2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Roller Derby Quilt!! on: September 25, 2008 06:28:56 AM
I'm posting this for Dreadnought of the Boston Derby Dames:

I'm working on a collaborative quilting project focusing on roller derby themes and imagery. I'm trying to get skaters, fans, and friends of derby from around the country to contribute squares featuring their teams, names, and numbers.

This quilt is made up of 8" x 8" squares representing all sorts of roller-derby related themes. So far squares dedicated to specific skaters, refs, teams, and leagues make up the bulk of the quilt, and it's growing pretty quickly. This is a great way to use up old uniform scraps, shredded fishnets, and other derby bits and pieces. I have a few images of the quilt-in-progress here:



If you break out in a rash when someone mentions the word "craft", I'd be thrilled for an old uniform scrap, or even your league name and number written on some fabric in sharpie. I'm even happy to make a square myself if you'd send me some old uniform parts or merch featuring team and/or league names.

If you are interested in contributing to the quilt, please email Dreadnought at [email protected].  Also, check out her league at http://www.bostonderbydames.com!  And if you have time... check out my league, the Magnolia Roller Vixens at http://www.magnoliarollervixens.com!!   Grin

i would like to see some pics with out the belt so i can see how it joins but i love love love it!
It looks like an ugly muu muu without the belt  Tongue  But there is no joining.. it is all one rectangle of fabric.

Cute dress! Was the shirred part separate from the rest of the dress, or is the whole thing just one big piece of fabric shirred at the top?
Great job!
Yes it is all made from one big massive rectangle of fabric.  I just shirred the top.  I only shirred down to my boobs Tongue  So it has a kind of empire waist... I got really tired of sewing all the rows.. I originally wanted to shirr it down tot he waist so it was more fitted without the belt.

I had a few extra yards on this really cute pastry fabric laying around... so I decided to make a dress with it.  I was making it to wear for Easter, but the weather has decided to be VERY unspring like.. so hopefully it wont be too cold.  I got a cute red cardigan to wear with it just in case tho!

I used mickncrispy's Shirred tube top tute to make the dress.  It's just a big huge rectangle of fabric (well two big rectangles b/c I added lining).  The pleats in the front are from an oops.. I miscalculated the stretchyness of the elastic and made it too big, so I added darts in the fron to take in the extra fabric.. and this created the pleats.  The belt is from a project on Simplicity's website.  I also made my dress tie like a halter top.

All in all the whole outfit took about 4-5 hours to make (lol stretched over 4 days because I kept procrastinating  Tongue)

Anyhooooo on to the pics!

scumkatt, i agree... but my husband brought up a good point... they could have let jeffery show as a decoy b/c they know pictures of the shows get leaked within hours.  (I too was one of the ones watching getty images all day during OFW)
