Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Wish Upon a Card
March 28th, 2014 by Wendy

Thank you Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and High Desert Frameworks for the 8th Annual Wish Upon a Card fundraiser for Wendy’s Wish* of St. Charles Foundation (in honor of Wendy S. Huntley who died from cancer).

W: working for early detection; I: increasing cancer awareness; S: supporting each personal journey; H: helping improve the quality of life for others. The money goes towards helping cancer patients and their families with non-medical expenses. It’s a GREAT cause!

The Wish Upon a Card fundraisers have raised over $70,000 in the first 7 years!!!  You can help raise more money by donating or purchasing hand made fiber art postcards (see for more information). The postcards are 4″ by 6″ and generally CAN be mailed with first class postage.

NOTE: My postcards really are 4″ by 6″, without distorted sides. I just can’t take good photos. 

I’ve donated postcards just about every year. This year, as a Quilter’s Affair instructor, I’m donating my “Yellow Fever” postcard for the teacher auction.



I also made a card with for the Michael Miller Fabric Challenge. I used both colorways of the challenge fabric.



I’m also donating a few extra cards. I upcycled some leftovers to make the Rainbow card. And I still have a limited supply of the Hoffman flower fabric, so I cut a few more rabbits. Notice how the placement creates the face, ears and body. I love these cards!



I am making Chinese New Year cards with all 12 animals. I must have given away my Year of the Rabbit- or it went missing on its own. So here is my replacement Year of the Rabbit card, using Echino fabric for the background.
