World Map Quilts - Blogger's Quilt Festival



Hello all,

I am entering this quilt (these quilts) in the Blogger's Quilt Festival on Amy's Creative Side in the Original Design category. So please please VOTE FOR ME.

I originally wanted to make a whole world map quilt but realized it would be too big and I wouldn't be able to baste and quilt it. So I decided to make 2 quilts and split the world in half. (No, there is not political undertone here, not an intentional one anyway).

I ended up with one quilt showing the Western World, the Americas and Europe and the Eastern World with Russia and Asia. In case you are wondering, yes I am planning to try and create one world map with this design but I will have to work with much smaller pieces to make that work. The quilting is slightly different on them, the Western World has big wavy lines on it and I quuilted the eastern World in straight vertical lines.

I hope you like these quilts. I absolutely love them.





I have listed them in the shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/QuiltedBlissByNadine where you can see some more pictures of them. 

Lots of love, Nadine

  4. they look great, the bold colours are striking. The squares would have to be quite small to fit the whole world on one quilt, I suppose.

  9. How fun! This would be cool as a double sided quilt - western continents on the front and eastern continents on the back! I love how it is pixelated, but not hugely so. Nice work.

  12. I love this! I have been scheming of a world map using triangles so I am super excited to see yours. I love map quilts so much! Love the idea of flipping it over and having the other half of the world.
