  • Quilt Question

    Ok, I have a pattern. One I designed. One that is now presenting me with a delima. The pattern could also be done by a table, radial arm, or miter saw as well. You see the lines are all straight. I could remove some of the lines but I have an idea which leads more to the 61/64 piece count.

        That's going to look good no matter you cut it .

        I'm wondering if incorporating some acrylic mirror might give it that extra magic sparkle.

          Thx. I appreciate the positive.

          I picked up a sampler hardwood box from a WoodCraft store and found the following, purpleheart, zebrawood, walnut, yellowheart(?). Looking at a quarter I am thinking of starting with the inside of the star radiating out Walnut, Zebra, Purpleheart. The inside square might be maple (quilted if I can find/afford it). With the rest of the pieces being poplar. The two lozenges on the outside would be Walnut as well. I was thinking of having the Zebra on the outside but I don't know how well it contrast. I guess I should just cut up 8 of each and play with layout. I also 'inherited. some teak, olive, and apple from my uncle-in-law when we resawed the lumber. It's all about 5/4 to 6/4 wide. Now I will need that ROS.

          Thanks for the support. I just felt like it might be a 'cheap way out' since the scroll saw isn't really a requirement for the pattern.

          Thx again.

              First of all I can't believe it's been a month since I was last in here. Guess my full time job just takes up too much time!! Sawdust, your quilt design is just fabulous. I am also making a "quilt" block but it isn't as nearly as demanding as yours. Something like that would take me forever & ever to do!! And secondly, I decided I would much rather quilt with material, sewing machine & thread than a scroll saw, wood & sand paper! LOL

                  Well I modified the pattern a bit to make it more dependent on the scrollsaw (see attachment). But after the first stack cut and cutting a single out. I might revert back to my original pattern. That and the fact I would probably need a spindle sander for the curves and justifying the $200 for the Rigid oscilating spindle/belt sander seems a bit much. Not that I am giving up on the 'want'. These shapes seem a lot bigger on my VDT than IRL.

                      That's a hard looking one. If you really want to do it, why not do them both? I really like the first one - sort of classic simplicity with infinite possibilities, or sumpthin' like that.
