Travis Ruins Another Perfect Dinner Party


Travis Ruins Another Perfect Dinner Party

71"w x 71"h

Materials: commercial cotton prints, metallic and novelty synthetic fabrics, rubberized shelf liner, linen napkins, chopsticks, novelty trims, Sulky variegated thread

I made this quilt for the AQS “New Quilts from an Old Favorite” challenge, with the “Dresden Plate” block. I thought Dresden plates looked like Japanese Imari plates, so I proceeded to create a perfect Japanese table setting with lovely food and accessories. The whole thing was much too formal for me, though, so I decided Travis should enter the scene with his Big Mac and super-sized drink. We all know somebody like him…right???
