Gina Halladay (Threaded Pear) moved here to Arizona this last year from California.
It seems like she knows so many of you in the quilting world, so you may be very familiar with her.
She used to own Cranberry Quiltworks in So. Cal and ran a Gammill Longarm dealership.
We both were invited to join in with a small quilt group here in Mesa, and I have been getting to know her a little better.
So much energy and so many talents!
Pattern designer, national quilt teacher, entrepreneur extraordinaire!
Gina is creating new companies right and left.
One day I could see she could use a little help binding a quilt as she was rushing to get ready for a quilt show.
Fantastic-O is a fat quarter friendly quilt that whips up quickly.
Pattern can be found on Threaded Pear's web site.
Love the machine quilting
And rounded corners
And you can see by this picture that Gina is a ton of fun.
