Ater making so many quilts for family, friends and Quilts Of Valour, I've decided that 2010 is going to be 'my' applique year again for my very own quilt. I've suddenly realised that I've only finished up with one quilt for DH and my use.
But, even with my absolute love of the subject, STAR TREK lol I think I'm going to need some help here. I must admit it's been one of my favourite programmes since I was a kid.
The only idea I have come up with is the "Attic Window" block in various sizes with space themed fabric as the large back fabric. Within some of these blocks I thought of appliqueing some items/symbols that would automatically make you think of Star Trek. ie, the badge, the 3D chess set, the Enterprise... heck, I might even add a furry little tribble!!
From that, I thought of adding a tall ST figure with their back facing as thought they are looking at these objects and through the windows.
The problems I'm having at the moment is locating some space fabric from a UK shop. I've seen some star fabric... it was nice but it's not what I'm looking for so any links would be greatly appreciated.
Also, does anyone have any colour suggestions/pictures for the other fabric pieces and the sashing?
As you can gather, I haven't even started drawing up designs yet, so any help, suggestions or other ideas for a Star Trek quilt would be great.
Thanks in advance for any help
