  • 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

            Wow!

            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.

            Regards,

                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).

                      At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                      The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                      Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
