Quilting Marathon: Part 1

Many of you have known that I have been on a quilting marathon as of late.  I am happy to share with you that the first phase of this crazy marathon is over.  I so appreciate your encouraging comments and emails – believe it or not, they keep me company as I work late into the night meeting various quilt deadlines!  So, I want to thank you for being my late night buddies!

Over the last four weeks, I have turned in…

1.  Spring Clusters Banner for American Patchwork & Quilting (Spring 2011)

2.  An embellished baby circus quilt for Quilting Treasures

3.  Dancing Daffodils for Quilter’s World‘s Special Interest Issue (2011)

4.  Duckie Crossing for The Quilter (March 2011)

5.  Autumn Panel as a special project

6.  Tea with me Table Topper for RJR Fabrics‘ Quilt Market Booth (Houston 2010)

7.  Reach for the Stars Growth Chart for RJR Fabrics’ Quilt Market Booth (Houston 2010)

8.  Spring Song for Benartex‘s Quilt Market Booth (Houston, 2010)

Curious mind wants to know if you have a favorite…

I just started the second phase of the marathon, and am almost finished with the first quilt in this series.  I will have more pictures for you later!  Meanwhile, I hope you are enjoying the autumn/spring season wherever you are.  Come back tomorrow – I finally have a Ladybug Quilt-Along Post for you on the ladies! Some of you have heard from me, but some of you still haven’t — I am working on that!

  1. The first one is in my favourite colours, but I like the last one best ….. the design doesn’t look like any other design out there has just been made up in a different colour or size.

  2. While it is very difficult to pick a favorite since they are all beautiful, I like the lat one, Spring Song, best. I love the fabrics and the quilting on it is amazing!! Congrats on getting all those done! Good luck with round 2!

  3. Dear Curious Mind:
    My favorite is “Spring Clusters Banner” until I saw baby circus quilt. Then I saw “Dancing Daffodils” and my heart was dancing joyfully. But then you sneaked in “Duckie Crossing” with the lavender in it and that was it. Following that was “Autumn Panel” and I thought I could make that a special project too! And along comes “Tea with me” and “Reach for the Stars Growth Chart” and “Spring Song” and now I’m all flustered– oh dear, I love ’em all!
    Now I’ve got the curious mind: what’s in Marathon 2?

  4. Hi Wendy, it’s very hard to pick just one. They are all beautiful! If I had to choose just one, it would have to be Spring Song. The quilting is exceptional! Honourable mention would be Tea with me, it’s so sweet.

  5. Honestly Wendy – I dont know how you keep up – its amazing. ALL the quilts are beauriful and as always your quilting is exceptional. I just wish I lived closer and could come amd view these wonderful quilts in real time. I hope you do get SOME sleep. Baby must also be exceptional!

  6. as usual, i just cannot pick one!! the first one is a new favorite and the last one is one you posted about before and love it–your quilting as always is just phenomenol! i think i’m going to have to try at least one more of your quilt patterns

  7. I don’t know how you do it!!! But, you sure do make beautiful quilts and they should be shown as much as possible. Now, if you could only send some of that energy here to me , that would be awesome!!!!! lol

  8. Good grief, Wendy — you must be exhausted!! They’re all gorgeous so picking a favourite is VERY tough! If I absolutely had to choose I think it would be a tie between Tea with Me and Reach for the Stars.

  9. I can’t believe you made all those in four weeks. I want to know how many elves live in your studio. *G* I love them all dearly but Spring Song has to be my favorite!

  10. All I can say is WOW! That’s a lot of lovely work done.

    I like the Dancing Daffodils, the Autumn Panel (a special project? Will that be in a magazine?) and Spring Song is just too beautiful. I also liked the embellishments on the Baby Circus quilt — it’s not one that I’d make but I love how the ideas could be applied to other projects.

    It is always fun to see what you are previewing!

  11. First of all, it’s REALLY hard to choose (you know I love all your stuff o:) ). But if I’m pressed, I’d have to pick two – Spring Clusters and Spring Song (my favorite season is Fall, really! LOL). I really like the tea cups too (oh never mind, I guess I just can’t pick!).

    I can’t wait to see photos of the entire quilts!

  12. Not fair, asking us to pick our favorite. It’s like “saying “which flower in my garden do you like best? Well I love the roses, but again I love the peonies, well yes but Ialso love the poppies…then again…”.
    Too hard to choose, but if you twist my arn I’d say Dancing Daffodils , But then again I love Spring Song as well. and..
    Can’t choose.
