Bloggers' Quilt Festival

Hello everyone and welcome to the big "Quilt Festival" at
 Amy's Creative Side.Amy's Creative Side 
I want to share with you a miniature quilt I created called "Over the Sea".  This quilt was made for a fund raiser for the Virginian Quilt Museum.   What inspired me to make this little quilt was a larger quilt I made called ......

"Under The Sea".  I created this quilt using a triangle block layout.  Can you find the triangles? There are no "Y" seams in this quilt.  Although it looks like it is complicated to piece, it is quite simple.  There are three different triangle block units.

    1. Thanks Kate, I did a google search on the "in" color at the time I made the quilt and these were the color that were in.

    1. Hi - your profile seems to be set to no-repy so I couldn't reply directly. Thought I'd do it here.

      THank you for your lovely comments. I think I've made about a dozen quilts at this point. I've lost track already! A friend of mine did ask me to share it with her home ec class. Her twelfth graders were making quilts, even the boys. :-)

    1. My daughter Autumn named "Under the Sea", so the wee quilt just had to be "Over the Sea".

    1. The tiny diamonds were created by strip piecing, so it is not as hard to piece as you think

  19. Such a beautiful quilt with no y-seams!!!?! The Michael Miller fabric definitely helps give the quilt movement. I'm currently working on a lap-quilt that is all piecing via y-seams. I just wanted to thank you for stopping by and your kind comments about my quilt :)

You don't want to miss out on the opportunity to have this original Barbara Cline work of art in your collections. Thank you Barbara for this special donation!

  21. That's a huge Twitter fan and updates often. Wrestlers backstage TNA have been thousands upon thousands of professional wrestlers through the years and even credit card bills are being paid by her aging wrestler husband. A website called TheDirty.com posted black-and-white photos pulled from the video’s release in any way. I have lost an amazing show at the behest of the modern era.
