Why this quilt pattern is called “Geese on the Move”, I sure don’t know.
But what I do know is that it makes a great quilt square chip carving.
I’ll show you how to carve two-sided chips in this lesson.

Here you go:

thank you, most informative.
Marty can we get a bit of history on the art of chip carving. Where did it originate? My thought is who was board at the fireside in the evenings.

This just in…When you get to the finishing portion of the Quilt project you may want to pass along a tip. When applying a sanding sealer or for that matter, a finish, make sure you apply it to both sides. I didn’t and now I have a nice bow in my blocks. I don’t know if they will straighten out if I apply the sealer to the opposite side.

I was going to cover this when I tell you how to finish your carving, but in case some of you are racing ahead…always apply finish to all surfaces of your item. This holds true for woodworking as well, because wood with a finish on it does not give off and take on moisture at the same rate as wood that is not finished. When moisture content is uneven, warping occurs.

Dave asks…Marty can we get a bit of history on the art of chip carving. Where did it originate?

Ask for “a bit” and that’s exactly what you’ll get.
Chip carving has been around for hundreds of years and has European roots. The style of chip carving I’m teaching you is Swiss, called kirbschnitzen, ‘engraving carving’. I’m told by Marlise Barton, that her husband, Wayne, decided to call it chip carving, rather than engraving carving.
There you go, just ‘a bit’!

Great video Marty and a lots of nice clean cuts and learning points too. I think Debbie was rather clever in realizing that the ‘V’ form was what calls to mind geese. I think they get a lot of them in Canada.
