OPAM, FNWF, RSC and Chookshed Party

May was an incredibly busy month.  I went on a quilting blitz, and finished many projects for OPAM.  The final one got its final stitches before I went to bed on the 31st.  This is one of two quilts made from my RSC16 blocks.

The second quilt, from string blocks, is pieced, but is waiting for my quilting machine to have a little spa treatment next weekend.  I guess I worked her to hard in May.  Looking back at previous posts, I have a green doll quilt, a teal baby quilt, a log cabin, and ugly pink quilt, my diary quilt, my challenge quilt, and this machine cover that I haven't yet shared.

There were also 11 place mats for Meals on Wheels.

For FNWF, I prepped some applique for the borders of my little Baltimore Album quilt.  I pieced the top, and hope to make major progress on the borders in the coming week.

I was supposed to be sewing with the girls today for Chooky's 5th Annual Chookshed party, but I may or may not have attended a quilt show with friends instead.  And I may or may not have purchased 3 new books.

A minimal fabric purchase was made of 3 fat quarters for a specific project.  I found a fourth book that I really wanted, but had to walk away.  I can always shop on Amazon later, right?

And now I must sign off and head over to the party!

Keep on stitching.......Sunny

More on this adventure later!!

  14. Man, he, man, you've been a busy girl! Your RSC16 quilt is so pretty. I should make a cover for my sewing machine, too. It's been on 'the list' for more years than I can count! I don't sew much for myself.
