OPAM finishes for June


June passed as quickly as the other months. 
I've been busy quilting and have some finished items. I made some Christmas items, but ran out of fabric and batting and finally got it earlier this week. The batting should be in this week. 

While waiting, I made some mug rugs from Christmas scraps. It feels good to use up those small pieces of fabric as well as batting. 

I've had this piece of fabric forever. Finally decided to fussy cut the houses and couple and made them into a set of 4 coasters. 

A piece of lobster fabric was just sitting there from the others I made earlier.
I made a bigger trivet of what was left. 

'Had forever fabrics' turned into a table topper. 

Nifty Nurses mug rugs 

I love making these mug rugs.
Actually I'm working on a custom order of 6 nurse mug rugs. Four of them are almost done, and I love the personalized look. Photos of those will be later when all are finished.

It's time to vote in the first QQQ team UFO challenge

QQQ team UFO challenge - Time to vote! 

This year,  for the very first time,  the Quilts Quilts Quilts team on Etsy has a UFO (UnFinished Objects) challenge. I think we all have UFO's, don't we, and sometimes we need that little kick behind to finish them. 
 The 'fee' for each entry - finished or not - is 1 (one) fat quarter (fabric), so the lucky winners (there will be 2 winners) will get a lot of FQ's! 

From January to end of June participants have been working really hard to finish as many UFO's as possible.
We had 70 entries to the challenge and we have 47 finishes! 

My entry was 8 (eight) UFO's, you can see them all here. If it hadn't been for the challenge, I'm not sure I had finished them all! I just needed that little kick behind! :) 

Now it's time to vote! 

How to vote; click on the link and it takes you to the QQQ team blog where you will find another link to the entries. Leave a comment on the QQQ team blog post - not on this post, it won't count. 
The voting is open to everyone, except 'anonymous'.
