  • Quilt assembly

    Finally getting around to it...hopefully...

    I decided to get 1/4" square dowels to put between the squares. I wanted something that would frame the squares, but would look good with the varying thicknesses. I've got a honey-amber analine dye to review for the magazine, so I thought that would be a good, neutral color to use.

    Sound like a plan to you all?

    Hey Bob,

    I did my share of the project, now it's your turn.

    Since I don't have the pieces in front of me I don't know what would look good, so I will trust your jugement on this.

    Whatever you feel will make it look good... Go for it.

    Your friend,
    Marcel

      That is a great idea Bob.
      Sounds like you have your work cut out for yourself!

      Good luck

          Gotta cut out 600 more fox blanks today...and write three articles, I already photographed three projects today...then design and build a display system for the projects made from John Nelson patterns we're selling...

          So my personal deadline for the quilt is Friday...but then they are getting the cedar log for the totem pole today, and I need to debark that too......and this weekend, I need to cut out the final project that we need for the nelson patterns....

            Six - HUNDRED???
            I certainly hope you are stack cutting them. Even so,,, wow!
            Perhaps you could send them out as Christmas ornaments - just cut about 12 more.
            Good cutting, kid. Now, get back to work!! (sounds of chains attaching you to your tools)

              Bob,

              Is that another way of saying that Fox-Chapel is hiring?



              (Good luck to you)

                    Bob they keep you out of trouble I see. I like reading your feed back on behind the scene work you and your team does. It makes me applicate more the magazine and wanting more of it knowing all the works that goes into it.

                                Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                                And on each cloud touching the body ?
                                I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                                Thanks

                                I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                                Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                                What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                                Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

                                I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
