  • Cut From the Same Cloth (Sort of)

    Hi Folks
    I found this cloth in a quilting store on Friday and liked the design so I tried to put it across as a trivet. Overall, (and for the first attempt) I am not displeased. However, something doesn't 'feel' right. After I had the photos sitting side by side I figured out that I need to cut the little 'roundies' in the center part so they are simply more visible. I think that will give it some more definition in the middle. Right now, I think they look like something from the planet that never invented art. But, is that all or can any of you discerning scrollers see anything else that I am missing on this piece / pattern?

    I would appreciate your comment.

    Nice job John. If I were cutting this, I would seriously think of cutting a diamond in the middle rather than a circle. Just my opinion.

      I like it too. Maybe you could leave the center as is so you could put an initial in it. This could make a great house-warming gift.

        I think for the most part you caught the essence of the fabric's design. The middle is missing something though.

          Looks like a great adaption of a pattern from one media to another. The center could use something and I like all the ideas supplied. The diamond is good and also an initial is a great one.
          Great work on a new pattern and cutting.

            After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

            At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

            I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
            Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
