J. Random Thought for the moment - I found a lovely quilt pattern. It's a Pine Burr Quilt pattern, and it's the state quilt of Alabama. http://www.archives.state.al.us/emblems/st_quilt.html I wonder if Texas has a state quilt? I'll have to look.
However, the point of this post is this: the Pine Burr quilt is lovely. Beautiful. And I looked at it and thought to myself "Hmm... do that in browns, ivories and pink and you have the Sarlaac Pit from Return of the Jedi!" So now I want to make one - not as a quilt, but as a rug. Out of felt. I think it's do-able.
The Sarlaac Pit rug would have one major advantage/disadvantage: it would catch all the dust and random pieces of stuff on the floor. All those layers. So I may make one, for a dust catcher and cat toy, if nothing else!
Random Thought of the Moment over.
P.S. I didn't immediately find a State Quilt for Texas. Wouldn't surprise me if there is one.
