Virtual Trunk Show #10: Spring 2013

Hello Friends, I was so happy about getting some warm weather a couple of weeks ago.   But apparently, the cold weather isn’t quite ready to leave us for the year…. and so, we are back to the colder temperatures again!  I heard on the news some of you might even get some snow today… yikes!



Nonetheless, mentally I am forcing myself to think that we are in spring through some of my springy quilts.  I hope you will enjoy the “virtual Spring” I am sharing with you today. Feel free to click on the quilt names to view detailed pictures of the quilts.

  1. Wendy, thank you for sharing some virtual spring . The baking summer have already started in my part of the world . Your spring quilts are gorgeous.

  2. “Out of the Nest” and “Watercolor Sketches” are the first two that jump out at me, then “Not Too Square” and “Stained Glass” (other than those gorgeous photos of the cherry blossoms!). The forecast snow didn’t materialize for us but the Twin Cities/St. P. & Mpls have been getting more than their share and, unfortunately, we will be the recipient of the melting that is certain to follow! Awesome, inspiring post! You rock, Girl!!! Shivery hugs….SSAB

  3. I think Garden Maze is the most appealing. It’s unusual and not “cutesy” like some of the others. I’m just not into “cute”, but I do like “intriguing”.

  4. Out of the Nest has been a favorite of mine since I first saw it for many reasons, theme, fabric choices and fabulous quilting. I even got a bunch of Kanashi? flower makes because of it although haven’t tried them. However, the picture of the cherry blossoms takes my breathe away. I live so close, but can’t deal with the crowds!. Perhaps next year at sunrise….

    • All the quilts are wonderful, but ” out of the nest” and ” stained glass” are my two favorites. “Simple Quilts and Sewing” seems to have eluded me in my trips to the store to purchase it.

  5. You already know that I am fan of everything that you do. It doesn’t matter what it is, I love it. I think out of these, I would choose “Out of the Nest” – the applique, the 3D flowers, and of course your quilting! It is just so, so adorable!

  6. Watercolor Sketches just screams spring to me. Its so light and airy. Looks like it belongs draped over a white wicker chair that sits on a white picket porch….going to my happy place with your quilt…..

  7. Although I love ALL of your quilts I think I am partial to the Stained Glass one. I think it is because of it being photographed where the weather is warm. Your “virtual” quilt show is amazing!!

  8. I love them ALL but Stained Glass, Not Too Square, Flower Duet and In the Meadow cry out my name. The one with the little birds is so charming. Gosh, I’d be at a loss to pick a favorite.

  9. OUT OF THE NEST is still my favorite–I just love that quilt. Been gone for a while but back home and ready to keep up with what all you are blogging.

  10. OUT OF THE NEST is still my favorite. Been gone from home for a while but back and ready to keep up with your blogging.

  11. I like them all but if I was FORCED to pick a favorite, I’d say Out of the Nest followed by Stained glass and then Watercolor sketches. I really love all of them but these three are such a breath of fresh air. I am amazed at how prolific you are. How can you accomplish so much? I wish I could do half of what you do. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  12. Of course I love the Out of the Nest one, but I am also crazy about the Garden Maze quilt. I don’t recall seeing that one before. The fabrics in the Stained Glass still capture my heart as do the Watercolor Sketches.

  13. Made the Plain and Fancy quilt and need the fabric to make it again. This quilt was stolen from me. Never used it. It was new. Just need the fabric to remake it. If anyone has this fabric please email @ or put it on my facebook. it’s the same. Need to remake it. Much appreciated. I have the pattern instructions.
