Our Guild Quilt Challenge was due last night at our meeting. This year's theme was "Hooray for Hollywood". I've known since it was announced in January what kind of quilt I wanted to do.
I started it Friday.
You see, I've been working diligently for the last month on WD's birthday Minecraft quilt. I was doing the last of the quilting on Thursday when I decided two things. 1. The Minecraft quilt would not be done before his birthday and 2. I really wanted to make the Matrix quilt.
I spray basted the three layers, and then pinned over the top a neon green netting. I bought that on Sunday! Did the (roughly) straight line quilting on Sunday night and put the binding on Monday afternoon. Ready for voting at 6:30 last night!
*I did some Google searches before I started, but I couldn't find another Matrix quilt, so I might quite possibly have a one-of-a-kind quilt here.
*At the meeting last night one of my fellow members exclaimed "Rachel! I know the Matrix quilt is yours because you're such a nerd!"
*You can find the Wikipedia article on The Matrix Movie here. - There were actually three, plus other franchising, as well.
*It's going to go hang up in our garage upstairs, where Mr. Riley plays games with friends. I can't wait until they see it!
