Little Amsterdam - Our First Work+

Here is our first work, as North Sea Quilters: Little Amsterdam, which was designed in mind of creating a keepsake about The Netherlands, that we would all like to take home, once we move to another country. We incorporated the images of the canal houses of Amsterdam with the colors of the Delft Blue china. The houses are made after existing houses along the canals of Amsterdam.

We are very proud of it and we received a lot of positive comments, but the real test will be next week, as Little Amsterdam is entered into the European Quilt Championship in Waalre in The Netherlands.

If you would like to see this quilt, you can visit the European Quilt Championship in Waalre, from 25-28th October.

Hello! I'm new to blogging, but just figured out if I click on the word "patchwork and quilting" in someone's profile (my just has "quilter" in it), I get a list of other people who are quilters too! That's how I managed to wander in here and see your absolutely gorgeous quilt! My grandmother was Dutch and I hope to visit the Netherlands someday. Nice to see there are quilters there!

Hi Yvonne! I'm sorry for the delay in replying, but I neglected my blog until now, as it was quite a busy time for us. Thank you for your comment. When you visit the Netherlands, don't hesitate to write to me and I'm happy to give you some actual info about quilting exhibitions, patchwork shops in the Netherlands. We have a very large and active quilting community here.
I wish you a Happy 2008 year!
