Finished up the binding on the contest quilt last night. Final name for the quilt is "It's Quilting, Jim, But Not As We Know It". And yes, that is a reference to Star Trek because the design I did for the sashing stars looks very much like the communicators on the show (unintentionally!). It's also a nod to the theme of the contest which was to take traditional blocks and remake them in a modern way. Best estimate is that there is over 800 yds of thread in the quilting of this critter. It finished out at 48" by 60".
Additional pics show closer up pics of quilting on two of the blocks.
Also below is a pic of the finished t-shirt dress that I made for my Operation Christmas Child box and a snack mat that is currently in the binding process. It will be a Christmas gift. Still to make to go with it is a tea cozy....just need to find a pattern for one.
