Playing with the fit of the low loft quilt batting.
Craig, your making great progress on your layout, looking forward to seeing more.
Keep us posted, you picked a great area, that I worked on in the 70s
From 1976-1980, covering my high school years, I lived close to the DD highway grade crossing in Seligman, and my maternal grandparents lived in the next house south (the prominent 2-story w/cedar siding) until my parents bought it from them in the late 1980's. . Even before that I loved to watch the trains pass and would bike to where I could see them, when I lived at the north end of town.
Good chance I saw you pass Bill.
The 2-story in the background is my parents home. Btw, as I understand it, no one was seriously injured in that wreck, as bad as it looks. I was told the train was almost clear, when the driver collided with it.
Glued down first quilt batting sheet for "The Cut". Will trim the excess around the edges after glues sets up, in this case Mod Podge matte finish, though I've been told Elmer's white will work too. The shadows make it look more loosely bunched than it is.
Later, earth toned paint will be worked in to provide a color base and act as an adhesive for ground foam. I hope to use Jim James' felt sections as a ground cover base on some of the smoother sections.
