Game of Thrones and Quilts
There was nothing.
Not even instructions for making Kaleese's costume.
(Although now that I look at this I am wondering if I wouldn't make a quite a splash were I to wear it to my next Quilt Guild meeting.)
If there is nothing on the web, we shall have to create it, yes?
I searched for blocks whose names contained the word Throne. Zilch. But I hit paydirt (pay quilt?) when I looked for those which contained the word King. On the right, King's cross and on the left King's Crown. I am thinking a border of the Cross with blocks of the Crown and something fun in the middle. The choice seems obvious as the second season begins. A dragon!
It makes me wish I had one of those electronic software programs for designing quilts.
I don't actually want to have a Game of Thrones quilt, I just like the idea of designing one.
TV shows, books and movies can be like that. You don't want to live it, it's just a fantasy.
My real life is much better and so are my real quilts. But in that fantasy life, I am wearing that super cool outfit and working on my Game of Throne quilt.
Enjoy either your real life or your fantasy one. I feel there is a lot less laundry in the fantasy life... but less dragons in the real one!
