Tumbling Block Trivet 2
This is a “Tumbling Block” quilt pattern trivet. It is made using diamonds and triangles from different kinds of wood, all in their natural colors. There are 30 pieces on this block, 24 diamonds and 6 triangles, all full size. There are as many stars as blocks. At the side of each diamond is the middle of a block. At the point of each diamond is the middle of a star with 6 points. It measures 4 ½” across. To finish them, I use 5 or 6 coats of a clear wiping varnish, rubbed in by hand.
The type of wood is listed on the bottom from the center out. On this quilt block the wood is “Hackberry”, “Oak”, and “Walnut” from Missouri.
On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date, the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on a foot powered table saw.
The five pictures show the different look the one trivet can have as you lay it down different ways.
