August Monthly Mini

 My plasma infusion sessions (4 hours a day for 4 straight days) started the Monday after our state show. It worked well enough for me to muster enough energy to put this little guy together. I just took what I made in Barb's (Fun with Barb) class and made a few lollipop flowers and voila! I was going to call it “Pineapples in the Sky”, but then thought of a much better name: “Vedder Home and Garden”! 

I used this fun toile with grapes and wine bottles and quilted in diagonal organic lines in honor of Barb!

Thanks Barb, for such fun classes! I highly recommend her classes. She is a fantastic teacher! 

Once again, I have set this to automatically post on August 31. Screen time bothers my eyes right now, so I apologize in advance for not commenting again this month. I will have a lot of catching up to do after surgery!! Thanks for hanging in there.

 Let’s see what summer has brought to our fellow minimakers.

  1. Some things are more important that commenting on our quilts, Wendy! Please just focus on getting better.

  2. I love it, Wendy! And that window is fabulous. What a sweet tribute to Barb.
    I'm so sorry about your health problems and all the side-effects. I hope you have some times--hours, days?--when you don't feel awful.

  3. Such a sweet little mini! All the details just make it even better.:) Take care of yourself!!

  4. Love your mini Wendy! Sending prayers and best wishes for better days ahead.

  5. please know you are on my prayer list every single day....

  6. Your mini quilt is very cute and I think it's great that Barb was able to come back and spend some good times with you. No need to reply to the comment, the best thing is to rest and get healthy again. Good luck to you. Huge hugs !!

  7. Your mini workshop quilt is just darling! I love the name, ha ha ha - Good One! Thanks for taking my classes in Maine.

  8. First, the important thing is to take care of you and get back to feeling good. Secondly, despite having health side effects, your imagination and creativity have not be compromised. Your interpretation of Barb's classes is fabulous.

  9. This is an adorable creation! And the name cracked me up--though your first choice wasn't a bad idea either.
    I know your surgery is this month. Hoping and praying it all goes well and you can begin the road to recovery very soon!

  10. That is so cute! Not to mention the clever name …
    I know you will get better soon Wendy, after all you have all us quilters pulling for you!

  11. Goodluck with your surgery and churn by treatment..... Love the mini

  12. its another lovely mini........take care

  13. I just love your "Vedder Home and Garden" mini! I see you also took Barb's pineapple class. Would love to take that one some day. Please take care of yourself. My husband used to get monthly infusions so I know what that entails. Thinking of you!

  14. Wishing you all the best for your surgery and quickly be on the road to recovery and creating great quilts!
