First Kit Finish!

When Wendy from North Bay, Ontario wrote to say she had finished her Maritime Beauty from the kit she purchased from Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium, she really meant FINISHED.  I figured she meant the piecing, but she's got it quilted, bound and hanging on her wall.  It's beautiful!  I love how her quilting makes that gold cross in the centre stands out so prominently- it's looks very medieval.

Wendy writes:  I am in love with it.  When I buckled down to it, it was finished in a week...Thank you also for the detailed quilting suggestions.  This is my 3rd completed project and my Christmas one is on the table, finally.
Pretty impressive for only her third project!  Wendy shared another on this blog awhile back.  Please make sure you leave a comment for Wendy.  We understand that Kate is working on hers at a retreat this weekend, so hopefully there will be another to share soon.

Don't forget that we are approaching the end of the first week of the Mirror Ball Dot Blog Hop and Mark will soon be drawing for winners of some luscious Fat Quarters of this unique fabric.  Make sure you leave a comment on his blog, The Mad Hatter of Maui, to get yourself entered for the draw.
