OPAM finishes for July..

Earlier this month I downloaded the "Windy Farm" blocks from Antonie Alexander's book "Happy Quilts".. I spend days putting them together, making the Pinwheels for the borders and then it was time to quilt it.....

I meandered around all the animals and little people...






free motioned around all the eyes because that is safer for little ones....







It was tricky doing the tiny chooks and piglets ones...

























but I was delighted to have it done and I love it.....





Tired a few different places to take the photo and Lacy decided to photobomb it...



Last month I joined Sheila for another Postcard Swap... My partner was Linda from SCRAPMASTER...
Linda makes the most amazing quilts sew I was a little worried but I remembered she loved Salvages and of course sewing so this is the Postcard I made and sent to her in Canada....




Linda emailed me to say it arrived sew I could post it . I was pleased she was happy...


If you read the previous post you'll know I was playing with some fabrics I brought home from my DDs.a few weeks ago..

Today I turned it into a cute little Quilt of Love...







and decided to also make a boys one....




That makes four finishes for this month and I would like to thank Peg and Kris for once again organising us for OPAM  this month. It does keep me on track...


Happy Stitching ...
