    Since there has been a lot of wondering about how many men are on the board how about we show off our quilts and projects that we have done. I know there are some of us that have a list a mile long so I say just hit the top two or three that are our faves just to show them our perspective on this wonderful hobby! :-D :-D :-D

    I will post a few of my favorites to get things started........

    I really am dreading quilting that behemoth on my treadle!!! I know how I am going to do it but the logistics of the size of the quilt verses the area I am working with is mind boggling. I have to go to my neighbors house and use their game room just to pin the thing its so big!!:lol: :lol:

    My quilting table is 140"x 36" and it is not going to be big enough for the quilt to sit right for me to work on it so I am going to build an extension and make it where I can have about 100" (deep) worth of bench to lay it on. Then I can work it like you would do a pile of mashed potatoes, hollow out the middle and work that area and move to the next. And I am going to use my Japanese 15 to quilt it. :thumbup:

    Take pics of your progress. I'm interested in the extension you'll be making. :D

    I love the one for your son the most. I may have to use that idea for one of my SILs. He loves stripes.
    And you own a treadle? Oh I'm so envious. I used to have one but my step-daughter took it when she got married then gave it away a year later!!! I'm still not over it.

    Thanks for posting pics of your quilts. The jewel tones are fantastic! The scrappy ones are happy quilts. How long have you been interested in quilting, how did you learn and what is your secret on keeping your projects nice and square? You can't tell me that you do these on a treadle machine,right?

    I use treadle machines exclusively, and I own around 12 treadles and a few parts machines to boot ! :mrgreen: I do all of my FMQ with my Japanese 15 that I converted to treadle. To me it seems I have more control over the whole process with using a treadle, plus the quilts take on a personality and you can actually feel and see the love in them.

    As far as the extension its going to be a sheet or two of 3/4" plywood sanded smooth and finished with a urethane (so it will slide better). It will be able to be set and taken down easily and store nicely in the studio. I am still working the logistics of this one out in my head so it might be a while before its built. But I am shooting for a 140"x 132" work space for the quilt to lay on.

    And yeah where are the other guys at I want to see their work!!!

    Everyone else should post their pictures on their own post.
    It makes it easier to comment on each person's quilts.
