Bloggers Quilt Festival

Spring '14 Blogger's Quilt Festival - AmysCreativeSide.comThere are several categories in this years Bloggers Quilt Festival. 

Here is my entry in the mini quilt category.

 
I have been playing along in the background with a local 12 x 12 group.  I missed out on getting into the first group and we are waiting to start a second group.  In the meantime I decided to make a small quilt for each of their topics.  I am using as practice to improve my skills. 
The topic for this quilt was "Link".   This is my daisy chain - it is the first time I have made a 3D quilt with the addition of the netting and large daisy in the centre.

I love this idea. The 3D effect is very appealing. I just had to come over for a look from your thumbnail.

The linking of the daisies is a cute idea. Great job!

I like the 3d affect.
I love all the mediums in your quilt, so much texture. Even the print on the base fabric looks like it's minky. Cute.

QUILTY 365

This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to http://quiltyfolk.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/january-quilty-365-linkup.html
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project. 

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Spring"
"Vintage"        
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.
