Grow Your Blog 2015 and Giveaway

This is a special blog post for Grow Your Blog 2015.

Hello, and welcome to my blog. Thanks you for stopping by. I know this is a busy time as everyone tries to visit as many new blogs as possible, so I'll keep this quite short. You can always come back later if you like what you see.

My name is Wendy and I live in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. I'm in my late 40's, happily married with two teenage sons. I work part time as an accountant and fit my quilting and embroidery in around work and family commitments.


the view from my house

I started my blog just over a year ago, and since then I have met so many lovely online friends. I discovered people with similar tastes and styles as my own through the Grow Your Blog event in 2014. I'm still in regular contact with some of those people now because we follow each others blogs and Instagram accounts. I'm @wendysquiltsandmore on Instagram if you'd like to look me up.

I try to blog at least once a week, and sometimes I even manage two posts in a week. Some people tell me they come to visit my blog for a burst of colour. That's probably because I just love colour - there's no white or grey in my stash!

Trellis Crossroads

Trellis Crossroads is one of the quilts I made in 2014. I saw this block on the internet made with a white background. I've never made anything with a white background, so I decided to use some bright batiks against a navy background. I quilted it with hot pink cotton.


Bordered Peacocks

I also finished my Bordered Diamonds quilt in 2014. I used a Kaffe Fassett pattern, and the beautiful Plume range from Timeless Treasurers. I hand quilted this quilt over more than a year. We have it on our bed in winter.


My version ofla passacaglia


This year I'll be working on my la passacaglia quilt. It's all hand stitched using the English Paper Piecing method. I intend to use the Kaffe Fassett Paperweight fabrics as my inspiration. You can see all my other quilting WIPs here.



Gingerbread Village

I also love embroidery and I have many hand stitching projects on the go. I finished the Candy Cane Cottage and Bakery in the Gingerbread Village in 2014, and would like to add two more buildings in 2015 (the patterns are from The Victoria Sampler). You can see my full 2015 embroidery list here.


The tabs at the top of my blog link to more photos of my quilts and embroidery. Possum Magic is a round robin that I'm part of and you can see how each of the 8 quilts are progressing as they move between the members in Australia and New Zealand. I've made great friends though Possum Magic and I'm so glad I found those ladies through the 2014 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop.


Giveaway
We all need more fabric, so I'm running a give away of the 5 fat quarters below.



If you'd like to win, please leave me a comment below. Any comment will do, but if you need a prompt, you could tell me where you went for your last holiday. 


My last holiday - Muriwai, Auckland, New Zealand

Followers old and new can get a second entry by leaving a second comment telling me how you follow. It could be bloglovin, feedly, GFC, instagram etc.

Giveaway, count me in! Hi Wendy - my last hol was in November. My family went to South Australia for the first time. The breezes were warm so were the people. We drank lovely beers, ate delicious foods and drove through several kilometres of wheat fields! We even visited a barb wire museum with a pub attached of course!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

Hi Wendy i think I found you last year through someone else's blog but I'm really not sure. Our last vacation was two months in a 25 foot motorhome touring through the National parks in Wyoming and Montana - we had a blast.

Judy Barr said...

Hi Wendy
It is Australia Day today. we will have celebrations all over the country and fireworks this evening in the capital cities.
I am currently on vacation on the Mornington Peninsula. It is a beautiful seaside spot south of Melbourne. My extended family started holidaying here about a hundred years ago. I came here as a child, had a break then brought my children, had another break and now we are back again. I love the atmosphere and most of all, the long walks in the cool of the evening along the sand.

Hi Wendy! It's nice to meet you and see what a beautiful place you live in! Maybe someday I'll get there and experience the beauty myself. (Fingers crossed.) Your quilts are just breath-taking, as is the fabric bundle. Purple has always been my color and this is perfect for me! Have a wonderful week!

Great to read another blog from the southern hemishpere. I'm in Central Qld. My DH and I had a 9 week camping holiday at the end of last year.

We went to Las Vegas on our last vacation/holiday. It sucked. We both ended up sick and stayed in our hotel for the whole week we were there. Luckily we only live 5 hrs from there and we can go back anytime. BUT STILL it's Vegas...no fun when you're sick. UGH!

I have recently found your blog and absolutely love your work, it's very beautiful. I am new to quilting and so far am just working on something that could be called crazy quilt blocks. I seem to be making it up as I go along! A couple of the things I have created have turned into pictures and I am going to explore that some more. I, not so secretly, don't think I have the patience for cutting thousands of shapes exactly the same size.

Visiting from GYB. Love your colorful quilts because color is my thing too. No beiges, browns, etc. unless for a special request.

I follow you on GFC. I think I started following last year.

I haven't been on holiday since 2012, but my husband and I did it up big and went on a cruise, staying on the concierge deck. Thanks for the pretty giveaway - purple is my favorite! jacklynnsteven at netzero dot com

Hi I live in Cordova Bay on Vancouver Island Canada. I love to sew and I make quilts, clothes and toys for my grandchildren. I think your quilts are awesome. My last holiday was to Aukland!!!!! Love New Zealand. My brother lives in CHristchurch and my niece got married in a vinyard north of Aukland on December 1, 2014. I toured the area north of Aukland for 2 weeks it is stunning.
