Checking in & Giveaway Winner & MORE No Scraps Left Behind Giveaways & FREE PATTERN DOWNLOAD!


Hello Friends!  I hope you have been well.  I just came through a sewing marathon where I have had to work through weekends the last few weeks.  The last I counted, I think I have at least 10 quilts already in queue for editorial features from this year’s sewing.  Yikes!  And this past weekend, I covered more than 100 miles just driving my precious cargo (aka Miss Baby) for her activities!  Nonetheless, I hope you had a fun National Quilting Day weekend, as well as St. Patrick’s Day!  Have you seen my Irish Reel Dance quilt, featured in Quiltmaker’s March/April 2018 issue?

I found this fascinating article about St. Patrick that I would share.  Click HERE to read.

I made Colcannon for our St. Patrick’s Day dinner.  So, what is your go to dishes for St. Patrick’s Day?

And in the midst of all the craziness, I have THIS going on for me.  You can imagine the rest.. ha!  This is going to be another ongoing process.


Before I go any further — I am happy to announce Kathy to be the winner of my Patriotic fabrics giveaway!!  Congratulations, Kathy!  An email is sent to you – please respond with your mailing address, and I will get the fabrics sent out to you!


This picture was taken last fall of my quilts from my sewing room sans about 25 quilts that were not returned to me, and another 30 or so bed quilts stored in my linen closet upstairs.  SO, you think we might have a clue for my “seemingly never ending” stash?!  I am offering 4 more fabric boxes (size of USPS Priority Flat Rate Medium Boxes) to give away.

Offer open to US mailing addresses only, and you will have to be willing to pay $17 shipping cost for me to get the fabric boxes to you!  If you have received boxes from me before, you know I am a generous sharer!!  Leave a comment in this post, and tell me which box you would like!

Box #1:  Useable scrap pieces — these are scrap pieces from my recently pieced quilts.  They don’t come in yardages, but some are large pieces that will be perfect if you are a scrappy quilter.

Box #2:  Mostly green, red and cream yardage pieces – large and small.

Box #3:  Mystery miscellaneous yardage pieces – large and small.

Box #4:  Mainly solid yardage pieces.



To celebrate the first week of Spring — here is a free pattern for you to download here!  Enjoy!!

Meanwhile, you can find patterns and exclusive quilt kits I have designed HERE and HERE.  If you see a quilt kit you like, do purchase it while you can because the kits aren’t stocked indefinitely, and more often than not, they won’t be available after the fabrics are out of circulation.

HAPPY MONDAY, HAPPY WEEK, AND HAPPY SPRING – Friends!!  Take care till we chat again!

  1. Wendy, I don’t know how you do it!!! You are so prolific in your quilt making and pattern development. Your Irish Reel Dance is cute as can be! Various shades of green are becoming my new favorite go-to colors. I will gladly help you with your destashing. Box number 3 would be my choice, I love a mystery 😂 😂 Take care, hope your life slows down a bit this week for you!!

  2. A woman after my own heart. I love to share extra fabric with other quilty friends and it is always so much fun to see fabrics that I can’t get locally – I would wish to win Box #2 as first choice and Box #3 as a second choice. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. Would love to see all of your collection of quilts. Amazing!

  4. What a beautiful Irish Reel Dance Quilt. The Shamrocks are very realistic. I used to have a shamrock plant from Ireland that my dad brought to my grandmother from Ireland after World
    War II.

  26. Pretty quilt. We were at a conference over the weekend. The vendors had lots of green and candy – it was like Trick or Treat collecting candy and gizmos…! Any box would be fun – I like solids it seems, but can always fit in other fabrics in paper piecing and charity quilts! Thanks for the chance.

  27. I’d LOVE 3 OR 4. If I win, I’ll gladly share with my quilty friends, and any leftovers can go on my guilds Freebie Table! Thanks for your generosity!

  28. Hello Wendy; Oh my what a fantastic collection of quilts that you have made! Do each of them have a time and place when they come out and decorate your home? For some reason, hubby and I did not fix anything special for Saint Patty’s Day, not even cornbread. These patterns you share with us are always so magnificent and very much appreciated. I will choose Box # 4. Yet, I would be just as thrilled to win any one of the boxes as so many other quilters have commented. Thank You for sharing your talents and your fabrics with us once again! Everything you do is so appreciated! Have a fabulous time running those 100 mile marathons with Miss Baby every weekend, before long (it goes by so quickly it seems) it will be over! Have a great day!

  29. Hi Wendy, Well you sure have a lot to divest! I would love box #2 if I was lucky enough to win, but would be happy with any of them as I am a scrap quilter! Thanks for so generously sharing your stash!!

  30. You are so generous Wendy. I think of you often and I know you are having a lot of fun.
    Painting is okay, I like neutral colors too because you can enjoy your things so much more.

  31. Thank you Wendy. . . How fun it is just to think about a chance of winning a box of fabric from you. . . .I love scrappy quilts and would be thrilled with any box.

  32. How do you ever keep track of your quilts coming and going? Your energy and accomplishments never cease to amaze me. I can’t ever see you wasting one moment. I love your Reel quilt.

    Paint chips….hmmm…sounds interesting. You can’t go wrong with those colors. They will go well with that pile of quilts!

    You are always so generous with your destashing boxes. They are well worth the shipping costs. Since I am just getting into solids, I would choose those.

  33. Thank you, Wendy, for drawing my name and making me a winner. I have sent you my address and can’t wait to get the box. When I get a quilt made I will send you the picture.

    I would love to have a peek at your sewing room!!


  34. I love them all, but I would pick # 1
    But any of them would be appreciated and used! Thank you for sharing
    I’m happy to cover shipping!

  35. Wendy, I am reading. your post while holding my sleeping first grandchild, who is six weeks old today. I would love to recieve box #1 – scrappy. I see doll blankets and doll clothes in my future.

  36. Box # 3 sounds like a winner to me. Thank you Wendy for a chance to win any of your scraps! Love your creativity and thank you for sharing the free pattern for a Spring time tulip quilt.

  37. Hello once more,

    I’d love to be in the running for boxes 1 and 2. Or 3 or 4 if those go quickly. Not very fussy – anything you’ve used is okay by me!

  39. Everything you do is so beautiful and well made. Any of those scrap boxes would make lovely “Comfort” quilts for our guild members who are going through a rough time or the ones we make for the elderly.
