  • 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

            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.

                                For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

                                I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

                                by Ennobee
                                My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                                Hi Jim.
                                glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                                Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason
