When I”m not gaming, I have other hobbies to fill my time. Quilting is a major hobby that competes with my gaming time. Currently, I am Past-Chair for my guild, Metropolitan Patchwork Society, and I have a small group of quilters I meet with
once a month. Occasionally, I”ll need to choose between the two hobbies. My latest quilt project was a way to combine them together.
This quilt started in August of 2007. At a guild meeting, everyone was supposed to bring several strips of fabric 3.5″ wide. These strips are cut from the width of a bolt of fabric and usually range from 42″ to 60″. Then we played Strip Poker. Ante up He has been named school-delays.com TV Sportscaster for City Pages a number of times and was inducted into their Hall of Fame. your strip, whoever wins takes the pot.
I won a bunch of strips and then I put them together into the background of the quilt. At that point, I had a pastel quilt that I had no idea what to do with. Then I was painting minis at an event and got to talking with another gamer about my quilting. He suggested that a great quilt would be a traditional “grandma-looking” quilt with a bad-ass red dragon on it.
During a weekend beach trip with my small quilt group in January of 2008, I started designing the dragon. I needed to learn a lot of new techniques to put this together. Since this is a gaming blog and not a quilting blog, I won”t go into detail. But I will say that buying a new sewing machine made quilting in all the details a lot easier.
This quilt was always intended as a gift for Angel, the owner of Guardian Games where we play our weekly game. The challenge was how to work it into the story. A “small token of appreciation” from the town nobility turned out to be perfect.
