  • Chippy having lunch - My quilt piece

    Quilting team:

    I finally finished and sent my quilt piece today. It is now in the hands of the Canadian and US postal services. When I committed to doing a quilt piece I targeted early June for completion. I was right on target.

    This is an excerpt from a much larger intarsia project that I did earlier this year. I enjoyed the challenge of scalling it to meet the 5x5 specifications and cutting the 36 "minature" pieces. Yes. I still have all 10 fingers!

    I hope this will fit in with all of the other beautiful work many of you have already submitted. It was nice that we could all "do our own thing".

    I have posted a picture as an attachment. Also in the shipping box to Bob Duncan I included a brief write-up that he can paste to the backer board once it is in the quilt.

    Bob Duncan - please send me a communique once you have received it.

    That's so cute . Well done, it'll look great on the quilt .

        Great job on CHIPPY! Really impressive piece.

          Theres room for you to get a place to sleep there yet! Or, Bob D has opened up his living room floor for anyone that cant find a place to stay. That is, if you dont mind his two huge slobbering dogs cuddling you, or the noise of him up until 3 AM playing that playstation!!!! Dale

                  Very nice work Bob,
                  I wish I had the patience for all that sanding/shaping.

                    Very nice work Bob,

                    That piece will surely add value to the quilt.

                    Congrats on keeping all ten fingers

                            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...

                            Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                            Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
