  • My quilt squares

    OK, I typed this all once, then lost it, so here it goes again.
    Special thanks to the designers of the patterns I chose!!

    The wolf, is designed by Sheila Bergner-Landry. It is shrunk to 45% original size, scrolled out of 1/8th thick red oak, and glued to 1/8th inch stained baltic birch ply. It was cut using a FD-TC#3 blade, and has 46 blade entry holes.
    The lion is designed by Kevin D. aka: Jediscroller . Thank you Kevin. It was designed to be used as an 11 by 14 inch pattern, so major shrinking was required to fit this into a 5 inch square. It is cut out of 1/8th inch maple, glued to 1/8th inch stained baltic birch plywood. It was cut using a FD-TC#1 blade because of its intricacy, and has ...ready???????? 135 blade entry holes!
    The tiger.... This tiger was designed be Dave Sutton aka dustycanuck . Kevin gave me a great tiger to use, however after shrinking it to fit the square,it didnt make a nice matching pattern to compliment the detail in the lion, so I opted for this tiger from Dave.This was designed to be cut as an 8 1/2 by 11, so major shrinking again to fit 5 by 5 inches.It is cut from 1/8th maple, and glued to 1/8th inch stained baltic birch ply. Again, I chose the FD-TC#1 blade . Now, here is a totally circumstantial phenomenon. Get this... It has exactly 135 blade entry holes , the same as the lion square!
    I hope Bob has his pro photographers get some nice pictures to share with those that can not see the project firsthand. They are in the mail, and should arrive by weeks end Bob. Now, i will try attaching photos again, and hope I dont have to type this a third time!!! Dale

            You and Kevin make a great team.

            That is definitely beautiful artwork.

            This project is turning out to be awesome thanks to that quality of work.

                Me and Kevin dont have something going.... KEVIN has something going. A scrolled project can only be as good as the pattern is designed, and his patterns are awesome! I just cut... anyone can do that!!!
                Teresa.. when do I sleep? I usually get about 4 hours a night, my body is sort of used to that now.
                Thanks for all the great comments. I do think these ducks all turned out nice. Evie how are your ducks coming? Will they be done in time for the quilt hun? Dale

                psst evie.... it is spelled humor hunny

                  Beautie's Dale. Complicated, heavily aerated beauties!!! Very well done, sir!

                  you have much more patience than I........and obviously a steadier hand.....perhaps I should give up the grog????? Nah..... Great job.

                    Great job Dale! The Tiger really goes well with the Lion I really like the pair.
                    I do have to disagree with you though on one point though, it's the cutter who brings the pattern to life. Otherwise it's just a lifeless 2 dimensional piece of paper (but thanks for the VERY kind words).

                      My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's this last summer. We had to move him into a nursing home because he couldn't take care of himself anymore. He used to run a successful wood shop. He made shooting benches, picnic tables, porch swings, among other things. My cousin bought his property so we...

                      Hi Jim - a long while back I did a series of ebonizing tests using the steel wool and vinegar method on a variety of woods. On white oak the color turns out to be a light grey. On red oak its a much darker grey black. To get the best out of ebonizing i.e. the blackest coloration the wood needs t o be...

                      Having just viewed my official invitation to receive my first Covid19 jab this coming week I had a little chuckle to myself over the name and logo the government has adopted for the folks who will administer the vaccinations.

                      Might be. I am going to be making a sign using oak plywood and I think I may want the background a tone other than the oak. May explore other veneers as well.
