So I finally tried the John Flynn quilt frame and rate it 5 stars! Listen to the show and find out what I did wrong, what I did right and how to create your own leaders.
Podcast: Episode 4 – Flynn Is In!
Yea! I finally have music. I know it’s a bit long and needs to be edited down, but I thought it was fun for now. I will shorten it later. The music is “Luv My Mama” from the CD Blues Tunes at:
Things I have been working on:
I apologize for the picture quality. Our professional camera died and it is at the camera doctor being repaired. Apparently, it is going to take months before we learn whether it is going to live or die. In the meantime, please be patient with pictures from my iPhone and my little CoolPix.

Memory Quilt from baby shower - Final pictures to come soon!!!!
The triplets quilts are finished!!! Well, the binding is on but I haven’t stuck a label on them yet. The babies go in for their four month check up next week – so I still have 8 months to get the label on and get them mailed. Don’t judge me. HA HA
For Maddyn - This was the first quilt I ever cut out with the AccuQuilt GO system. See the points - darn near perfect. I had it cut out in under 10 minutes!!!

Pictures of my leaders being placed on the frame system. Hopefully, the pictures will help aid with the descriptions. But please disregard the wrinkles. I was just laying this out for demonstration purposes after pulling it out of a bag. Also, I am not sure if you can tell, but this is the Scooby Doo quilt – which still is not finished. It was just too easy to unzip the leaders and put a new quilt on the frame! BTW, I tried Velcro for the leaders and it is soooo much better than the zippers. Also, less expensive! Try it – you’ll love it!
