2012 Blogger's Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side


It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by AmysCreativeSide.com.  It's a virtual quilt show and there are always so many beautiful quilts to see.

My problem is, each quilt I make is my favorite, each and every one.  It's hard to feature just one!  But here it goes.

Janice Elaine Sews Kites Patchwork quilt.

I named this quilt Simple Kites Patchwork Quilt.  It was my first time making Half Rectangle Triangles, and it was easy and simple.  I pinned a great tutorial for HRTs, here.  I asked my long arm quilter to use this flying kite design and I love the way the quilting turned out.

I piece the backs of 95% of my quilts, it's such a fun way to use up scraps and to add interest.  The quilt measures 66.75 X 41.5.

  5. This is one of those examples of how a beautiful quilt top and back combined with beautiful quilting becomes so much more than either of them alone. Just lovely.

  6. I too made a quilt using the half rectangle triangle technique from the Modern Quilt Guild's blog. I love the colors of your quilt and how it turned out so simple and beautiful.

  14. Such a fun, whimsical quilt. Your quilter used the perfect design of wind gusts and kite tails to finish your pretty project so perfectly.
    Love the back. I try not to make quilt backs from only one fabric. That's a missed opportunity to have fun.
