Quilt Showcase 2014

April 6, 2011
.... if this is your first attempt at appliqué I’m looking forward to seeing your appliqué quilts in shows in a few years time....
Little did I realise when the above comment was left on my Yahoo photo album that I would be writing this post.  
"A few years time" - that's a long way down the track and a lot of learning, maybe one or two more applique quilts into the future. 
The power of encouragement is AWESOME! 
Without it I would not have finished the quilt and without it I would not have entered it into a quilt show.
But here it is ...

  1. Well done Wendy. Wowwwwww what a beauty, I knew I would see your quilts hang one day you fabric and colour blending is stunning. I'm thrilled to see others love it as much as I do. It Was special nice that Esther saw it too. Enjoy every bit of the glamor it is receiving you deserve it. Cheers Glenda

  2. Congratulations, Wendy! It was great to see you and your quilt at the show.

  3. Oh my, if I'm half as good as you in a few years, I will be happy.....beautiful work and well deserved, but then you do come from the best city in the world, just like me!

  4. Fantastic! It's so fun to see those finished quilts after having seen some of us working on this one together.

  5. Congratulations! I knew you'd win something on your first try of entering! :D I'm so glad that you did put submit some of your quilts into the show.

    I'm so sad that I'm not going to be able to get a photo of you and your quilt at the show!

  6. Oh Wendy BRAVO and congratulations on your well deserved ribbon. Your quilt is awesome. Hugs Bunny

  7. Your quilt is gorgeous! I've just joined Esther's group. Everything about your quilt is inspiring. Thank you!
