Lesson 5: Chip Carving Square #1
In this lesson you will apply what you learned in Lesson 4.
This first quilt square is made up entirely of three corner chips.

Here’s the pattern:

Right-click on the image and select “Save Image As” and save it to your hard drive.
I hope the pattern size will remain the same so you can transfer it directly to your square.
If you need to resize the image, this can be done with a photo editor or in Word after inserting the picture.

Practicing first on a practice board is a good idea. If you mess up when carving your square, you can flip it over and carve the back side. That way, only the good side will show. :-)

Enjoy this lesson!

Next lesson: Chip Carving Squares 2-3.

Beautiful and fairly simple pattern. The video showing how to carve the pattern is outstanding as well. Good job, Marty

Thanks, Cubie.
We’ll start easy and take it step-by-step. Or should I say, chip-by-chip!

thanks dude. Great vid. Do you have the specs on the new knife and will it have a stabbing companion?

You are very welcome, Dave. The My Chip Carving Knives will consist of three knives – Standard Cutting (shown in this video), Modified Knife (for curves, lettering, detail), and Stab Knife. Both cutting and modified have the registry mark for your thumb to fit in. All knives have a full length blade that runs the entire length of the knife. This is a HUGE improvement to knives currently available. Thin steel on cutting knives, all pre-sharpened, and guaranteed. A basswood storage box that can be custom carved will also be available. Sweet!

I have been experiencing problems with my internet connection, along with Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. Right now I only see one pattern here, instead of 4. I am on Google Chrome right now. I will go here through Explorer, and see what happens

Hey Roger,
I’ve only posted one pattern with this lesson, not four. Coming up I will be posting more patterns for everyone to try. Keep making chips!

I don’t know if this will help anyone, but when it comes to the small back-to-back chips I have been using the modified knife. It has allowed me a little more control and I don’t go to deep with it like I do the normal knife.

Marty,
I’ve been using your modified knife also. Easier to do curves, etc. Also less spliting ahead of the knife on with-grain cuts. I really like it.

Merrill – the correct size is ?

I’ll take a stab at your question not knowing exactly what size you are wondering about.
The two block sizes we are working with is 3-3/4×3-3/4 and 5-3/4×5-3/4.
The pattern in this lesson is sized to fit the 3-3/4 square block.
