OPAM April Finishes

Where has April gone? What a busy month in the King household. School holidays, a family holiday to South West Rocks, back to school, work, soccer and getting ready for the local quilt show which starts tomorrow night.

This is one of the quilts which I will be putting in the quilt show. I made this quilt 7 years ago (the second quilt I ever made) and it has sat on my quilt rack ever since waiting for the binding to be put on and the yo-yos to be made for the top righthand block. Why did I procrastinate for so long? Who knows? It was surprising how quickly I got it finished and the satisfaction I feel is fantastic and I can put this down as a OPAM finish for April as well.












This is my flannell roll quilt which I showed a few posts back. It has come back from the quilters and the binding is on. I will also be putting this one in the quilt show.



Another OPAM finish for April.

The quilting is lovely don't you think.



And lastly I made this pin cushion for a friend's birthday.



Now that I have finished off these quilts I can get back into my stitching for the Garderners Journal stitch along. Just need to cut some fabric and I will be ready to put the first block together.

Chat soon

Your quilts look fantastic and so does the pincushion. You must feel so pleased with your second quilt being totally finished! The flannel quilt looks very snuggly...
