  • 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.

        Beautiful work, I Agree with Evie this is going to be a really nice quilt....now I got to get going on mine but the making hte pattern is still hanging me up. Won't be as nice as most but to be able to contribute is an honor in itself.

          Bill,
          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!!!!!!

                      Thanks

                      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 .

                          None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                          The bags seem easier on the surface.
                          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                          As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                          I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
