« Part 17: There's still time to send me your squares Part 18 of Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares series no next part

I’ve assembled the chip carved quilt with the squares that many of you sent my way.

My apologies to those of you who don’t see your square in the quilt. I tried my best to get as many as possible in the space and finally had to leave some out. So sorry.

Now, please go to Ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190542019969) where I’ve posted this quilt on the auction block with all funds received going to the My Chip Carving Foundation, to help those who want to learn to chip carve who are unable to afford the basic supplies. I hope many of your will bid and spread the word to others you know who may be interested in bidding.
Auction will end on Wednesday, June 15th.

I haven’t yet mastered chip carving, but I have done a bit of quilting. This is a fantastic interpretation of the art of quilting. And a very fine example of the art and craft of chip carving.

I have to say Marty that I’m really impressed with the quality and variation of work on that quilt. They must have had a really good teacher! Well done one and all!

Marty, that looks great. You did that just right and it looks so good.

The quilt looks good Marty! Nice assembly on the frame which really adds shadow to the carvings. Someone will be the proud owner, and the money raised for the Foundation will help get some new chip carvers out there interested and on their way to making chips.
