there's also the issue of viewing. most people are going to be seeing the quilts on a computer screen and therefore the "far away", or smaller, image usually needs to be really strong. the thing is that the quilts read really differently when you see them in person. i used a light blue thread to quilt the whole thing, and the stitching is lost when viewed this small. live and learn, right? on that note, see all the detail shots here!
anyway, i'm happy i got this guy done, and i'm really excited to dive into all the ideas i have for the sci-fi quilts! the first one is going to be a remake of the first sci-fi quilt i made: attack on the v838 energy collectors. now that i know a little bit more of what i want the story quilts to look like, i'd like to go back in and improve on the original idea.

they're simple bandana handkerchief quilts with a circle and star quilted on each bandana. they've got a soft black and white striped backing fabric and red satin ribbon trim. there's only 3 up for now, but hopefully they'll sell well and i'll be making more.
check out all the glamour shots at my new etsy store: RoycroftQuilts!
and if anybody knows of stores in the nyc area that might be interested in selling them, i'd love to sell local. let me know.
