Episode 4 – Flynn Is In!

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.

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

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!!!

KID QUOTE OF THE DAY:

Jadyn does her quilting!

RECIPE:

No recipe for this show, but check out the podcast on iTunes Cooking With the Moms:  Janice & Liz or visit their website at www.mealmakeovermoms.com

TOPIC:

Watch the video for the Flynn Multi-Frame System at www.flynnquilt.com

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!

Episode 3 – Ham, Turkey or Quilt Sandwich

Episode 3

In this episode, I discuss how to make a quilt sandwich.  Due to technical difficulties, some sections were recorded as many as three times.  Therefore, by the third time, I could not remember if I had already mentioned something or not.  I hope pertinent information was not left out!!

Kit purchased from The Fig Leaf

Kit purchased from The Fig Leaf. I have already washed the flannels and did not take pictures before washing. I will put the finished quilt/wallhanging up when/if I ever do anything with either of these. HA HA! The Fig Leaf does not have a website, but if you are in the area, Google them and you will find directions to the shop.

Not an F-5, but still a little too close to home.
