Today I went to a quilt show in Robertsdale, AL. It is held each year at the UMC and it is wonderful. It is a combination new and old quilts. I am always impressed with the workmanship I see. Of course this picture is not of a quilt, it is what I bought at the quilt show. I have wanted to make a black, white and yellow quilt and I couldn’t pass up the teal bundle.
And this week I got my Red Snappers. I can’t tell you how excited I, and my arthritic hands were to get them.
Here is the backing laid out and I am putting the snap part on. A plastic “dowel” has been inserted inside the leader and I am now snapping the “snap part” on. They are really easy to put on and if it hadn’t been for my forgetting to put the backing behind the tension pole, it would have been a snap, pun intended.
Tomorrow I will be starting to quilt this flannel quilt. I really need it since it is going to be 28F tonight, way too cold for AL.
And when I get tired I will be trying to come up with something really cool to use my new 2 1/2” strips. Isn’t quilting fun?
