Earlier this year, Fox Chapel Publishing, through it’s Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts forum organized a benefit for the Japan relief through a quilt auction. Each square was 3” x 3” and had to fit certain size, thickness, hole positions and other specifications.

The attached pictures was my contribution to the group project. I had some scrap pine that I milled down to 1/4” and cut a detailed design and then painted another 1/4” square red as in the Japanese flag and glued them together. It looked way too delicate to sand down, so I left it au naturale.

You can see how may folks contributed their time and skills to the project in the attached finished pictures. The quilts were auctioned off on eBay a few weeks ago. I loved the variety of the contributed squares and was proud to be part of it. With all of the hurricane Irene devastation here in our country, I’d be more than willing to contribute to another project like this to help some of us closer to home this time.

Those are really neat. Your contribution was quite well done, too.
