The Roller Derby Quilt is a collaborative art quilt made by roller derby skaters, refs, volunteers, and fans around the world. The goal is to get squares representing individuals and teams from every league worldwide. So far there are over 100 squares!
When not crushing my opponents under my toe stops, I'm sewing ruffles onto everything I own, oiling my rusty knees, blocking for the Nutcrackers, or collecting quilt squares from skaters, refs, and leagues around the world.
It's been a while since I've gotten a square from outside my own league, so yesterday was an exciting mail day. Canadian Crusher, of the Bakersfield Diamond Divas, sent me this lovely note and this even lovelier square:
She contacted me about the quilt a week ago and I already have it in my hot little hands. Fantastic turn-around time, Crusher!
