Quilt of Valor - Ready for Binding

I may be repeating myself, but I love the Red Snappers used to attach a quilt to the leaders.  The Red Snappers were purchased  at the Houston Quilt Show and now with practice under my belt, I had this top ready for quilting in 15 minutes.  This includes loading the backing to the leaders, basting the batting onto the backing, then basting the top (which I float) onto the sandwich.

The QOV Top was made by my friend Mary, now a resident of Pittsburgh as of this past weekend. If I had to guess, Mary and her hubby Howard are busy unpacking the fabric and sewing supplies first.  I will add the binding and then beg my sister Phyllis to do the handwork on the binding to finish for mailing.

Off to work ......

Wonderful quilting pattern and love your work. Bet Mary will be very happy when she gets it back.

By floating, do you mean that you don't pin the bottom of the top layer to the rollers? How does this work better? Thanks!

Thanks for the comment on the red snappers. I don't have a longarm right now, but I will again sometime, and I thought they looked pretty neat.
