OPAM July - one more finish

Some days ago I finalised the binding around this little table runner. It is made out of leftover blocks from French Senses blanket. The fun is the quilting done on mashine. It is made after a template in the middle fields and "Lise Bergene" curves along the edges. I think it worked out nicely. Another three left over blocks are being handquiltet (this has been ongoing for some months as the quilting is quite dense).
I have been sewing most of the day - besides looking at a Disney movie with my son and eating cake...... Actually this morning I was sewing a bit with him as well. He has been sewing a nice pocket to a small bag which he shall use for notepapers to the Trombone.

I dreamed of another finish - and almost did it. I have sewn another tablerunner - AnnKa design - and I am so happy with the result. I am only missing the binding, but it will not be done today and will be on the August list of finishes ( I hope) :0)

With best wishes for a nice quilting Sunday to all of you,

Hytta !!!!

Å tenke seg ..... vi har fått hytte. Det er en herlig sak, som vi har leid på åremål. Den er helt aldeles vidunderlig og ligger med utsikt over vannet. Her koser vi oss stort - også på kvelder som denne hvor det regner.
Det har blitt lite søm denne sommer, men jeg har fått sydd et par av eventyr blokkene til eventyrteppet og en løper holder på å få lukkekant. Snart kommer det mer blogging og snart er ferien slutt - uhuuuuuuuu.

A finish !

It is finally done. This is a "copy from the head" of a pillowcase I saw at Katrines quiltestue a long time ago. I bought the fabrics and I have been touching them gently from time to time. A week ago I cut the squares and sewing was done quite easily. Adding all the nice laces was a bigger job.
Anyway I am happy with the result - next one is going to be in rose colours for a good friend.... Need that one to be ready in September for a birthday.

This should have been finished last month, but I missed the buttons so sewing them in the pillow case was left for this evening. Now it is done, and hence the first OPAM for July.

NB! My quilt was chosen for the string quilt parade.Pop over to Loft creations and have a look !
