  1. Very cool! Fin to see the pics. One quickie correction I spotted. Wendy's last name is Mamattah.

    Also wanted to let everyone know I'll be in Quilters Newsletter in the August/September issue. They've done a feature article on me and the NY Beauty quilts, and there will be pictures, an interview, and a pattern from one of the quilts.
