It is now like a game.  So close to getting them all. Is it possible?????

OK  - so the plasma cutter.  You have seen all those beautiful metal signs. Like this one............

This sign is 4 feet high by 8 feet wide and made out of a sheet of metal

Look at the detail you can get


So how does this relate to quilting????   Check out this web site - I want these!!!!!!!!!!!

Metal quilt blocks

They are so beautiful and would be amazing on the wall in the house, the back fence.   I really feel that I need to get one.  However I was hoping to find a Canadian source. And I found one - close to my parents. Her mother (yes - the welder is a WOMAN) is a quilter.  Perfect.  Just have to figure out the size and price and we are good to go.

Now the cool thing about these cutters - you program the SOFTWARE and plug it in the cutter (which works like the quilting machine - moves along an XYZ axis) and in minutes - it has this design PERFECTLY cut and the edges are smooth.  It is amazing.

Susan - maybe Cam would let you put one of those on that big shed??????

That's all the time I have today. I am now in Moose Jaw - the home of my FAVOURITE quilt shop and I'm going to help out at their Christmas in July event.   Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!
