Mountain Block for the Sunset Sky

 This piece called for a new block.  This one is 4" square - the size I am making most of my new blocks these days.



It is all printed and ready for quilting.  I am loving the new block and am really pleased with the piece so far.

...and I would be pleased too! Like the way the new stamp 'performed' on this piece! Nice visual interest, for sure.

I made a stamp similar to this one last year and love it, but I never thought to use it the way you have. Very nice piece--I love how this piece is working out...

Cynthia,

Are you still using the rubber gasket material to carve your stamps?

Cynthia St Charles said...

No Louise, I have not been able to find the plumbers gasket material locally any more. I have tried ordering it online and the product was too thin to carve. I have switched to a 3/8" thick recycled rubber material that I order from a school supply company called Nasco. It is thick enough that I don't have to mount it on a wood block.

I bought the gasket material at a transmission place here. It comes in 2 thicknesses & a couple of widths. I can't remember atm if I bought it by the inch or the foot. A plumbing supply place suggested I try them.
