I found this pattern in my wife’s quilt book and thought i would give it a try. I had built a jig based on WoodMosiacs blog and made a tumbling blocks pattern. For this I adjusted the jig from 30 degrees to 45 degrees and cut away. Maple, Walnut, Cherry, and Yellowheart. Watco Danish Oil as a finish. It is 10.5’ square. I will probably use it as a top for a sewing box. I think the next one would have the Yellowheart in the center.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Very nice Robert. I have quilted that pattern before and love it. I can see the difference the placement of the yellowheart could make. Some lucky quilter will love that as a sewing box top.
