Thanks for your responses. If you don't mind, please post pictures of your Argosy interior, upholstery fabric, and flannel boards. I need some help in getting on with these projects! I'll look up "cheryl Anne's" and see if I can find flannel boards. Again, thanks. ~G

You've done a beautiful job with the restoration, and the quilt theme inside is inspired! Love to see those pictures!

I had never seen one b4, either and that's what fascinated me about it. I couldn't figure out how it was pieced, so I had to buy it to find out. All the squares are the same, but rotated with a square of a piece of fabric from the row above, next to, or beneath it. Kinda hard to explain, but fun to do.

So you found with the 25 fb that the sofa by the dinette was not big enough?

I have a Singer featherweight that I plan on taking with me camping once we get to the point where we can take long enough trips for that. Right now it's a weekend or week at a time.

Here are some pics of our Minuet when we first got it and I'll also a pic of the new drapery and upholstery material in the next reply. I don't think I have any pics since I hung the new draperies. They are the striped sheer. I wouldn't normally have purchased a sheer, but LOVE the way it goes with the upholstery fabric and I considered it a packaged deal. I lined the draperies and I've gotten a lot of compliments on them. Will post a pic of the upholstery when the project is complete.

Here's a link to my design wall - index.

What I'm working on today

Okay, one more pic and I'll get off of here and get busy. My mom kept my grandpa's pj's (I know - a weird thing to keep, but she kept everything) and so I am making a quilt out of them. Kinda fun 'cause I do remember him wearing them. I tried to get it done before my mom passed away, but didn't make it. Hope to finish it today..

Awesome fabric - both choices. What a difference that will make to the look of the interior!

Diego, those fabrics are gorgeous! I'm having an awful time settling on a fabric for recovering all the orange and striped old stuff and for drapes (shredded and rotten), not to mention that I cannot even decide whether or not to discard the dinette in the front or not. I think I'd like a fairly sedate chenille for sitting portions and trim, and do some quilting to make cushion covers for the backs. Just thinking. I'd like another gaucho in place of it for greater ease of making beds morning and evening. We tend to spend our meal times and cooking outdoors if weather is at all decent. I think if we had two folding tables, we'd be ok or eating indoors when it's necessary--or for end table, craft tables, and so on. I'd miss the dinette, but we'd soon grow to hate all the pieces and work of set up and take down twice a day. I love the sentiment of the pj quilt of your Grandpa's. I'm so sorry that your mom didn't get to see the finished quilt--or, maybe she has I finished a quilt for my mom just before she was hospitalized and came to live with us for her final year under hospice care. She loved that I'd made one for her. You'll love this momento of your grandfather too. Thanks for your help (above posts). ~G

Diego, thank you for the link to Cheryl Anne's design wall. I've studied it carefully, but I think I want something hung up on my wall opposite my sewing table--and larger than her largest. I'd have room to hang either a queen or king flannel quilt covering insulation board (or other light but rigid material). Once I had the lead to CA's portable wall, I then found many other suggestions, including some neat "make your own" so I think that's the route I'll take. Now I'm wondering how to grid mark the flannel covering and thinking that may not be such a successful task to undertake. We'll see Thanks again. ~G

Thanks, G. I think chenille would be a great choice - comfortable, yet durable. Quilted backs would be a nice touch, too. The dinette decision is a tough one. We, too, spend all our time outside, weather permitting. We'll just have to try it and see if we like sleeping on the gaucho better than the dinette area or not. Good luck with your decision.

I wish I had room in my sewing studio to mount a permanent one on my wall, but I don't. I wonder if you could stitch lines on your flannel before mounting it to the insulation board and use those for the grid lines. It might take awhile to do, but once it's done, the lines wouldn't fade or come off.
