I know, I know, I’m not quite done the Firefly cross-stitch project yet and I’m not allowed to take on other big projects until I am. But I’ve been thinking about what I want to do for my next quilt. My crafting style is pretty much implementation of other people’s patterns, but after finishing BSG Season 3, I started wanting to do something with Starbuck’s mandala.
Autumn from Geek Six has done some beautiful repaintings of the mandala, like this one on a laundry room wall. I did a small version in colored pencils to add to my geeky workspace and that got me wondering if maybe I could do something more with it…like quilt it.
I had plain fabric in blue, red, and yellow, so I took a crack at how putting it together might work. Kind of a quick job so I didn’t pay as much attention to loose threads, etc. I think I’d have to do more planning beforehand & be sure it’s something I want to do…but it might work.
Note: The proportions are off but that’s because I was using scraps & didn’t have enough of the blue.
What do you think? Good idea for a project? Quilting not the right medium?
