Some Wood Quilts

Sometimes the line between my quilting and woodworking gets a bit blurred. This first photo of a wood quilt is framed with salvaged wood from an old mill in Northeastern Ohio. In fact this wood quilt presently resides at the restored mill house.


This second photo is of yet another wood quilt. A variation of the Ohio Star, for an avid Ohio State University graduate and fan.


The final four wood quilts were made as a commission for a local customer. The wood quilts are assembled with multiple smaller squares of wood. The making of these wood quilts is very similar to the making of a fabric quilt. Consider the following comparisons:
