So while we don't have a fancy lathe or mill in my home, we do have a $1600 bernina sewing machine for my wife (she's been quilting since the late 90's). My wife is interested in doing some Star Wars themed quilts, and might even sell a few. I've got some ideas, and it's not stuff that she or I have seen on pinterest or elsewhere. Twin (60" x 72" to Queen (90" x 90"- or larger) is the plan for size. She'll be using high thread count material (not jo-ann's). Some will be traditional quilt blocks with Star Wars fabric (currently doing one with glow-in-the-dark SW prints), and some will be art-quilts. The more complexity in the project would increase the price, much like a basic install vs. a full crystal chamber revel. Prices would go from $200 for a basic twin to $400 for a basic queen, customs would go up from there. No, this is not Wal-mart or B.B.B. printed quilt in a bag, or Pottery Barn kiddy bedspreads. Yes, these will be high quality, last for decades quilts. Yes, she might do one-offs (because everyone wants that). Yes, this was her idea. Really, it was her idea.
Once some of my ideas get made, she might be open to custom orders, but at this point she just wants me to gauge the interest, so I figured I'd do so at IRA.

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.
