Wonky Star Space Quilt

Hi all,

The finish along for this quarter is wrapping up and I will do a wrap up post but I thought this quilt deserved a post all of its own!

Most of the blocks in this quilt were made by the girls in the Bee In Oz group that happened back in 2011, I filled it out with a few blocks of my own and the screen printed rocket.

The rocket is one that I designed and screen printed with the direction of my sister in law. The FMQ around the rocket is what has kept this baby in the cupboard all year, very sad I know.

This is one of my fav blocks, I think there is a tutorial for it on the net somewhere. It is a 12” block so those little stars are just that, little!

Another fav is this star in a star block. The little astronaut guy is so cute and that fabric is my fav space fabric! One of those lucky finds, I have never seen it again but fortunately I got enough for the border.

The back incorporates some left over fabric and the signature squares that I asked the girls to sign for me.

It really makes the quilt that much more special!

Here it is on my littlest boys bed, where it was going to stay but apparently it is scary….so it has found a home on my oldest boys bed!

You "littlest" makes me laugh! How can a quilt be scary? Too funny ;)! But I think the quilt is fantastic, I love everything about it; the colours, the pattern, the screen printed rocket as well as the back. Well done! Can't wait to see what else you have finished.
