ELOKUU - Jotain valmista OR OPAMs in August

I did it!
'Winter Vanilla' (55cm x 55 cm) is finished!!
Oh, do I hear some tiny applause ,o) 

I was thinking hard quilting figures.

First I thought of some kind of bare branches pattern, which I saw at Leah's blog. But it was difficult to sew in those small cream background areas. Even the practicing with the pen didn't helped... 

I almost gave up... until I figured and remembered the shape of vanilla flowers... and vanilla pod...

I'm pretty sure, if you think hard... you can see them here ;o) 

I quilted mainly with the white thread, only the vanilla pods are quilted with the brown variegated thread.

All the squares are 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"...
so the churn dash blocks are no more than 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". The churn dash blocks I stitched in the ditch.

The backing fabric is Antique 1800's Blends from In The Beginning fabrics. I love those graphic birds and flowers! The binding fabric is dusty green from one of the Lecien's collection.

Apparently you all are now tired of my stories about 'Winter Vanilla'... I promise you this was the last tale of it ;o)

This hexagon pincushion is my other OPAM in August.
Oh, I wish I could be more productive in the future!

But now
I wish you a great weekend;o)

PS. If you don't hear of me for a little while, it's a sign that my computer will be broken. Lately I have had big problems opening it. Maybe I must go to the computer shop instead of the quilt shop... hmmm...

Onpakaunis! Miten ihmeessä sait nuo pikkutilkut pysymään järjestyksessä ommellessasi, ei ole ainakaan minun vahvinta lajiani. Tikkaus sopii hyvin ja sen värivalinnat ovat just nappiin!
