    Hi, I am new here but have been following the board for a few months. My question is, Does anyone know if there is such a thing as Star Trek Fabric out there? I want to make a quilt for a "TREKKIE"
    (Not sure on that spelling) I have not been satisfied w/what I've been seeing online. Thanks to all

    Welcome from New York.

    I've never heard of a Star Trek fabric. Sorry!

    My son is a Trekkie, so if there was something out there, I would know about it!

    Haven't heard of Star Trek fabric and my BGF is both a quilter and a trekie and would have bolts of it if it existed. She buys space fabric and makes her quilts from that.

    I had the same trouble making a doctor who quilt. I ended up buying different space themed fabrics and appliquéing Tardis in many squares. You could do the same with the Enterprise. I took pictures off the Internet and put them on Printed Treasure using my printer. Cut them out. Fused them to the quilt then satin stitched around them My daughter loved the quilt.

    Thanks for all the welcomes, I kind of thought that might be the case w/the Star Trek fabric but thought I'd give it a try anyway. Ya never know what someone else has available. I might take you up on the space design fabric but I really don't like to do applique. I might do borders though.

    Welcome from Texas. It seams like years ago I saw a quilt with the star ship fabric. I don't remember where, it may have been ready made in a catalog.

    Welcome from a fellow Trekkie (I watched the original series at noon hours home from school.!!)
    I've never seen any themed material but it wouldn't be too hard to mock up applique ships or do them as a paper piecing exercise. Start with photos from the web sites and then there are books and comics that have lovely line diagrams.
    Good luck. (Sadly my trekkies outgrew this obsession when they hit College and swtiched to gameing.)

    Welcome from another Michigander. No help with the fabric but keep looking and watching here. These quilters know more, find more and help out one another more that one would ever believe.
