I bought a new hoop. It's tiny and it's oblong. It's been a big help with finishing up the mini quilt.
I also found these little finger things at Joann's. They work great when the needle gets stuck.
Also in the quilting section I found a Q Snap type quilting frame on clearance. I love my big wood hoops but I couldn't pass this up for the price.
I am thinking that I'll give it a go with this. It was one of the joint quilting projects Daddio and I worked on a few years ago. He made the Dresden plates and I appliqued them down and sashed it. After working on the mini quilts I've been itching for another hand quilting adventure. This ought to do it.
