i made, what i imagined to be, a future version of a basic cargo blanket. one that my space trucker might find in the cargo bay of his ship. i thought this would be an interesting background for a star field quilt. i'm projecting an image of ancient, white dwarf stars in the milky way onto it and machine quilting stars into it.

i have been a proponent of having your own flag for a long time. i've had my flag for about 8 years. actually, i had to make a new one last year because the old one was tattered (i.e. awesome!) this is my friend alex's. he gave me the design he wanted and i made it for him. he's a bike guy (not a nazi)
he also makes amazing jewelry. check it out: alexander pakis

got all the pieces of the "sandwich" put together and have started quilting the pillars of creation quilt. i also moved into a new studio space this week and it's more than double the size of my old one! even though it's still kind of a wreck in there, the quilting hoop was the first thing to go up, so i didn't have to wait to get started.
