.... and HELLO July...

My OPAM projects... 

Little Apples Baby Quilt, winter wallhanging, Little Bit French lavender bag and doily, soap (NEW craft!!), Little Village quilt , Welcome Wallhanging, Paper pieced mini quilt and Colour and Carry folders....
not sure if the soap counts but it was fun to make...

I won some scraps from Art Gallery... and when they arrived they were quite big pieces in lovely turquoise shades - I have been wanting to use the apple core with my Go Baby so I have been sewing these this week.... 

LOOOOOAAAAAAAADS of pins... small stiches going slow....


two little baby quilt tops  ready to put together and quilt....


I will do some quilting and then
my new challenge is to do proper bias strips so I can bind round those curves

Little Bit French gift in the post..... mine is going overseas so I sent it in a Little Bit of Downunder dishtowel....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THE BIRDBATH

This is the little fairy wren in his winter colours... very shy and quick so I don't too often manage a picture....


Righto, Gotto Go..... bias binding to make

I do hope you all have a magnificent July

You've had a very productive June and I love those apple core quilts. A curved binding sounds nice.

lovely seeing your june in pics.
Gorgeous apple core quilts, looks like they came together quite quickly.
Seems like everybody like to visit your outdoor spa.

Love your project collage. More like you finished one a week, I thought OPAM was monthly? LOL
Little birdies are cute. And the apple core quilts are going to be wonderful.

Karen said...

A very productive month. It must be very satisfying to look at all you have achieved. Soap making sounds like a lot of fun. Good luck with the new activity.
Using the apple core design for those baby quilts is a great idea. The colours look great, too.
Isn't that fairy wren delightful. They are so tiny. Lovely to see them coming in to the bird bath.

You have set a cracking pace for June. Love your apple cores, and they look good in those fabrics too. We only seem to get big birds in our bird bath, so I am very envious of your wren

Bonnie said...

Beautiful work and what a productive month you have had!

Mistea said...

You have had a very productive month! I'm wondering what opam stands for? I love those apple core's too.

Sisbabestitches said...

Oh the apple core quilt tops are gorgeous in all that turquoisey. Wow, bias binding on those curves, that is a challenge! Again you have made so many beautiful things this (last) month.

Sue B said...

You had a very busy June, I love everything you made but the colours in the apple core quilt, and the little village are my favourites.

Charlie and Wendy said...

Wow, you do get a lot done, all your June projects are beautiful, love your new apple core quilt too. Hugs.

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

You have had a super productive month and reminded me that I was going to do a monthly OPAM post .... woops I forgot! I will blame my Kindle .... love a good book :) Enjoy what's left of the weekend, hugs

Sunnybec said...

I think you have got more finished in one month than I get done in the whole year!! Your little apple core quilts are beautiful! Not sure I would have the patience to bind around all those curves. Hugs xx

Jennifer said...

You did well to photograph that little wren.....they dart so quickly, they are hard to photograph!

Jindi's Cottage said...

Whew! You have been a busy bee...well done...I've an apple core project on the wall, well it's been there for a while, it's such a fabulous shape and yours look great in the yummy turquoise fabrics...

Quilt Kitty said...

Fiona, all that finished in 1 month - good on you. I love the paper pieced mini quilt especially, the fabrics are beautiful. Your applecores are coming together well & the fabric is great. I hope July is filled with lots of beautiful finishes too. Tracee xx

Deb R said...

what a busy month you had!! Apple cores look great!!

Susan said...

Hope the bias binding goes OK. I've always loved that apple core shape and saw how they can go together using paper piecing the other night - very clever. Having a go-baby would make it so much easier - lucky you!

Such a wonderful mix of finished lovelies, Fiona! Quilting, soap-making, paper-piecing, hand-stitching, curved piecing...you know how to do so many things so well!
Lovely things to see. I'm inspired.
