June Monthly Mini

This month’s mini is thanks to Pam Buda (Homespun Quilts). I used her easy to follow pattern called “Garden Basket”. 

 I started this in May so I wanted the “garden squares” to have some Spring colors. I used Pam’s delicious browns (each triangle is a different fabric) for the basket and her lovely soft pinks as a background.

You can find the pattern and her fabulous fabrics on her website (here).

I'm calling this one "Chin Up"! As much as I loathe talking about medical issues (especially mine!), I feel I must tell all of you why I have not been present in blogland for a while. I have been diagnosed with myasthenia gravis. Basically, it is a chronic condition that affects how the nerves tell your muscles what to do. Needless to say, it has been a challenge to keep up with daily duties and thus my blog reading and commenting have suffered. I have great hopes that my upcoming surgery will bring me back to my crazy self by the end of the summer.

 It progressed quite quickly and when I realized I would not be able to quilt for quite a while (I can hear your gasps and I truly appreciate your kind thoughts!), I made 3 monthly minis. They are all on automatic posts at the end of each month so you won’t have to miss seeing all the delightful minimaker’s creations.

 Don’t worry about me, I am like a boomerang that always comes back! I know I will be in the pink (and yellow and cheddar and madder and …) again soon.

 A special thank you to all you crazy mini quilters! If you are new and want to jump in, please e-mail me and I will make every effort to get you up on the list.
