This reader’s submission started out as a comment on the “Whaddja Give? Whaddja Get?” post on what our readers gave or got as holiday gifts.  Chris Marshall was intrigued and followed up by asking for a photo to be sent in.

I made a Wooden Memory Quilt for my sister-in-law for Christmas. Each square has a special meaning.

Intarsia, segmentation, inlay, and fretwork make up the squares.  I used patterns designed by others for the squares  to design my own quilt.

The quilt measures 3’ x 4’. I used a protective gel varnish.

I have been working with wood for about 3 years and love it. A new band saw and router this year for Christmas; can’t wait to see what comes out of the woodshed next.
