  • Geometric Quilt

    Hello again.....

    In recent weeks, some contributors to this forum have successfully cut some really great jigsaw puzzles. Here's an example of my style of cutting at the extreme. It's from a calendar of quilts.

    There are perhaps only eight or so basic shapes in this puzzle, but the colors make it fun to cut and probably a real dilemma to put together (my wife hasn't done it yet). It measures just under a square foot, has just over 300 pieces, made from 5-ply poplar and took a little over five hours to cut. The result is quite tight. It can be picked up by any edge piece and waved in the air.

    Pictured below are the front and back. Questions? Happy to help anytime.

    Have phun.........Carter

        That definitely looks as if it could be challenging to put together - nice work, Carter..

                My wife finished putting it together a few days ago. It probably took her six or seven hours, spread over seven or eight days.

                As usual, when she was finished I gave it to a puzzle-hungry couple....who called me late that evening to say they had assembled it in one evening....oh, well.....

                The picture is simply from a quilt calendar for 2007. Similar calendars are sold every year. I assume this answers your question about a "copy" of the puzzle.....

                  yes you have answered me question .....actually in part......is there a pattern for the cutting lines you have used for the puzzle.....Probably a silly question

                    Nope....no pattern....I've never used one for any of my puzzles. I'm what's known as a color line cutter. I use the colors lines of images within pictures as the bases for puzzle pieces.

                    If you haven't seen my puzzles before, here's a link to one of my Picture Trail albums which will show the variety of picture I work with.

                      Now that you mention it I can see what you are doing. I can't imagine ever getting that good! However, I will work at it. I can only get dialup internet here so I am downloading your other puzzzle pics in the background while I work my way through here.

                        Hey, Bashkir.......

                        I'm happy to help you to try freehand puzzles. Feel free to drop me an email directly at any time: [email protected].

                        I suggest, for a start, you find some greeting cards with pictures you like. They're a nice size to get started on.

                        On another forum, I posted some step-by-step instructions. Here they are:

                          SSWWC and the older CWWC magazines were and are still a great source of for my Christmas ornaments. I can't count the times we have gone through the issues an said "how did we miss this one". I agree I was disappointed with the lack of Christmas and holiday patterns in last years Winter edition....

                          Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                          And on each cloud touching the body ?
                          I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                          Thanks

                          I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                          Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                          What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...
