but yet fly by. Hard to explain what I mean.

  4. One day I hope to see your stash in real life, Wendy. I want to observe for myself the magical place from which you pull all the incredible striped prints you put to such good use in your quilts. You have another stunner here. And you are the master of unexpected color! I would never have thought of the soft yellow, but it plays so well here. Such a delightful mini!
    This year has gone by in a blur--is summer really gone?

  5. Your mini is so nice and a great use of that gorgeous border print. Very special to be reminded of the beautiful September skies. Thanks for bringing us all together Wendy!

  6. So pretty, Wendy! Wow! You must have beautiful sunsets! Great use of fabric, and very original, as usual. Love it!

  7. Very pretty Wendy! Luscious border print!

  8. What a super fun mini quilt! I love it!

  9. Oh I am getting inspired! Can you tell me more about this monthly mini thingy? How does that work?

  10. Your mini is perfect for September. You've got the best fabrics, Wendy! I love the print you used for the strips. What a luscious color!

  11. WOW! I need to get my September mini done! LOVE yours and that border fabric is fabulous!! Thanks for the motivation!
    I'll bet boating in September is fabulous...
    I'm guessing that Gordon wouldn't have to be coaxed, either!!

  12. It's perfect! Love that sashing strip fabric!

  13. What beautiful colors to represent a September sunset. The sashing fabric really ties it all together.

  14. Lovely Quilt and I agree with you so much - September and October have beautiful late day light.
    Who doesn't love a simple four patch? Great border fabric!
    I hang my head in shame as I don't have a mini to offer for Sept. Maybe next month.

  15. What a beautiful little quilt, now, of course, I have a SQUIRREL moment... AGGGGHHHH!

  16. I enjoyed getting caught up with all of the Mini quilters this AM. They are all so creative! take care!

  17. Beautiful quilt, Wendy. That purple fabric is exquisite!
    What do you do at the boatyard? Do you own a boat and sail, yourself?

  18. I was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) when I was 46 years old 2 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help. The medical team did even less. My decline was rapid and devastating. my arms weakened first, then my hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told me about DOCTOR JAMES Herbal mix medicine and his effectiveness in treating l ALS , I contacted him. and ordered for his herbal mix medicine, i was happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed my Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, i was  able to walk and eat well, sleep well and exercise regularly., i'm  pretty active now and my attitude is extremely positive.i joyfully recommend you to DR.JAMES  because health is wealth this is a very bad experience with those living with ALS  or any other diseases like Shingle,schizophrenia,Bipolar, Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Bladder Cancer,Colorectal Cancer,Breast Cancer,Kidney Cancer,Leukemia,Lung Cancer,Skin Cancer,Uterine Cancer,Prostate Cancer,Fibromyalgia,a

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

  20. My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's diseases this neuron disease started 25 years before being revealed it was triggered the moment we started eating sugars including any and almost all carbs that break down to glycerol, and he was placed on the best  medical treatment approved by the United States, (FDA) he has been taking Cholinesterase, Meantime to treat his memory loss, confusion and the problems with his thinking and reasoning. Just to help slow the progression and manage the symptoms, as no cure exists I read through with interest. I once believed Alzheimer disease has no cure. Well it is true with English medicine, but not with herbal medicine. My Dad's experience opened my eyes to the reality of a cure through herbs. My Father was a vibrant man before his encounter with Alzheimer. He was a scientist, hence his mental capability was never in doubt. In 2013, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer. The symptoms manifested through repeating conversation and gradually forgetting things. It became progressive from finding the right words during conversation, to significant confusion and forgetting details about himself. It was not a good experience, seeing your father whose brilliance had no match, totally became a shadow of himself. His doctors said the disease has no cure, just medications for treatment which had a lot of side effects were administered to him. Early 2016, while on the internet, I bumped into a story of Alzheimer, and I read about a cure through herbs with interest. I researched more to be sure it was not a hoax.  In my quest, Doctor James herbal mix medicine was mentioned in the testimony. I contacted the Great Healer  on his email that was provided  (GREATCUREMAN'@MAIL.COM)   and I got his herbal mix medicine for my father. He told me that his herbal mix medicine will help my Dad to reduce the abnormal protein fold inside his neurons, and regulate the nutrients and molecules in his body system, and as well stop the progressive disorder that build up in damaging his brain cells, and help his weak cells  that causes  brain shrinking to function well, it's a good herbal drinks for cell repairing. This doctor James is a super great man and his herbal mix medicine is wonderful and works effectively as he said, with no side effects. It's been 4 years and my Dad is perfectly okay and back to his laboratory work even at old age. For your loved ones with Alzheimer or Dementia, take them off English medicine and use Dr. James herbal mix medicine for treatment. If you are suffering from Dementia, Alzheimer's disease or facing different kinds of health challenges  do not hestitate to contact the great healer on his Email at.(GREATCUREMAN@GMAIL.COM].   and get your permanent cure. He's a good man, and he will help you.

  22. I was in severe ribs and stomach pain at about this time last year. And I went to the hospital for treatment and was diagnosed for CHRONIC HEPATITIS B I was told it has no cure and i was so devastated because all hope seems to be lost, some drugs was given me to slowdown the viral load, and it got worse after sometime. I came across Dr. Iyabiye’s recommendation online while studying about the disease, and then I reach out to him just to try but I was taken by surprise. I got completely cured, all the pains were gone and I went back to the hospital for another test and I was tested negative to the disease. Here is the doctor’s contact if interested: (+234-815-857-7300)
