I love playing music and I love Star Trek. Although I don’t normally idolize fictitious characters, First Officer Spock is definitely an exception. So I had to make the Vulcan Harp for my first Star Trek quilt pattern. Keeping with the Vulcan theme, I used the IDIC symbol – Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations – for the quilting design, an idea which I believe applies equally to music.
I stretched the symbol so it would cover the whole wall hanging and used a variegated yellow-orange thread for the quilting.
For some reason I couldn’t displace the idea of using a sine curve to quilting the border. I intersected the straight lines at the corners and turned the corners at the crossings for a continuous curve. I really love the finished Vulcan Harp and this very special wall hanging will now reside in our living room!
