I felt a smaller base for my machine would be best for the quilt on the frame. I drew the pattern on the perspex and left it with my husband while I taught a class on Saturday.
He.broke his first top so had to redraw it. Now I have a Baby Base. 10" x9" and a Big Base 18"x15".
No stopping the ruler work now.

1500metres of Glide Marine thread, 13 hours and the foundations have now been quilted on the Queensland Quilters Inc raffle quilt for this year. The fills, the colours and the pattern fun is still to start. It was only near the end of the base work that the ideas for the decorating came to me.

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.
