This is a commemorative banner that I made three years ago after my dear friend, Jesse, passed away. He was a massive Star Trek fan and planned his life around the Oregon Country Fair (look it up, it is an awesome and unique experience for sure). The peach panel represents the OCF as the peach is their logo. I had always planned to parade this at the fair but then society spiraled downward and the OCF has been canceled for the last two years. They plan on moving forward this year so I hold out hope that this banner will get to wave out there yet. I know that he would feel honored and perhaps a little embarrassed to have something like this made in his honor. He was extremely humble and kind,one of the gentlest souls you would ever meet. I don’t quilt often but once in a while quilting is the only way forward with an idea.
