Friday Show-N-Tell


Very good friend Mary is visiting this week -- lots of visiting and shopping!  While here, I quilted a baby quilt she had just finished, giving me an opportunity to try out my new "Red Snappers" (a system for loading quilts on the long arm -- no more pins!).  I watched the You Tube video demonstrated by Renae Haddadin and found them very easy to work with - and FAST!


Still wanting to try those "Red Snappers" again, my sister Phyllis finished a cute little crazy patch, so I loaded it on -- what a SNAP!!!  


Saving the best for last, Blog Reader Friend, Amy Loar sent me a picture of her finished project inspired by my pattern "Missy's Fall Garden".  Her project started with a block exchange in their Bee.  Amy appliqued the centers to the flowers, snipped the edges and assembled on point -- Awesome Finish gifted to a very special young lady Amy knows. There is nothing more flattering when a quilter makes a pattern her own by adding those special touches.

Now I am heading over to Sarah's, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, for a link up to her Black Friday Party.  Then I am heading to the sewing room for a little "Easy Street" Sewing with Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery Quilt.

Love what Amy did with your Bake Shop pattern and such an easy exchange/friendship block!!! Will definitely have revisit this pattern! Also, will check out that method of attaching the quilt fabrics to the frame. Interesting. Love your site and really enjoy your posts. Hugs, Doreen

Pretty quilts, Jamie! I'll have to check on those "red snappers", although I've gotten pretty fast at loading a quilt on. How long does it take you now?

Thanks, Jamie! Your pattern was wonderful, and it was generous for you to share it with the blogosphere in Moda Bake Shop. I really enjoyed making it. A toast to your creative spirit!
