Alpha Project

updated. new image of the quilt. 10 patches sewn together. i have a plan for #11. need a 12th in order to square things out and i'll start working on getting it exhibited in museums.

also removed some people from the quilt comittee, all inactive members.

i left ader in there as he's still a BODish sort.

the real truth is that if you want to talk to someone about the quilt, talk to me.

I may be able to provide that 12th if I can get off my butt and do some work.

In Lincoln, NE we also have a quilt museum I could talk to when it gets finished if you would like.

i am looking at a few museums right now, always open to ideas.

i do not see this being "finished" any time soon. i see it being "displayable" at a near-future time.

only recently did i finish the solid e4 patch. before that micals patch was making it a 3x3, but i've had plans to move it to the current location for a couple months.

you guys need more enthusiasm.

not only is it still going on, but if i receive 2 more patches it will be 3 patches x 4 patches and ready to display to the entire world!

i've been looking at making one of the two, to continue off of the plain e4 patch i put in as a centerpiece.. i don't know, then it needs to have 5 more patches, not just 2.

so, if i receive 4 patches, i guess i'll make the other one. Smile

Enthusiasm I have...it's just that I have too many other huge projects I'm working on. Smile Still, after this sculpture is done (if it gets done this time), I'll see if I can't make a patch for ya. If I can think of something to do, that is. Razz

oh dear lord!

i'm palpitating.

my brain is trying to figure out where to place it. i'll probably do something on the opposite side of the quilt from chainmailbaskets 2x2 to give some visual balance.i mean, i'll put it wherever, but since it's been my task to put it together, i've been forming my own little vision for the project.

i guess that may not be appropriate.

if someone who is submitting a patch wants specific placement, let me know. i'll see what i can do for you, as long as it doesn't require a bunch of reworking. i don't mind a little, but i will not rearrange the entire quilt. anyone is welcome to come out if it needs to be done that badly. Wink

Chao - I trust in your ability to arrange patches in an appropriate manner. So feel free to place mine as you wish, once it arrives - I estimate a postage run time of two weeks.

BTW: Despite being made completely from BA, it's comparably heavy - just shy of 8 oz. And as the ring is woven 'atop' the sheet, and not mounted along its periphery, it 'likes' to have a bit weight at the bottom to hang straight. So this might influence the optimal placement of the patch. If you'd prefer a peripheral mount (better for free hanging quilt), tell me, then I'll change that.

so far, i have been using a flat table display, not hanging. i suspect this will be the case into the future.
