Description

Another mini for my daughter's dorm room. She's a chemistry major and I saw a stylized picture of the table of elements so I thought I'd do something similar as a quilt. We can also spell our last name (Butler) using elements and her initials are S K. I took the easy way out and used a sharpie to write the relevant elements in their respective spots. Of course, I had just been gifted the Rikley Blake chemical equations a couple of weeks ago by +true so that was a perfect choice for the background. I was worried it might be a bit too busy but it's not bad. 

The quilting definitely helped. Before I sewed in the lines between the element tiles, it was pretty bland.

update June 26, 2015 - finished and it's already in the mail to her.

HawkFan

Caribousmom That's what I hear - looks like I have a typo and got his name turned around wink

HawkFan

Thank you Ibtreerock - I wasn't sure about it before the quilting but it's growing on me smile

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary! I may actually get it to her by the 1st too

Terryt1955

You guys are so lucky to be so geeky! This is great!

HawkFan

Terryt1955 Thanks Terry. I take pride in my nerdiness. No sense fighting it wink

Terryt1955

That's right girl, embrace it!

Quilt455

This is great for her. You are so creative.

HawkFan

Quilt455 Thanks Cathie. It doesn't come easy to me so I'm happy when I come up with something that works.It's a challenge to do one a month!

Terryt1955

What is this baloney about you having to struggle with being creative. You have "come up" with pillows and minis for a year. You're not only creative but crazy!

HawkFan

Haha Terryt1955 thank you. I eventually get there but I have to let my brain work on it for a while, or I have to randomly spot something that gives me an idea. Maybe I need to read about "artistic types" and their process to feel more competent. They always make it seem so easy and natural. I will, however, cop to the crazy part wink

smiley Well we like your kind of crazy HawkFan .

Skynme

I think this is really creative and you daughter is very lucky to have such a loving Mom to make her all of these wonderful things.

HawkFan

Skynme Thank you Erica. I'm excited to hear what she thinks about it. She is very appreciative which makes it worthwhile

ArloDeanQuilts Thanks Belinda. It was fairly easy to do since it's all squares.
