~A New Quilt......Fourty Years of Light~



 I have one very special quilt in the making right now which I think is going to be called
 'Fourty Years of Light'
I had quite a bit of help with this one from my Mr Armchair and my Very Dear Friend Geo (no blog)
We went to Geo's place one weekend to work on it
I drew up what I had an idea of in my head
Between Mr Armchair and Geo they did all the maths and measurements for me


 Fabrics set to go




The 'rainbow' is stitched together


The triangle is measured out



Looking familiar now?
We are huge Pink Floyd fans here and this is my interpretation of 'Dark Side of the Moon'

Borders starting to happen


All stitched


and finally pinned
Looking sooooo good!!!

Geo shared a bit on White Light with me and the physics of it all
Now to work out how to quilt it!!!

For a similar quilt have a look over here

Shine On.......
Happy Quilting, Dzintra xo

Awesome!!! That is so cool!! I was the biggest Pink Floyd was I was the teenager, I had 3 copies of Dark Side Of The Moon, plus all their other records. I'll listen to it today in honour of your brilliant quilt top. I love that Mr Q and Geo helped too.

Good morning Dzintra! You are lucky to have had math assistance on this; that is the part I would never get right, all the proper calculations!!!! It is going to be a deLIGHTful quilt my friend. So many wonderful colors! Enjoy your day as you work (and also continue to plan your trip!!!) Anita

FABULOUS! What a great idea turned reality!
One of my brothers actually wore out TWO vinyls of that record... it was etched in my ears...
I totally love it & I'm so pleased for you that your vision for it has turned out so well. Congrats... now go play your record!
