2017....Heres to a happy New Year to one and all..

Some things I made for gifts mainly for Christmas

Top of the table runner...all sewn with Glyde thread - top and bobbin.

The back - Sewn on my Simply Sixteen - Sam

The back again..
All quilted free Motion Quilting and ruler work

My daughter receiving her gift .. and trying to look surprised!!
She uses it on her table upside down as she like the back of it best ...lol

Sewing on Sam - The third quilt on here  - my own quilt - my BOM from Joanne Threadheads BOM quite some time ago now. 
I still have the final borders to do and the binding... hopefully it will get finished..in between other things ...sometime this year.
I will send more photos of this one soon.

Using  my Simply Sixteen - Sam...first quilt after my practice piece.
I drew the feather stems in in the border, and drew feathers in for a start till I was more comfortable..till the machine didn't feel like it was running away from me. 
most of the quilting was FMQ.

The last two pictures I have put up before...sorry for the repeat !

This was my gift to my eldest daughter..and my first quilt on Sam.  What a learning curve this all was!
I still have my Sweet Sixteen... though I haven't used it much since I have had Sam!

 That's it for now...

Using my lap top and need to do things a little differently next time...

More soon.
