No, this is not about bears in the woods.
I have been commissioned to create a quilt for a Star Trek fan(atic).
I would not have considered this quilt had not my recent works been spherical Celtic knots. Planets are spherical too.
I found a coloring book page on the Internet.
I designed a new spherical knot to replace the cratered moon.
What sort of planet is this? Well, oceans would be nice.
How about some jungles, open ground, and mountains?
Think I’ll take it . . .
I initially proposed a complex Hextic knot to work on, but after some consideration, I decided to go with a simpler Hextic knot.
I also decided to turn the knot inside out, as it were.
I think these might be fun.
I have set a challenge for myself.
I will make two quilts this month. One quilt will be patchwork, the other quilt applique. Both quilts will use the same rainbow palette of fabrics.
The working title of the patchwork quilt is “Jesus Loves the Little Children.” This is a line drawing of it. You may recognize it as my “Running Man” (or “Mardi Gras Men”).
The applique quilt will be a Hextic knot.
Both finished quilts will be displayed the first Sunday of December at a local café.
I invite you to watch my progress.
