Discover a fresh, new woodcraft that consists of cutting and piecing together wooden quilt blocks to make elaborate yet accessible wall hangings, decor, and more! Wood Mosaic Projects covers the basics for reinventing traditional quilt designs from wood. Featuring tips on selecting patterns, cutting pieces to fit snuggly, adding color, and putting it all together, this exciting new hobby is intriguing, original, and sustainable! Author and artist Troy Murrah is a passionate carpenter that has created this unique artform to pay homage to his late mother, Judy Murrah, who was a renowned quilter as the VP of Education and Administration of Quilts Inc.


Troy Murrah:
Troy Murrah holds a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas, Austin. He has 20+ years working in production and set design, building and designing recording studios, and saving up material (wood, metal, doors, window frames, etc.) leftover from these jobs along with discarded cabinetry and shelving left on the roadside. Initially as a way to feel closer to his mother (quilter and educator Judy Murrah) after her passing, Built Quilt (wood quilts) ended up being a great way to use up the reclaimed material and bring new life to the old. Taking on a life of its own, Built Quilt continues to expand with new artistic additions created on an ongoing basis. Troy's work has appeared in Arte Morbida, The Jealous Curator, Aspire Design and Home, Selvedge Magazine (blog), and Voyage LA.
