  • My quilt piece

    At last I'm getting this photos business sorted out!!! I think!

    Anyway here's my piece. I finished it a while ago but wainted for the guy who gave me permission to do it,view it first. Because it is a company logo I made sure I had the right permission and then he sent me some line drawings for it. One of the conditions for using it was to acknowledge who provided the design seeing it is a regisistered logo. So I decided to put it where it could be seen so as I covered myself completely - hope it doen't distract from the work too much. (I just didn't want anyone else seeing it and copying it without the same permission.)

    It is my very first piece of Intarsia and I did have fun doing it. the arms ad face is NZ rimu, the beak??? and the shirt and cap is silky oak. It is on a piece of Gaboon ply. When I committed to a square all I could think of was to do this piece (nothing else seemed appropriate to me.) Anyway hope you all think it's OK.

    Let me be the first to say Good job mate!

    I've yet to try doing any intarsia, but I'd say you did great, better yet, you said it yourself you had fun doing it!

                What a witty design, and so nicely made, Teresa.

                      That is fine work, with a local flavor.

                      I like it, this quilt will definitely reflect it's multi-culturality.

                      Nicely done, and good subject,
                      DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                                Was it a good idea.....?...

                                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
