I’m still participating in the Wonky Quilt Bee. We’re taking it a bit slower this round, having two months to work on the other person’s block. We’re also doing a traveling quilting this round, so each person will receive a full quilt top at the end of our bee.
This month, I had Amanda from The Craft Junky. She asked for blocks that matched her personality (a tall order) and gave a list of things she liked. Here’s her list:
The Alien Movies
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Superheros (Batman is #1 fave!)
Lord of the Rings
Dr. Horrible’s Sing along Blog
games and gaming
The Princess Bride
Big Bang theory
pictures and photography
toys and dolls
vintage cameras, particularly polaroids
arrows, feathers, stars and triangles
I love her list! It’s awesome. Being an avid Princess Bride fan, I decided to go that route.
I re-created the Cliffs of Insanity and appliquéd “inconceivable” on it. The appliqué pulled the base fabric a bit, but I think it will be okay once everything is quilted.
The second thing I made was this long arrow. Originally, I’d intended on doing a feather, but it didn’t work out so well, so I transformed it into an arrow.
Here’s the entire quilt so far. I love seeing how everything comes together. I’m excited to see all the quilts as they move from person to person.
I really love what you made for her quilt. I agree; matching Amanda’s personality is difficult to do! I think you nailed it.
