Hello, and welcome. I’m Wendy Welsh and I’m a modern hand quilter from New Zealand.
What does that mean? It means I make modern quilts and I hand quilt them with colourful threads - Aurifil 12wt and Perle 8 are my favourites.
I've been married for 25 years and we have two teenage sons aged 17 and 19, but I’ve promised not to mention them on the blog, so I’ll say no more about them!
I"m an accountant, but I’ve also spent a number of years working in IT on financial management systems. I currently work for the New Zealand Institute of Patent Attorneys.
I love working with bright colours. I enjoy embroidery as well as quilting, and feature both on my blog. You can see more of the things I've made on the tabs across the top of the page. Thank you for visiting.
Flower Garden wall hanging. This is wool felt applique flowers, hand stitched onto the background. I really enjoyed making this quilt and have since made cushions using the same method. I loved doing all the hand stitching in this quilt.
