  • QUILT squares

    A special Thank you to JEDISCROLLER for the use of one of his awesome patterns. I bet he never intended it to be shrunk to the size I did.Im going to try adding a photo here so you dont have to look in the gallery, but if it dont work, you can see them there!
    The lion was designed by JEDISCROLLER to be cut as 11 by 14. I shrunk it to fit a 5 by 5.It has 135 internal cuts !!! I used a FD TC #1 blade.Its cut on 1/8th thick maple with a stained 1/8th bb ply backer. The other lion is the waste piece i used on the bottom, of 1/4 bb ply, glued to spray painted bb ply backer .It looks to good to waste. Thanks again JEDISCROLLER for that pattern!I think I did it justice.
    The wolf was designed by Sheila Bergner Landry. It was shrunk about to 45% original size to fit the 5 by 5 square. It has 46 internal cuts. One is of 1/8th inch red oak,one is 1/8th maple. Both are glued atop 1/8th bb ply, stained with minwax red mahogany stain, and all the squares are danish oiled with a few coats of deft over that. I used a Flying Dutchman #3 Two-way cut blade on this piece.
    I will send the maple/bbply lion, and still unsure which wolf to send, Im leaning towards the red oak/bbply one so far.
    Ok, I will try adding the photo, and post it for opinions, comments, and critiques. Thanks again Kevin for an awesome pattern!

          awesome

          This is wonderful. It looks like a REAL challenge.

          That quilt is going to be a work of art.

            Very nice work Dale,

            That quilt will be amazing!

            I hope BobD is able to get the bidding to reflect the quality of the work put in it: it should make the Shriners very happy

            This is turning out to be a sweet project...

                  Yes, I finally decided to try scrolling. Did I mention this was my first project? LOL!

                  Thanks everyone for the pats on the back. I had fun cutting them, and maybe knowing it was for a good cause made it that much funner. Like Marcal said, I also hope there is somebody thats willing to pay the price this thing will be worth, knowing its for a good cause. I hope theres people there with more money then me. Dont get me wrong, I would love to proudly display the quilt in my home, but if that happens, I KNOW it didnt bring the money it deserves, because Im broke!!!
                  I am hoping to do one more square, now not sure what to do, but a tiger like the lion might be fun to do. Oh, and unlike when I scrolled the lion, Ill do the next one WITHOUT wearing a blindfold!!!! Thanks again for the great comments. Dale

                          Dale,
                          It figures, the week I'm gone you post this. Awesome! I don't know that I'd want to try and cut it that small. Thanks so much for feeling my pattern was both worthy of your time and worthy of the quilt project.

                            WAYYYY worthy my friend!!! It looks awesome. My next test of patience, is a shrunk down tiger to match...by guessing, its roughly the same amount of holes....time will tell. Thank YOU for that lion pattern, it should be in the magazine! dale
