Thanks to the generosity of Sun Graphics, Plymouth WI, and the talent of Kim, one of their designers, the Camo Quilt Project will soon have a beautiful full color brochure. If you were at the CQP facility on Thurs night (09/10/09) you had a sneak preview. Just a few minor changes were needed and they should be ready for printing soon. The new brochure is way beyond what we ever imagined! THANK YOU SUN GRAPHICS! Stop by their website at: www.sungraphicsprinting.com and don't forget to let them know you appreciate their donation of designing and printing a brochure for the Camo Quilt Project.

Cutting 40 layers of ACU fabric is easy with the use of the electric rotary cutting saw! The fabric comes on rolls from 20 to 100 yds each. The width is about 66 inches. The fabric is layered onto our cutting table and the first cut is made at 45". After the initial cut to width, the fabric is then cut to 72" lengths. The 21" cut-off is set aside to be cut into bindings, ties, cool-ties and it is also used to piece together additional 45 x 72 inch quilt pieces. We have been using the saw for almost a year now and we are still on the first blade. Pretty impressive since it has cut pieces for more than 1200 quilts!
