OPAM project for July


Wow, we are back and hit the ground running! We are definitely going to homeschool this year, so i am busy getting ready :) I am looking forward to it, but a little nervous too!

I finished a project for OPAM, just not the one I thought I would... here is a photo of a "brown bag" quilt that was put together by my quilt group when I lived near Denver ( ummm... 11 years ago...) but now it is DONE! It turned out seriously pretty and is all hand quilted- hence the time it took for me to complete it! I put in the fall colored star block and I love that someone added the turquoise to the mix :) I am so pleased that it is finished...

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog and leaving a comment. It is always so nice to come to a new blog. Glad you finished that quilt, I like it.

Mama Mel said...

This is gorgeous! I am starting my first quilt for my niece, but I'm sure it won't be as pretty as this... gotta practice some more! ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and entering my first giveaway! Have a great day! :)

Hey that is awesome. Both the quilt and the homeschooling prospect. Yeahhhh.

Jingle said...

That is really nice! Good luck with the home schooling!!!

confused homemaker said...

The quilt is lovely, I'm impressed with finishing it! I have lots of 1/2 or almost finished projects that never seem to get completed.

Kim said...

I love the quilt! It looks awesome! I couldn't do that even if I had 11 years!

Fruitful Vine2 said...

A finished project even after 11yrs is always a reason to celebrate. Tap yourself on the back and say "Go me!"

It's beautiful! I never did any quilting but maybe someday. I could at least stuff in the cotton. Not much of a sewer here. Love the fall colors!

Following you on twitter.

Enjoy your SITS day!

Wow. Quilters impress me. The work just seems so intricate, so well planned. Quilting is truly an impressive skill, in my book. I really want to try quilting, now, with my first child's baby clothes, but I haven't attempted it yet. Thanks for inspiring me this morning and happy SITS day to you again!

Christine said...

This quilt is so pretty! I agree about the turquoise...it gives it a little sass. Love it!

Joy said...

Good job! You're so talented!

Happy SITS day to you!

sandy said...

Caroline said...

I am always so impressed with women who quilt. It is such a beautiful art. This is lovely. These beautiful quilts will be passed down for generations. So special...

sweetjeanette said...

oooooh I just love quilts (you should see my collection) but must admit I've never actually finished one! I bow before you!
ps, being in central florida - have you been to Queen Anne's Lace in Kissimmee?

Happy SITS day!

I am a fellow quilter too. This one is beautiful. And hand quilted too! I'm impressed. I have a Nolting quilting machine I use for that part. Congrats on your SITS day.

That's so pretty! Each of my daughters has a quilt made my one of my husband's aunts. I've always admired the art of quilting.

One Cluttered Brain said...

beautiful quilt. I'm doing one too, although it's not finished yet. I'm alittle slow when it comes to quilting. CONGRATS on the SITS debut thought!

Kristin @ Meanbean said...

What a beautiful quilt! I have made several, but have yet to follow any sort of pattern. Kiddo and I have designed one together, and I will be following that design, so that will be a new one for me!

Will you be using the quilt, or will it be a wall hanging or something?

Marie said...

What is a "brown bag" quilt?

Micha said...

Beautiful quilt. I love the colors and the heart border.

AmericanTribal said...

This quilt is awesome, I also love the turquoise!

Rook No. 17 said...

Beautiful quilt! Always wonderful to hear homeschool success stories! I admire parents who have the energy, creativity and dedication.

2busy said...

You are quite crafty! I can appreciate the work it takes to make a nice quilt. I tried quilting a Christmas tree skirt once. I still use it, but probably won't do that again.

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

Wow! That is really good. I wish I was more crafty. I have my great grandmothers quilt that she made and I love it.

Brandi said...

What an incredible quilt! I wish I had talent like this, but alas, I don't seem to. I can sing and bake and write but I wish I could make things like quilts and jewelry and other fun crafty items.

Christy said...

stopping by from sits...i made my first quilt for my friend's first child. It was hard work, but the best way I could express how much I cherish my friend...and how excited I was for her and her husband.
I need to grab a cuppa and sit back a while to browse through the rest of your blog.
Congrats on your SITS day!

Young Wife said...

Happy SITS day! This quilt is lovely.
