OPAM finishes for August

HAPPY SEPTEMBER!

Where did August go?! I must have been busy! Actually I have; house & garden, and quilting - of course. One week went by to paint the bedroom walls and while doing that, 'Nina' was in for a long overdue service. Got her back yesterday and I'm ready for more productive days. :)

Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I love the colors. I'm definitely living in the wrong country; no such colors here in the tropics. 
I've been working with autumn themed fabrics lately and here's a few items...


Set of 4 place mats


Table runner

I've had these flannel fabrics for ages and decided to turn them into a baby quilt. 


A finished UFO table topper. You can see it here as a UFO.  



Enough snowman fabric for a candle mat


A set of 2 Christmas place mats

These items are for sale in my Etsy shop

I'm currently working on some Halloween mug rugs. I thought I didn't have Halloween themed fabric, but yes, I found a few! :)

Do you stick to your fabric diet so far this year? I had forgotten I'm on fabric diet and have bought way too many fabrics lately, but how to avoid beautiful autumn- and Christmas fabrics?! I hope to do better the rest of the year and ONLY buy what I actually need! :)

HAPPY QUILTING!

Hi Are there any quilting groups in Mauritius? Am moving to the island soon as was wondering if there are any groups?

Så mye fint du har sydd Astrid :-) Jeg elsker de spisebrikkene dine, nydelige farger :-) Kan jeg spørre hvor du har kjøpt stoffene???

I have kind of forgotten that I was on a fabric diet and somehow more fabric has made it's way into my home! I have been using fabric up though and have only bought on sale other than one purchase that was needed to be able to finish up a quilt. You have been making pretty things and yes you are in the wrong country for fall!! LOL

It has been lovely to see all that you have been making in August. I think the Autumn colours are lovely. But of course I always love seeing the Christmas projects, no matter what time of year it is.
