Whew, finished! Do you know that feeling?
This quilt was based on the zipper quilt that I saw in one of the Missouri Star Quilt Company’s Block magazines. You can watch Jenny Doan’s tutorial at the link below.
The main thing I changed was to start with 10″ squares (layer cakes) instead of charm packs. I used one layer cake and some Star Trek yardage that my husband and I stashed away over the last few years. The result is an extra long, king size, Star Trek zipper quilt.
A quilt of such Sci Fi magnitude screamed for a quilting design bolder than stipples, feathers, or simple geometrics. I decided to digitize a point to point command Insignia. With connected ends, every other one inverted, and nested the rows, the quilt has no top or bottom.
Admittedly I got carried away and had to remove one whole column before quilting so that I didn’t need to piece my backing and batting!
