August OPAM 2013

Another month has gone by and I only managed one finish for OPAM.  I started this table topper several years ago.  I could not get the binding in one corner to lay flat and square, so I threw it into my UFO basket.  All this project needed was for me to finish the binding!!
At the beginning of August, I decided to pull one item from my UFO basket and what every item came out it would be finished.  I am so glad it was an quick project to complete. I may pick another item from the basket for next month's OPAM.  Well, I really do need to make a dent in my UFO basket.

Festival of Quilts

Baby Girl and I went to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham at the NEC.  We had a very enjoyable time.  We managed to view all the exhibitions and do a little shopping.
I am only writing a short blog today as I need to recover from my visit to the Festival of Quilts. The first photo is Baby Girl standing in front of one of her favourite quilts.  It appears she has very traditional tastes unlike me who loves bright contemporary quilts. The second photo was taken at the Horizon exhibition.   There were sample books that you could photograph and touch.  These sample books gave you more information about how each quilt was made. 
I will write more about the Festival of Quilts over the next few weeks.  I just need so time to recover from a very busy month.
