V and Co: quilt blog festival


Amy's Creative Side

well it's just like me to yet again show up to the blog quilt festival coming in at a 100 mph and sliding into a parallel parking spot with hair singed and smoke coming off the tips of my hair.
every year i manage to make it at the end with that image running through my mind.

this quilt is called "little sprouts" i made it for the magazine Quilts and More and it was featured with instructions in the spring edition of this year.
you are also able to find kits for it (not too many left!) at the fat quarter shop (thanks kim!)
i love this quilt, it's an applique quilt, using my old dryer sheets method. i like how it's simplicity, and how it keeps with the simplicity of the room.
my mom :)
i snapped this picture as my mom was holding the quilt waiting for me to take pictures of another quilt. she looked all pretty there with my quilt so i snapped it and had to add it.
she's here helping me pack and get ready for our temporary move...so we can permanently move later this summer...yeah we're getting closer to making decisions...stay tuned.

I love your new quilt! What a great pic of your Mom. I hope all goes well with your new temporary move and much success on landing something permanent. I loved seeing you in other blogger's pictures at the quilt show.

I love everything about your quilt....the colors, the simplicity, the pattern. And your mom looks like she is pretty awesome too.

.....but isn't that when we do our best work??? give me all the time in the world and the productive cells go on vacation, but give me a timeline of 'now'.....i go from 0 to 100 in a second!
Love the quilt...i love the calmness and simplicity of it..the perfect baby quilt! And this too is my favorite colour which i am very partial to!

So beautiful in it's simplicity. But I guess I really like your stuff I just made your baby life quilt from bakeshop. Check it out seasonsofhome.blogspot.com. It's the most recent post. Thank you so much.

Love your quilt and your mom is just too cute! :o) I hope to one day enter a quilt, I don't know what it is ... but I never seem to get it together in time. I know, will put the next one on my calendar. Now there's a novel idea! :o)
Gosh, moving. My prayers remain with you!
Have a great week and don't work too hard! :o)

I adore this quilt. I am a huge fan of clean simplicity which you happen to be brilliant at! Glad you survived market ;-)

Kristyne said...

Awesome design - graphic, but soft.

And nifty little dryer sheet tip. I'm going to have to give that a try!

Darci said...

Love the quilt! But really I am excited to here where your husband takes the job. I am rooting for San Clemente as Erin told me we would be so close and could be friends :) Goodluck with the move. I just moved a couple of months ago and it was crazy.

Team Clark said...

Your mom is beautiful!

Rae said...

oh my goodness girl, you're temporary moving like me too? awesome sauce. (not really, but let's pretend it doesn't totally suck to move twice)

Heather at Happy Chippy Junk said...

V. I love the sprout design...and I love your friends house!! How bout a tour. Where are you moving...

Anna said...

Annelies said...

I had this in my "I LOVE IT" pile, but seeing your pics just reminded me that I need to move it to the TOP of my to do list. Adorable, and prayers being said that your moves go well and that your heart and spirit is full of peace. XXX

Val said...

I love your quilt and would like to make one, but I can't seem to find the Spring 2011 Quilts and More anywhere! Is there any other way to buy the pattern? I could wing it I guess, but I really like patterns.

a little bit biased said...

Oh it's so cute! I love it! I hadn't seen it yet...

The country sounds lovely too, by the way. I wonder what took you to such a small town? Well, anyways, welcome to Happy Valley!
Good luck with the move.

What a simple and pretty quilt. My daughter loves dryer sheet appliquéing. I think it works great on big roundish things so your leaves are perfect for that. Signed up to get your updates! Thanks for sharing and have a great day
