Goals for OPAM September
Haven't been so busy in my sewing room lately, but I got to start on a new project :o)
I went to my quilt guild's meeting earlier this week, and I bought Gail Pan's new book " Baskets in bloom". It's a great book, with a lot of beautiful work with stitcheries and appliques. I did fall in love with a little wallhanging called " Little Basket Blue". The original is stitched with light blue variengated dmc thread, but I decided to use my favourite colors, purple... :o)
Finished size is 9" by 11", and it's going to be hung on the wall with a frame in wood.
It's lovely, isn't it?
I forgot to report my goals for the OPAM this month, and I have two goals. The one is the stitchery above, and the second is the wallhanging I started some time ago, a stitchery project by Cinderberry stitches:
Today I finished cutting all the pieces for the next charity quilt. I got to pick up some more fabrics from Sølvi at the quilt guilt meeting, and my mom is going to piece it togheter. This is the pile of pieces:
Lots of different fabrics, but I think it will be a great quilt :o) I forgot to take a picture of the baby quilt she made, but I know it's on it's way to a little baby girl soon :o)
Guess Sølvi will have photos of the care quilts as they are delivered to her at the care quilt blog "Tepper til St. Olav".
I am going to work some more on my purple quilt today, and hopefully I get to finish it this month, but I don't wanna rush it. I am not a speed piecer all the time, but as long there is progress - it will be finished ;o)
Enjoy your Sunday,
