April OPAM

After my walk and coffee with the ladies I came home to work on finishing "Fabric Fusion" quilt for this month's OPAM..

Going along nicely when I realised the quilt was double and then I needed to do reverse quilting.

after the unpicking and making sure the quilt stays nice and flat I got on with finishing the quilt. Binding and all.

A finish just in time for April OPAM along with the small finishes HERE  Thank you KRIS and PEG

Even though I don't have many complete finishes I have been busy working on "Fernhill" by Lynette Anderson....

and the first block for  "Seaside Town" has arrived sew need to work on it too......

Also I had to catch up with my blocks for " Patchwork Quilt -A- Long "

Still no computer sew this post has taken ages to post on my dear old laptop...I think it will be a new one :(

Happy Stitching..

Hugz  Maria :)


  1. There you are!!!! love the quilt--nice and colorful and I know it must feel good to have it all finished--love the 2 little embroidery ones you are working on--!!
    I am also doing the Patchwork one--but if you seen my last post--yesterday you can see and know that mine did not comeout so nicely--and I just don't get it--I know my cuts are correct--and I really thought my 1/4" seam allowance was correct--but they are not goooood---soooo--now what---
    enjoy the moments,di

  2. Lots of nice projects on the go.......

  3. One of the benefits of not having a decent computer, is there's more time for stitching! You got a lot done, my friend!!

  4. You achieved quite a lot in April. You even inspired me. I love your fabric fusion quilt and I really want to make one. Yours looks lovely.

  5. Love your quilt & projects. Hugs,xx

  6. I love that quilt so much. Did you sew the white as sashing or are the pieces appliqued on top? Lots of lovely box and as always I am very jealous of your nearby beach...

  7. That beach looks like a great place to walk. Is a shame to have to do reverse stitching, but the quilt looks fantastic!! The blocks you have made are gorgeous too.

  8. Your reverse sewing turned out beautifully. Such lovely sewing Maria. Extremely jealous of your morning walk xxx

  9. Walking and sewing , How we spend our time is precious and you have a wonderful shoe for your time. Just lovely.

  10. What a great quilt! I love the colours of your blocks too. Good luck with the hunt for a replacement computer x

  11. The quilt is gorgeous the stitcher....fantastic blocks 😍😍

  12. I love the bright colours and fabrics you are using

  13. what a beautiful finish! don't you hate when the fabric doubles up like that? I know I do

  14. Such a great feeling to finish a quilt! And within your self-imposed deadline too! It is a beauty. I love scrappy quilts. I like your quilt along blocks too.

  15. I always love your beach pics Maria!
    Glad it wasn't too much of a nuisance to fix the quilt backing - the Fusion has turned out FAB - terrific use of the little pieces. How big is that quilt?
    Very pretty progress on your two Lynette projects.
