It’s downright mean to not post those here, I clicked through thinking “I’m sure I’ve seen something like this before” and I was very much incorrect.

You should post more of your work for sure. Very interesting direction you’ve gone.

Your maps are gorgeous!

@MyDogsThinkImCrazy engraves on fiber all the time. @jules did some cutting on one of the pre-production units

This search may be quite interesting for you to dig through :slight_smile:

Wow! That must take an incredible amount of time and patience. And such great detail. Don’t think my ADHD would let me make anything like oh look! A squirrel!

That’s fabulous! I’m not using the GF for my fiber, but instead made a quilting template to help folks like me visualize their block designs. Comes with 54 pieces (and I’m sure I’ll be adding a few more) to make an 8" block. And when you’re done with it, give it to the kids to use as a puzzle!

[Checks out the website…] Maps! I love maps! Can never look at them enough. And now they come in quilt, OMG, I’m in heaven.

These are gorgeous. With the shapes and background colors, some of them look just like a hand-drawn batik. From the photos, I would not have known they were laser cut, if I hadn’t seen the video.
