Who am I?

Hi and welcome! I’m a mother to 4 beautiful young woman, who are very quickly it seems spreading their wings. (I really should add to this, as my eldest daughter has not only spread her wings into Marriage and Motherhood but also all the way to Texas!)

My main hobby for the last 28 years has been quilting and for the last 9 years I’ve been longarm quilting for others. I guess you could say I’m passionate about quilting. I’m a fabric collector though in the last few years I’ve tried to only buy what I need (well and some to spare) for projects that I’m working on.

One of my passions is fishing esp my fishing partner  so bear with me as I share pics etc.. of this super important part of my life. Another newer interest is gardening, right now I guess I’m dabbling in it.

Please let me know that you’ve visited by leaving a comment so that I can in turn visit you on your blog.  If you are interested in having me quilt for you please  contact me @ wendysquilting@gmail.com or call 807-251-4261

  3. Hi Wendy, Just found your blog. What a perfect day for me to see it. I love it. I took Bill to the hospital today.

  4. I found your blog today. And I enjoyed reading all about you and your quilting. I am also a long armer, and I often stress about whether or not the customer will like what I do. Although I live in Australia, one of my cousins live in Canada so I especially loved the nature pictures that you posted. I look forward to continue reading your blog.

  5. Hi Wendy, I found you after you posted on my blog and now I’ll be adding you to the list of blogs I follow. I own a quilt shop and yes love to quilt, love to garden (if I can find the time)…

  6. Hi Wendy,
    great to see you out and enjoying the sunshine – But I’m not sure I could deal with handling those fish! (Cleaning them is even worse than holding them – you are a brave woman!).
    Would you mind if I put you on my blog roll? – it makes it easier for me to check in and visit your site.
    Have a nice weekend,

  7. Hi Helen, Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog. I really love to be able to enjoy the outdoors, esp fishing. We live in an area that is surrounded by forest and lakes and so beautiful. I was so excited to see the patterns posted on your blog this morning I can’t wait to see what you do with them. I have several queen sized quilts to make and the patterns and fabric on hand so I’m trying really hard not to add to my collection. I’m so tempted by all the beautiful quilts I see on line. Please do add me to you list, I will add you to mine too. The computer really does make the world so much smaller doesn’t it. Wendy

  17. Hi Wendy, I got your card from Fabricland. I started a quilt for my son about a year ago now and I really want to get it finished before he is too old to enjoy it. It is 80x 106″. I have completed the top quilting and I have the bottom fabric and quilt batting. I do not have the experience or proper sewing machine to sandwich together the layers and finish off the edges. I am wondering if you have the time to finish it for me and how much you would charge to do this. I can send you pictures if you would like to see what I have done. It is my first quilt. Thank you Andrea

  18. Hi Andrea, I did reply on my blog not sure if you saw it. I would love to help you finish your quilt please call me at 251-4261 Wendy

  19. Hi Wendy, I was searching the internet for some history on Shabaqua and came across a post of yours regarding the old school and I was wondering if you had any other information regarding the Erickson family that owned property out there in the very early 1900’s.
    Thanks for any info you might have!
