I finished working on my LOST-themed quilt! And I'm very proud of it. I included a lot of pictures in the post because I wanted to show you all the images I used. There are 96 "moments" and 48 "character" images plus the center logo.
The center of the quilt symbolizes the survivors surrounded by water since they're on an island. I quilted undulating lines to indicate the feel of water.
I quilted leaves in this border which, of course, symbolizes the jungle. I put the octagon shape in each corner.
The moments from Season 1 -4 are on sand-colored fabric to symbolize the beach.
Here is the label for the Lost quilt. All quilters put a label on the back of their quilts: They usually have a title and the name of the quilter with a date. Additional information can be added like who the quilt was for and for what occasion. (For some reason, I don't know how to get the images up from Word. I put the Lost cast picture in the center, and a picture of a palm tree on an island on either side.) I wanted to put in some of the most notable quotes, some things that didn't work well in an image (for example, The Whispers), and the major themes of the show.
