Why Aliens Wearing Shades?

Sometimes naming a quilt is the hardest part of making it – and sometimes the name just pops out. This one got two names, a “proper” name and a more off-the-cuff, fun name!

The main appliqué shape is a simple geometric shape called the Vesica Piscis. This is the intersection created when two same sized circles overlap, with the center of one circle on the circumference of the other circle.

Vesica Piscis

Did you know that an American football is a 3D vesica piscis? How about an Aliens Wearing Shades table runner in your team’s colors for football season or the Super Bowl?

That’s where the “proper” name came from, so what about “Aliens Wearing Shades“?

When I was creating the table runner that is part of this collection, a friend of mine was helping. She stood looking at it from the side and started laughing. Of course I had to ask what she was laughing at.

“It looks just like a ghost… one wearing sunglasses!” is what she said.

So now I had to look at it from the side and I saw just what she saw.

“Maybe it’s an alien” she said. “Wearing shades!”

So there you have it … “Aliens Wearing Shades aka The Vesica Piscis Collection
