Amsterdam, first Entry for Blogger's Quilt Festival

It's time for Amy`s Blogger`s Quilt Festival again.

For my first entry I chose my "Amsterdam" quilt.
The tulip pattern reminds me of Holland and our trip to Amsterdam last year, hence the name.
I designed this quilt myself. 
I had the beautiful antique pink and green quilts in mind, but wanted something bright and updated. So I used fresh, modern fabrics to achieve the look I had in mind.
 For the outer border, I used this fabric that was absolutely perfect for the quilt.
I hand quilted with perle #8 and adapted the shape of this flower for the quilt design in the setting triangles:
The quilt measures 80" square.
Designed, machine pieced and hand quilted by me.
I would love tho enter it in the Hand Quilting category.
If you would like to make your own version, you can find the pattern here in my Etsy shop. For the time of the festival I reduced the price! ;-)
Thank you for visiting my blog. :-)
And thank you, Amy, for doing the Festival again!
