Somehow Cindy figured out that I maybe-sort-of like Star Wars, and based on a class she took at the Fat Quarterly retreat, she decided to make me a porthole view from the Millennium Falcon. Alderaan! Tatooine! Those other planets I can’t remember the names of!
|A long time ago in a galaxy far away in my sewing room…|
Cindy posted a lot of detail shots of the quilt on her blog before she sent it over, so you can go there for some more photos, but I told her I would present it in proper context:
|So what if I have 3 different Han Solo action figures? I can quit any time I want.|
For the full effect, you have to put on the 3-D glasses to view the planet fabric (thanks, Rhonda, for helping Cindy out!) and yell “That’s no moon!” or “I made the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs!” I love the swirly batiks for the planets.
Thank you, Cindy! I love it. And thanks for the extra goodies for all the kids (human and feline).
Bonus semi-related Helper Cat photos:
