  • Quilt Square is finished

    My quilt squares are done. If one looks familiar is should it is the top of the Gentleman's Box form SSW #20. The other is my political statement of sorts.

    I used red oak on the box top and BBP on the POW/MIA. I cut them with a Flying Dutchman Penguin Silver Reverse #3 baled.

    I will be sending them to Bond next week.

          I salute you, sir! Well done quilt squares

          Wayne - I'm confident yours will be outstanding as well. Your work shows quite a bit of attention to detail - and that is a great habit to have!!!!!!

            Superb job!

                      Thanks so much for your nice words. I fell very strongly about the POW/MIA and the brave men and women we left in Vietnam ....and that's all I going to say about that.

                      I will great to see the quilt finished. I hope to see a lot of you there at the open house.

                      Thanks again.

                        They look just great! The quilt is going to mean so much as there are so many memories wrapped up in it. I think we are all looking forward to seeing the whole quilt now that so many pieces have been shown.
                        Cheers. Teresa .

                          I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as it’s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

                          Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!

                          Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...
