I'm so excited that for two months in a row I have actually finished more than one item in a month. Peg and Chris who organise OPAM will be shocked and amazed!!
My first finish is this block holder. A gift for my good friend Caron who recently celebrated her birthday. I couldn't show you earlier because I know she checks out my blog from time to time.
It is made with Tilda fabrics that I thought she might like.
My other finish is a quilt for a special person celebrating her 21st birthday this month. Just needs a label so I can wrap it up for her. The design is a giant log cabin.
I'm really happy with the clam shell quilting Meredith did for me at The Quilting House.
It is backed with a brushed cotton as the recipient feels the cold and I thought it might be snugglier (is that a real word?). Anyway, you know what I mean.
So I am also linking up to Finish It Up Friday with Amanda Jean as well.
Last night I joined in with Friday Night With Friends. I started with a little more free motion quilting.
And some hand quilting on my 'A Legacy from Violet' quilt. I can finally see the finish line!!
This quilt it 98" x 94" and is English Paper Pieced. I have an area 98" x 13.5" to left to quilt!! This has been a VERY long term project.
As I rolled the quilt on this week, I finally got to see the far edge of the quilt in my frame. This is pretty exciting as I started hand quilting this on the 7th June. I'm hoping it might be my finish for Finish It Up Friday next week!!
I worked on this during Friday Night With Friends.
Finally a few photos from the Wendy Williams workshop I attended at Material Obsession last Monday. Lea worked on her camel.
I started a new project called 'Wee Village Town Pillow'. This project is in Wendy's book.
I finished one house...
...made a good start on a tree and attached the contrasting fabric to the cushion backing. As well as picking up a few tips as other people worked on their projects.
This is where I am up to now.
The houses and tree are not attached yet. This is fun and fast. Love playing with felt. Could it be that I will have two finishes for OPAM this month?
I guess my progress will slow down as the school holidays finish up on Monday. But it's been fun and full of lots of stitching get togethers with friends.
