About

Welcome to Ivory Spring! Let us journey together, extolling beautiful heirlooms. We shall admire everything from quilting and tablescapes to smocking and needlework. Our thoughts and musing shall encompass china and recipes as well as books and faith. Won’t you join me as we enjoy some of the finer things in life?

As we appreciate these beautiful treasures, I will offer related ideas and suggestions from my own experience. And you may also find my freebies and tutorials to be beneficial. And, of course, you will be able to learn from my mistakes!

Hopefully, you will be inspired by my own work and journey, just as I have been encouraged by your gracious comments.

Please feel free to drop me a line to let me know you’ve been here. I make a point to always respond to comments, either by visiting your blog or replying via email.

Lastly, if you’re intrigued to know more about me, you may find it interesting to learn that I grew up in Southeast Asia and have degrees in Chemical Engineering!

  5. Hi,
    This is my first time writing on a blog. My sister in law was just diagnosed with breast cancer. She has asked me to do a piece of needlework for her using the 23rd Psalm. The piece featured on your opening page is exactly what I’m looking for. Do you sell the chart or could you tell me where to purchase it.
    Thank you so much,
    Pam

  6. I love your blog and I hope you don’t mind if I link to yours from mine. What beautiful quilts, and congratulations on having them recognized through publications. I look forward to enjoying your pictures and musings often now that I’ve found you!

  8. Hello. I am a fairly new quilter (2009). I live in Missouri now, but am contemplating a move to Arkansas in the Hot Springs area. Where are you located? I am seeking out places for classes. I have much to learn. Your quilts are so beautiful.

    Please sign me up for future emails.

    Thank you.

  9. Wendy..yes I have visited the CWB site..everyday..and read and look at everybody’s beautiful blocks. Can’t get enough of that site!!!! I’m thinking of joining when I start the blocks. I will be slow and am apprehensive about joining but if you will I will!!!!:) ha ha. I will admit I don’t know how to post pictures but hope one of my kids can help me get started with that. I’m in Idaho where are you?
    I love your blog

  10. Just found you! How delightful to know that what YOU do is what I want to do better!

    I MQ on a Janome MC 6500 – a regular machine, no Stitch Reg. and am fairly pleased with what I do, but want to see what others (like you) can do on your DSM.

    Helen Bailey, a MQ from England, also on a DSM sent me!

    I’ll be back!

  11. Hi Wendy. I love the quilt and want to run and check my stash of polka dot, don’t think I have enough. I have spent my day over here reading all your blogs, tuts, etc. and have enjoyed myself so much. Thanks for being available to us and drop into my blog if you are so inclined. I added two of your linky buttons to get folks attention to come over here and “sit a spell”. Just know my blog is a work in progress and when you are 61 like me, well needless to say I don’t get in too many rushes anymore.

    Ciao

  12. Hi Wendy,

    I’ve been thinking about you lately and thought I’d check out your blog to see how you are doing…WOW! I’m so impressed…your work is just AMAZING!

  13. Thanks Wendy for sharing your time and talents with us quilters. You make lovely quilts with great quilting. Between you and Diane Gaudynski, I am getting very inspired to expand my domestic machine quilting skills. I know there is more “life” out there past stipple quilting.
    Hope someone sent you a good recipe for meatloaf.
    Have a good weekend!

  16. I am so delighted to have found your blog. I am a new quilter and I have found lots of help for piecing, but it’s been hard to find much about free motion quilting. Your tips and techniques are exactly what I have been searching for. I’m going to be trying out the swirls next chance I get. Thank you so much.

  17. Hi Wendy, Just saw your farm crossing quilt in the Dec./Jan. 2014 Quilter magazine, Could you let me know where I can get that fabric.
    thanks

  20. Hello Wendy: I am currently working on starry dance. Did you make any revisions to that pattern? I am having a difficult time with the small flying geese.

  21. Hi Wendy,

    Your work is so lovely; you’ve truly been blessed with a gift for quilting. I’ve been getting your blog updates for a little while now, and I feel the need to say this: it seems like you are so very busy with your work. I hope you’re able to spend enough time with your daughter. The time goes so quickly, and she will only be little once.

    God bless you from a mom whose kids are grown.
