Finally finished my Nerdfighter t-shirt quilt!!! I’m so happy with how it turned out!! No one really gets all the nerdy stuff but I know and nerd fighters will know and that’s all that matters to me!! The 2nd one down on the left is DFTBA in galifrey, sadly the camera couldn’t pick it up. I thought the constellation fabric was fitting, and I loved the handwritten-letter print too much not to have it! So grateful to everyone who helped me with this project and to everyone who taught me how to make it! DFTBA


***giveaway is now closed***

It’s been THREE YEARS since I opened my etsy shop to boldly hold, and in honor of that I am having a quilt giveaway! (my last quilt giveaway)

There will be ONE prize: One custom quilt made by me for you! I’ll give you the fabric options; you’ll select the one you like, as well as over all design and I’ll make a quilt just for you!  Awesome right? You will have the option of Star Trek theme or a ‘plain’ quilt.

To enter you are allowed ONE REBLOG and ONE LIKE per day. Each note gets you one entry and I’ll use a random number generator to pick the winner. (I’m not responsible for any tumblr fuckary i.e. lost reblog’s or likes.)

You do not have to follow me to enter- however, when I select your name, if I see that you’re following me, you’ll get several more options in fabric and design of the quilt.

The giveaway will close on Sunday February 14th 2016 at 9PM PST. The winner will be tagged in a post and I’ll also send an ask, so be sure yours is open. The winner will have 24 hours to respond to the message. If I don’t receive a response within 24 hours, I will select another recipient.

Good luck!

If you don’t want to wait to get a quilt of your own, check out my shop To Boldly Hold

edited to add: I will ship internationally!


BB-8 Quilt
Approx 18″ x 12″ (smol quilt for a smol droid)
~6 hours of drunken sewing
2nd quilt in my Star Wars quilt series

Finished BB-8 quilt plus some progress pics!  

Can’t believe I didn’t post these here forever ago!  I got drunk and quilted this little guy one night back in May when I was mad at work.  All fabrics from a scrap bin, used an image of bb-8 as a template for piecing together the droid, and the I freehanded the background. The goal was to make it look like the dunes of Tattooine behind this little guy with a feeling of motion, like BB-8 was rushing to an adventure!  I think I did a pretty good job =)


Rebel Alliance Triangle Lap Quilt
Approx 50″x50″
2 weeks of cutting triangles while watching Leverage & 4 evenings of sewing triangles
1st quilt in my Star Wars quilt series


Finished it last night at 3am but I needed to wait for daylight to to take pictures worthy of its gloriousness =)  I made it from from a bunch of pieces from the scrapbin at the store, I think it was about 15GBP in total of fabric. And the backing is a Marimeko blanket I stole from the plane when I went to visit my sciencebro in Finland.

I’m super happy how this turned out, especially since it was a) my first quilt b) I refused to get up from the couch at anypoint to get a ruler. Literally everything was eyeballed. hahaha c) most of the difficult parts were done while I was drunk and angry and d) I didn’t have an iron so I had to make do =)

Now 👏  On to the next quilting adventure! I‘m thinking…. something with no straight lines at all.
