Voltron: A Finished Quilt for my Husband

Voltron Quilt

The Most important quilt I’ve ever made

That about sums up how I feel about this Voltron quilt.  Kevin has [not] been patiently waiting for almost five years for this quilt.  It started with something he had sketched out saying how it would be a great quilt.  And me giving him the look.  You know the one that says you’re crazy.  I had been quilting for a long time but I don’t venture past my comfort zone very often.  This time I did, for him.  No pattern just me making it up as I go.

Why is it the most important quilt I have ever made?  This was my breakthrough quilt. This was the quilt that helped me think outside the box.  The idea of making up a pattern or just figuring it out as I go is very intimidating to me. This Voltron quilt took me to a new level of thinking and planning.  And also challenged the way I did things. Remembering my favorite saying, ” Do one thing that scares you everyday, ”  I jumped right in. My only comfort is that I could always just start over, right?

One of my favorite things about this quilt is the different color lines on the outside border.

Details of Voltron Quilt

 

My husband and I are both very nostalgic. We grew up watching Voltron in the 80’s. My husband has the Voltron he used to play with when he was a kid. Now our daughter plays with them. It’s fun watching her play with something we once loved.
