A Fabulous First Quilt

We invited a new girl to our guild last week.

Wendy Kittelson

This is is her FIRST quilt.

RIDICULOUS.....that's all I can say.

I think we are going to be learning alot from her!!


She started with...as she says....some Walmart fabrics

made her horse head...


All with just a pinterest picture for inspiration


Terry Whitman quilted it for her.

Terry 'suggested' a flange and Wendy pulled it off!!


She does have a quilting Aunt but none the less!!


She did a spectacular job!!

She only owned it a couple of weeks as it was auctioned off this weekend
 at
 Dr.Brown Auction in Oungre,Sk.

It went for a whopping 2,200$!!!


Super job, Wendy!
(but we are all scared now....going to have to up our game!!)

  3. I'm wondering how Wendy will acquire the last name of Marcotte to REALLY be a part of your group. She's definately got the quilting talent needed.
