Scrappy Embellished Quilt

Thank you for taking the time to pop over to my blogspot and leaving comments. I really appreciate your support, thoughts and encouragement.
Another OPAM for the month of February! I've been working on this for some time now and the binding took ages to hand sew. (That's just how much I enjoy sewing binding). It is very encouraging doing OPAM, it makes me want to get pieces finished.
I'm not sure why they call this scrappy because I start with 6" strips!
All the embellished pieces and motifs are hand sewn.
Hm, Maybe I should have ironed the quilt before taking the photo's.
Have you noticed how long some pictures take to upload? I think it depends on the time of day you are uploading!

I don't mean whatOPAM means but the quilt is so lovely! You must have a lot of patience (is that how you wright it?)doing it al by hand!

Hi Anna,

The quilt is lovely and feminine - love the lace touch.

I too, don't know what OPAM is (I'm just a humble artist after all - no sewing!)

HI Anna, thanks so much for visiting the other day! Your quilt looks beautiful and you definately have a lot of patience to sew by hand. I love sewing too but I hate sewing by hand, give me a machine any day! take care, Maryann

anna :) the quilt is lovely!!! love the little embellishments you added :))

about the uploading being slow.. i opened one of your pictures and it's actual size is very large. definitely over a 1000 px. i suggest you size them down before uploading them. it saves space on your blogger too. did you know you're only allowed a certain amount of upload space in blogger? if you use over your limit, you'll have to pay for extra space. so get a photo software and size your pics down, it will be much faster to load :)) i always size mine down to 1024x768 :)

Hi Anna
Beautifuuuul! The quilt is lovely. I love the fabrics you used and the strips. I haven't seen one quite like that. Now how did you know how to make a quilt like that? I have a new grand niece and a quilt like that would be beautiful for her.
thank you for sharing..

Quilting is another thing I'd love to learn to do :) The list is so long! haha

Beautiful work, do you DO that!? The embellishments add such a nice touch.

Bev said...

I also love what you have done with this piece, each detail stands alone yet looks wonderful all combined together. Great job.

That is really pretty, Anna - so feminine and sweet.
Your photos are huge when I click on them so that's why they take so long to upload.
Reduce the size and they upload very quickly. :-)
