  • think i have one for the charity ??

    First pic
    My contribution to the quilt if you think its ok.
    ive played around and came up with this. Mass state outline, and Mass state Bird, Black Caped Chickadee. Did all with #0/2 blade, 1/4 aspen wood. State stained with cherry, bird with maple. The frame is oak.
    Where the quarter is going to make label, tried cutting out letters but too small and a Sill need to touch up a couple things.

    Funny its the one i did just for kicks with the wood burning iron, but it think it cam out kinda cute.

    Second pic
    My first intarsia project, the bird, still working on it, but thought id show you anyway. Messed up a little on the feet. Wood is oak, maple, cherry and a few stains.

      HI Pete. I love the state outline. looks trikie. and the burdie is cool. but my friend. I just love the intasha. birdie. that would look so cool on your state.
      it would give so much dimention too. can you add them both on one tile??
      no matter what you do it will look great. nice idea too. I don't remmber what kind of bird that is. I know short memmery. sorry.

              Hey Pete,

              I knew you'd come up with something

              The intarsia bird is relly nice and will look great on the cutout of the state.

              Good job,

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets.
