  • Quilts::::

    Hi, all. I just decided that my wife gives away all of her quilts that she makes, & I think she should get paid for one some time. What do you people think. If you would be interested just send me an email & I'll get back to you. She really loves making them, so, it probably doesn't matter to her. I just wanted to show you one that she just finished & will give away to a friend. I think they are fantastic. They are all done by hand, no machine. Thanks for listening. This is one queen sized quilt.

    My wife loves making quilts too. Now she makes baby quilts for Newborns in need. So she can make all the quilts she wants and they go to a good cause.

      Nice looking quilt. Our daughter makes the quilts and keeps us in good supply of them as well

        Wow those are beautiful. Look around and do a little searching on line and see what hand made quilts go for. I've seen them go for over $1000 around here.
        May the wind at you back .....

          Perk, those quilts are amazing!!! Especially considering she is doing them ALL by hand with no machine...that is almost a lost art in itself. If you ever convince her to sell some of them, I think she will suprised at how much one would be willing to pay for them. Perhaps if you address it in the manner that if she actually SOLD some of them imagine how much more fabric she could buy ;-)!

          Mike, that is a wonderful program your wife helps out with...a very good suggestion. Over 24 years ago my sister gave birth to a premature baby (5-1/2 months) and one of the things she held on to for years and years was a hand-made knitted cap given to her son...a very special gift indeed!

            Hey, Oily that's more than I thought. She sure likes making them & does a great job of it too. Not bragging, but, we aren't the only ones that are talented, HA

            Kim, thank you. She made two small baby quilts for her twin Great Grand daughters too. I have to make copies of all of the quilts for an album that she keeps.

                Quarter inch BB with Red Gum (Australian Eucalyptus) veneer. My first attempt at veneering and there are a couple spots where there was not quit enough glue so small pieces of the veneer came off....

                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                The outside
                of the extension is almost finished apart...

                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
