Now all we need to do is find someone locally to make it so we can stitch it into a store bought comforter. I hope it doesn't cost an arm and two legs. :D Danny

doug hodder wrote:Danny...that type of quilt is a "landscape" quilt...Hoffman fabrics have a ton of materials out there to do what you want, mostly in batiks. Typically, you fuse the fabric to the substrate using a material called "seam a seam"...cut it out and then fuse it to your background, with a hot iron. It can be sewn down along the edges...I'm working on a really sick and twisted one (land scape).....I only show it to certain customers in the store...most won't appreciate it, but I know that there are those that have my twisted sense of humor ......Doug :twisted: :twisted:

Auntie M....I'll put up a pic on this thread on Mon....It's some sick stuff....

Doug, besides not knowing anything about sewing with the exception of fixing a hole in a sox or jeans I have color blind issues that may prevent me from making a quilt on my own. My first cabinet shop job employer almost fired me for mixing antique brass & bronze screws on hinges until he ask me sarcastically if I was color blind. I'm still going to see if someone can make this for me. :) Danny

Danny since nobody here really has a clue as to what a tear drop is .. it wouldnt really matter on the quilt either...l :lol: :lol: :lol:

I again have a clue even though never experienced the nature of it ... ;)
Hmm got to ask the wife nicely if she would start a quilt... :roll: :roll:

Hey Danny,

Storyquilt's(place of the website) store is about 10 miles from me. Maybe some folks in the store can help you out. Enen though the website says closed I still get flyers, the store I believe is just under new ownership.

Rick, Thanks for the link. I did a search and it seems there are quite a few quilting shops in my general area. It's funny when you have no interest in something you never see it, but today we saw a quilting shop on the way home. It seems quilting is a big deal at the Puyallup Fair.:) Danny

Here's a quilt my mother-in-law made for my daughter.

Here's a ruler to give an idea how many individual squares were used to make this one.

ImageGosh I am so glad this isn't a contest. That is an amazing piece of work. I can see why she would be offered so much for it.

if this is a queen size and it looks it---at beginning 2" squares (finish 1 1/2" squares) you would need over 3600 pieces. I know you builders will appreciate the accuracy needed to get this to lay flat.

Totally awesome.
