  • my quilt square

    hi all, well here it is my quilt square. I decided to do this little tiger cub because since High School football I have had the nickname "tiger" because I played a position our coaches called tiger safety, which in our defense was a free safety that was used in blitzing the quarterback very often. So here it is a little something that is more about me then the area I am from. HOpe it fits in well with the quilt. IT is made from 1/4" red oak plywood with a poly finish and the backer is 1/4" luane plywood stained with golden oak.

    I think that is really cute and will look great. Just because of you, this week I got some sheets of red oak plywood and some stain

        "Cute" is definitely the word . I could pick other words too, such as "very good".

        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

                Great quilt block, Wayne! I prefer "ruggedly handsome" to "cute", `specially if its a boy tiger!

                      Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

                      I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
