    The quilt I made for William Shatner (Capt. Kirk Star Trek)

    First of all, let me say that the earliest memories I have are watching Star Trek on Thursday nights with my dad. William Shatner is the only actor I have ever admired. When he created his own forum, I was one of the first to sign up. Through the years we all became a very close knit family.

    Bill had hosted a charity paintball game in Juliet, Ill for the past several years and I decided to try my hand at paintball. (ow, hurts A LOT) But anyway, I had the idea of having the regular forum posters making quilt squares and sending them to me so I could make a quilt. This immediately went nuts!!! I was sending plain white quilt squares all over the world!!! It was amazing! So I pieced all the squares together from fans all over the globe, and made them into the quilt that you see...



    This was the first time I met Bill Shatner (but not the last!!!) and it was amazing! I had also made a smaller quilt for his daughter, Lisabeth. It's just something I'm very proud of!

    Original is absolutely the best. You can say hi to him yourself if you want! He has Shatner Weekend every year, last weekend in April in LA.

    I'd be proud too! That is a pretty cool story. So when did you gift it to him? Was this picture taken after the paintball game? Which one in the picture is you? I too remember Star Trek as a kid but my mom was very strict about bed time so I didn't truly get into the series until it was in syndication.

    What a fun quilt story! I'm sure they both appreciated the work you put into the quilts. And I, too, wish you had taken close up shots. I'm curious, how many squares did you receive?
