Foundation piecing light box

I have started piecing another Quiltworx quilt.  I like to make sure the first piece I put on is in the correct place by using a light box.  That way I know I have it covering the whole space.  At home I would put. Light under the clear sewing machine table. Since I am away from home,  I have found I can use a plastic container with a clear lid and my small Ott light inside it.

New library books and techniques

I purchased two new books in the New Year to add to my techniques library.  Then put the techniques into practise with the quilt on my frame.  Used quite a few tools and these are just for the border quilting.

My Daughter's Wedding Quilt.

I was able to finish my daughter's wedding quilt and have it on the bed she would be using when she visited between Christmas and New Year.  Based on Bali Fever by Judy Niemeyer .  Afew special touches in the actual quilting.

My 2 Baby Sisters

I have given myself some time in January to work on my own quilts.  The first one is a class sample for Sew Creative Gatton, based in My 2 Baby Sisters pattern.  I made mine into a table runner instead.  Used my Marti Michell templates to trim the corners neatly.

Then played with the setting.

Trip down memory lane

I have just pulled down my Christmas Tree.  A few days late but I was busy.  As I took the ornaments off it wad a memory trip. I usually bought one new set a year and I dated the boxes.  This year's tree had ornaments from 1989, 1990,  1999, 2002,  2003, 2004, 2005.  Plus every Swarovski Christmas ornament since 1991.  A great relive of some past Christmases.
