The Vulcan Harp is the first pattern I found, when I searched for Star Trek pattern just over a year ago. It is this harp that got me going to design my own patterns. And what a journey it has been so far. I still need to add the strings, which will be embroidered into the pattern. I made two little mistakes, one of the dots is darker than the others. Oops.

V’ger, Star Trek the Motion picture is today’s brand new pattern for our Star Trek pattern series.  “On its journey back, it amassed so much knowledge, it achieved consciousness itself. It became a living thing.“ – James T. Kirk V’ger appeared in Star Trek the Motion Picture and is the remnant of an unmanned space probe called Voyager 6. It en-massed a tremendous energy cloud around V’ger measured as equivalent in size to Earth’s orbit. LLAP Vanda Chittenden   Save SaveRead More →
