Wooden Memory Quilt

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.

  1. I have enjoyed the scroll saw for years and your quilt has re-inspired me. I want to make a scroll saw picture frame and incorporate the beaver from your quilt. Would you object to me copying from your quilt?

  2. I did not realize until now that my picture had been posted !!! Cool.
    Yes Jim you are more than welcome to copy from my quilt. Actually I think I go the beaver pattern from the Patrick Spielman “Southwest Scroll Saw Patterns”.

  3. Hola! I’ve been following your blog for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Kingwood Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the good job!
