« Part 12: Lesson 7: Chip Carving Square #3 Part 13 of Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares series Part 14: Lesson 8 - Applying a Finish »

I’ve created 9 – 3-3/4” patterns and 6 – 5-3/4” patterns that you can pick from to chip carve. Creating your own patterns is encouraged too.

Here’s a glimpse of one page of the 3-3/4” patterns.

The easiest way I could come up with for you to be able to download these quilt square patterns I’ve prepared, is to post them in the My Chip Carving Member area.

If you are already a member – log in and go to the Pattern Vault and look for the yellow NEW listings.
If you are not a member yet – sign up here and choose the membership you desire. Once complete, you will log in and enter the Pattern Vault and look for the yellow NEW listings.

These patterns are available to all Gold (free) and Platinum Members.

Marty,

I’d be interested in some tips on how to carve the patterns with curves—like the one on the upper right above—if you have the time.

Hey Ron, you are not alone in wanting to know how to chip carve smooth curves. This is a common challenge for chip carvers and has been one of my most popular and welcome lessons for My Chip Carving Members.
With this focus of this class on chip carving basics for beginners, I think I’ll do this. I have created a lesson on how to carve a “Crossed Tulips” quilt pattern. This pattern is similar to the upper right pattern you mentioned, Ron. I’ll make this lesson available in the My Chip Carving Video Vault for Platinum Members. That way you can check it out if you’d like. Login here. Signup here.
In the Platinum Member Video Vault you will also find the lesson called, “Chip Carving Smooth, Chatter-free Curves” and others that teach the skills you can practice when carving curves.
Maybe if Debbie wants me to teach another chip carving class in the future, I can get into this area.

Hey, Bob.
I like it. A pattern doesn’t have to be fancy to fill the bill.
If you’ve not carved four, three-corner chips in a square, like those on your pattern, it’s a good idea to try them first on a practice board. Watch that you don’t undercut in the center of the square. You’ll find out what happens if you do, and you won’t like it :-)

I realize you have to be a member to see the patterns so a few may not know what I am asking. If your not a member signup. It is worth it.

Ok, Marty…on page 5 of “Quilt patterns, 5-3/4” square” is one heck of a pattern. Have you created this one before? I am still trying to figure out the best way to even highlight it so I know what to carve. Any tips on this one?

Look to the top right corner of this carving and you’ll see how I carved the star found in the repeating pattern you are referring to. I hope this gives you a good starting point!

The patterns are really nice, Marty. Thanks. I like the crossed tulips buy I’m a little unsure how to layout the chips on that one. :) I hope I can do some this weekend but I’ve been practicing on box lid patterns. I’m enjoying it though.

Charles, I just released a video on how to carve the crossed tulips pattern! Access the video through your My Chip Carving Platinum Membership and open the Video Vault. Scroll down the page and there it is!
I’m glad you are enjoying this wonderful skill. I still find it fun after 25+ years of chip carving!
