Meet & Greet


I’ve been invited to join the 2018 Online Quilters Meet & Greet hosted by Benita Skinner's Creative SpaceThis post is to tell people a little about myself. My name is Wendy, I live in Maine and I work in the marine industry. I have a wonderful, loving family who understands and accepts (and often benefits from) my passion for quilting.

I am a very traditional quilter, but I love seeing all types of quilting and textile art. I prefer hand work to machine and quilt almost every day. My favorite technique of late is the historic "potholder" method, whereby each block is individually quilted and bound and then stitched together to form the quilt. I like to inspire others to give it a try.

Although I have been quilting for over 50 years, I am fairly new to blogging. I lurked around the internet for years reading other people’s blogs until finally (in 2014) my friend Cyndi (BusyThimble) convinced me to give it a try.

Quilting is a major part of my life. Sharing bits and pieces of my quilting journey with others helps to keep me moving forward. I truly enjoy the time I spend reading and conversing with my fellow bloggers. They help to keep my creative juices flowing!

  2. Nice to see you among the M&G group, Wendy. I've gotten to know you somewhat through Grace's posts and other. I was at the Pine Tree show at the end of July (gee, I almost wrote "last month," but it's September already) and saw some of your work on exhibit.

  9. I admire someone who does whole quilts by hand. I do love hand sewing/stitching/embroidery but quilts generally are machine stitched and quilted. It was nice getting to know you, Wendy.
