  • My quilt piece

    At last I'm getting this photos business sorted out!!! I think!

    Anyway here's my piece. I finished it a while ago but wainted for the guy who gave me permission to do it,view it first. Because it is a company logo I made sure I had the right permission and then he sent me some line drawings for it. One of the conditions for using it was to acknowledge who provided the design seeing it is a regisistered logo. So I decided to put it where it could be seen so as I covered myself completely - hope it doen't distract from the work too much. (I just didn't want anyone else seeing it and copying it without the same permission.)

    It is my very first piece of Intarsia and I did have fun doing it. the arms ad face is NZ rimu, the beak??? and the shirt and cap is silky oak. It is on a piece of Gaboon ply. When I committed to a square all I could think of was to do this piece (nothing else seemed appropriate to me.) Anyway hope you all think it's OK.

    I've yet to try doing any intarsia, but I'd say you did great, better yet, you said it yourself you had fun doing it!

                That's the spitting image of the owner of our local hardware store!

                What a witty design, and so nicely made, Teresa.

                      Theresa,

                      That is fine work, with a local flavor.

                      I like it, this quilt will definitely reflect it's multi-culturality.

                      Nicely done, and good subject,

                                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                                I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                                First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
