I, too, am a fan of the show (though a season behind, I must admit) and I think her quilt idea is inspired! It's also unique, and I wouldn't want to do anything to change that. The designer in me wishes to respect other people's great ideas and simply use it as motivation for my own projects. But what a wealth of subject matter it affords!
That said, I happened to read that blog entry while I was coming to the end of re-watching a favorite, though not-so-critically-acclaimed, Joss Whedon show, Dollhouse. And all I could think about for days was finding ways of bringing the characters and themes of the show to some quilty fruition.
It's another fun sci-fi show based in our reality, just turned up a notch toward a somewhat darker view of the near future. And for a show about people who are reprogrammed to be whomever the client orders at any given time, the characters are really well fleshed out and fully 3-D.
Which is part of what makes this eminent project enticing.
Also, there's an image that may lend itself well to being translated into a quilt block...
...but not an easy one. I even had to go in search of a protractor! When was the last time you sought out a protractor?? 72°, baby! And the sketches commenced.
and of course the fabric selection challenge... just a few for now.
And only tangentially related, as I write this post, while Austin is hosting the first annual QuiltCon, Portland is host to just a plain old regular Comic-Con which MAY have some of the actors, writers and creators of these favorite shows of mine in attendance. To stalk or not to stalk, that is the question...
