This month's mini started with three orphan 16-patch blocks . . .
. . . and then I added three more.
This little quilt with its large paisley border was my inspiration. It's from Merikay Waldvogel's book, Childhood Treasures.
I had just enough of this paisley for the backing and it was interesting to see how the pattern lined up when I sewed the two strips together.
Wendy usually posts her mini on the last day of the month so be sure to visit :) But another reason to visit is the awesome Covid Community Supper quilt that she assembled from blocks that were contributed by quilters near and far. And the back is just as pretty as the front :)
This little guy was playing hide and seek when I stopped by my brother's cabin.
An impressive display of Queen Anne's Lace on the main road.
And nearby was this Creeping Bellflower--another invasive.
Reflections of the sunset on the river always catch my eye.
Have a great week!
