I made this wooden quilt block and plaque to hang under it for my wife to put in her sewing room. Very fun to make the quilt block, I will be trying others.

Great job Paul. You appear to have the straight blades down pat with all your plaques. I’m still mostly a spiral man, cutting in any direction without spinning the project. But it limits what I do. Will have to jump on your wagon and start using some straight ones. Always enjoy seeing your work. Mike

I’m a cheater. I actually used three blades cutting the letters. I use a Pegas #1 double tooth to cut the bulk part of each letter out. Went back with a #5 FD TC blade to make the straight little ticks at the tops and bottoms of each letter because the #5 was thicker and easier to do that with, then I went back with a Pegas 2/0 spiral to smooth out and better curve areas that need it like on the small “a”s and small “g”. Just to clean them up a little.

No such thing as a cheater Paul, that is an excellent result in both the joinery and Lettering.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul, It looks great. I’ve seen several projects and some blogs on cutting quilting patterns in wood. That is now near the top of my woodworking to-do list because they are eye-catching. Did you make special cutting jigs?

I like your 3-step method for scroll sawing the lettering. I’ve been doing this a long time and have always picked a blade and made it work. I think breaking it down as you did probably trades a little more time spent for a lot less stress to get very clear letter cutting. I will try your common sense approach next time I do letter cutting.
