You been outside lately? :cool:
Thanks! Perhaps I can show the quilt to you in person at one of the group hangs near here in the future. G-Nut
I marked the fabric using a silver Sharpie pen and then used a wooden straight edge to hold it in place. G-Nut
Thanks for making it possible brother!
Here is a pic of my attachment. I ordered it from http://www.cutexsewingsupplies.com/. Be advised, I have a Juki 8700 machine and you may need to go to your sewing machine's web site to get...
Thanks Snugs, glad you liked it.
Nice score on the materials! My only advice would be to take your time. Also, consider buying the pre-cut noseeum baffles once you decide on how high you want the baffles to be. Baffle height +...
LOL...she can get the materials for Valentines Day and call it good. Just don't forget her flowers! Standing by to help with the project if needed. G-Nut
Hey folks, Here is a step-by-step instructional video showing how I made my Multicam(R) Top Quilt. Hope it helps others!
Weight= 24 oz
Length= 81 inches.
Width= 50" at the...
Should have the video done by tomorrow night.
Nice job on he quilt! This was one of the posts that I saw recently that helped me decide to try the Karo baffle method. It works great! I am glad I used this method instead of the standard...
Yeah right! Words from my mentor...
Lol, every once in a while I'll do things like go to the Higher Colder Hang at Roan High Knob and this will come in handy for that. I have relatives in Washington State and my main office for work...
Yikes...Good catch. Yes this is a top quilt of course! Tried to change the subject but can't get the post to accept the change. Perhaps a mod will see his and help with the correction. G-Nut
11' ridge line on this puppy?
Brother Jaxx knows if I can do it then it can be done by all! Bring your patience brother!
It is a puffy sucker for sure. I'll have to steer clear of Jaxx's bean bark stew the next time we're out just to stay safe!
Thanks gnomad. Definitely not as difficult as it looks! G-Nut
Dutch, yes I did. Thanks for the compliment. Thanks for supplying the Argon 67! Here's a pic of the baffle layout. G-Nut
Just finished my first DIY Top Quilt Project. 1.5 Multicam Epsilon on the outside, Argon 67 on the inside, and filled with 16 oz of 950 FP treated down. Baffles are 3" and I'm thinking it will get...
I switched out from a clutch motor to a servo motor as soon as I got my machine (thanks Hangnout!) because of the control touch issues. I can sew as slow as I want now...
And...when you are threading the machine, make sure the presser foot is "up." This lets the thread slip between the disks that regulate the top tension. When you lower the foot to start sewing, the...
Awesome chart! Thank you. G-Nut
Great find! Awesome machine!
Jeg kan ikke tale Danske:shades:
Wow...something flies off the shelf and it is at risk for being discontinued? The prices are a little high in my opinion but I realize there may be forces out there that drive it up. It will sell. ...
Scored this scratch and dent and got a great price! Banging out my first top quilt with it as we speak. G-Nut
Winter Yeti sold to MikeVA76.
3-Season sold to whytrabbit.
Momma says I must thin the herd to pay for my new sewing machine. Like the title says, I have two Underquilts for sale. Both are in pristine condition and come with the original stuff sacks. The...
As far as hole depth goes, make sure it goes at least below the frost-line or it will probably pop up out of the ground.
Nice project. Thanks for posting! G-Nut
Question Retracted. Thanks G-Nut
Thanks for sharing. About to start my first top quilt project and this will be very helpful. Thanks!
Sewing is not hard to do. Sometimes the machines can get a little temperamental...especially when going from very thin materials one minute to multiple layers plus grossgain ribbon the next. As...
Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted this but it has been brought to my attention that I made a mistake on my diagram. It says 12' from end to end and should say 13 if you want to end up with...
I'll take one hank of the green please.
Lots of great advice in this thread. I am 6' tall and have used both full and partial length quilts. I now use Warbonnet Yeti underquilts exclusively. When it gets cold out (been in the low...
No sir...Huntsville, AL is where I hang my hat. G-Nut
Very nice indeed!
Nice trip. I grew up with Scottys...My dog Fergus could beat any dog in the neighborhood! Thanks for sharing. G-Nut
Great video! I need to learn how to be more patient when editing my videos. Perhaps I can squeeze some nice views out of them like those in yours :)!
Nice song too. Loved the lyrics. Any...
Question redacted after experiencing a "Senior Moment."
Roger. Thanks for the input. I have the ability to increase the volume while editing. I suppose the volume on my headphones could have been a little high. Went back and tried to watch the video...
Yes Sir, near Oneida, TN.
Sorry about the volume capture...still trying to figure out the best way to work the GoPro...may go with an external mic in the future.
None of us camped in a rock house. We were sitting in one...
Hey Potneck, we went to the back of the camping area near the farthest restroom facility. I believe it was campsite #39? To tell you the truth, you will not have a problem finding a good site.
Sure is...couldn't resist adding the sailing footage. You need to join us next time!
Got out recently and spent the weekend hiking the Big South Fork. Hangnout, Roche, Traffic, Emcee, D.K., Spooner, and Ftroop tagged along and agreed to star in the show. If you haven't been to Big...
