Lately I've been playing some older Zelda games. And the way my train of thought goes I get to thinking of one thing which leads to about 500 other things and so now I'm here typing up this new subject.
Remember like half a year ago I came up with that idea to make a wall hanging the map from Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker? Well, I got to thinking about that and how to tackle it when I get around to it. If I want the map to scale I'd either have to make the islands super small and impossible to sew or make the wall hanging exceedingly huge and might as well be a regular quilt.
I think I came up with an idea to solve the problem: fabric printing. Could print the islands on 6" blocks so then it could be to scale. But I'm not sure how well this would work because I've never printed on fabric before. The other thing I'm worried about is it having a "fake" look to it.
And even if I went and quilted the islands I'm not sure how I would quilt the whole thing together (I didn't get to thinking that far when I first came up with this idea). I thought about quilting in the currents of the sea and then I remembered: there were no sea or wind currents in the game and I'm not about to make any up. Got any ideas?
