Periodot Sunflower in a World of Its Own

Peridot Sunflower on the Starship Enterprise by Rosalind Newell

Peridot Sunflower on the Starship Enterprise by Rosalind Newell

Rosalind Newell has a flair for naming her quilts, and the March 15, 2009, featured quilt of the week in the Start Your Week With A Quilt newsletter is no exception. She has named it Peridot Sunflower on the Starship Enterprise.

This quilt was made in a class taught by Maxine Moore.  The purpose of the class was to learn a new technique called “piece-liqué.” The technique, created by renowned quilter Sharon Schamber, is a way to make a curved appliqué  quilt by piecing it on a sewing machine. 

When asked how did she come up with the name of the quilt Roz says, “the green is peridot, my August birthstone. It looks like it is floating in space on the black batik background –hence the Starship Enterprise.”

Then she adds slyly,  “Maybe Lieutenant Worf gave it to me!!”

For Startrek fans, Roz always had a crush on Lieutenant Worf. He is her kind of specimen. For those who don’t have a clue about Startrek, I can’t explain it here. Just enjoy the quilt!
