  • Cut From the Same Cloth (Sort of)

    Hi Folks
    I found this cloth in a quilting store on Friday and liked the design so I tried to put it across as a trivet. Overall, (and for the first attempt) I am not displeased. However, something doesn't 'feel' right. After I had the photos sitting side by side I figured out that I need to cut the little 'roundies' in the center part so they are simply more visible. I think that will give it some more definition in the middle. Right now, I think they look like something from the planet that never invented art. But, is that all or can any of you discerning scrollers see anything else that I am missing on this piece / pattern?

    I would appreciate your comment.

    Nice job John. If I were cutting this, I would seriously think of cutting a diamond in the middle rather than a circle. Just my opinion.

      I like it too. Maybe you could leave the center as is so you could put an initial in it. This could make a great house-warming gift.

        I think for the most part you caught the essence of the fabric's design. The middle is missing something though.

          Looks like a great adaption of a pattern from one media to another. The center could use something and I like all the ideas supplied. The diamond is good and also an initial is a great one.
          Great work on a new pattern and cutting.

            In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

            Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

            The outside
            of the extension is almost finished apart...

            Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
