A nice Japanese box

A couple of weeks ago I made this wonderful Japanese box. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun!!!!
This is the front side.

I already made up what is going inside the box!

Exactly........ my Aurifill yarn.

I used striped and chequered fabrics in Pastel colors and the brown fabrics are original Japanese fabrics.
This is the top of the box.

Block Aunt Sukey's choice

The next block is also finished. I used a nice fabric for the center piece. This reminds me of the fact that I bought the fabrics in the USA, and reminds me also at the wonderful time we spent there!!!!!

Another SBS block

I'm also finished a next SBS block , this one is called "Arizona".
And as you can see, I already made a part of the sashing around the block.
So when I finished all the blocks, I can stitch them together right away. It will save me a lot of time in the end.

Last week I finally sandwiched the table runner that is ready since a couple of months or so!
I decided for myself to finish some projects. So I also start quilting as you can see on the picture above.
I wish the work was already done, I'm curious how it is going to look on my table!

And here is number 4, this one is called "Amethyst"
I"m now working on the sashings between the blocks. I put on every bottom and right side of the blocks the sashing and a little square. I won't wait until I made all the blocks.
I"m afraid that I don't like that job then.

Back in Town

Hello everyone,

Al already been back in town for two weeks. The jetlag is gone and the everything is back to normal.
We had a wonderful time in The States and I really enjoyed it to see my dear Daughter Judith again. We spent several days with her!
We, my husband and I had a wonderful tour around the canyons and several National parcs.
And now we love the country, and we will go back in a few years.

And of course I visit some quilt shops. My assignment was to buy the fabrics for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. And it was a good idea to do this, because otherwise I would not know what to buy.
The stores where packed with lovely fabrics.

On the photo above you can see my purchase. It was so much fun to do, and even my husband got the hang of it.
