~OPAM (One Project A Month) July 2014~

A little late here for OPAM this month
I have just quilted this quilt finished back in 1999
I had no idea back then about 'in the ditch' so this one was done in Perle thread
At the time I just did a red heart around the heart

Some swirls in the corners
and a frame in perle just outside the green border
Now I have gone back and 'ditched' it and added another red stitched line in the tulip border
And it feels so good

Angel background
I call it my Tulip Quilt
Done at a Workshop in Bathurst with Yan Pring

And a just for fun pic I even hung it on our wall here just after we moved here
You can just see the outline of the red stitching, top left

Thank you Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM again this year!

Tik skaista sega ar ziedu sirdi. Un žēl eņģeļus kārt pret sienas pusi...
Pie mums valda karstums, vakar sasniegts Latvijas rekords +37,2 grādi.

Good morning, beautiful! Dzintra, you artists make my head spin in delight, always in wonder of how you gather up the PATIENCE to put everything together so nicely so that it looks so organized at the end! LOVELY!!!!

What a gorgeous heart!! I think it's great that you went back and added more stitching so now you are even more happy with it. It's lovely to see the photo of you with it on the stairs.
