Well, something that I made is in Houston. But, it’s not exactly a quilt. More of a little quilt. OK, a quilt block. I made a quilt block and sent it to the Star Block Challenge organized by astronaut Karen Nyberg, and it got sewn into a quilt which is hanging up in Houston. I blogged about the block I made before I sent it off, but here’s a photo as a reminder.
It looks like I was in good company, since a lot of people used their space print fabrics to make star blocks. Rather than make the blocks into one big quilt, the blocks were made into 28(!!!) quilts of a more manageable size. Here’s one of the quilts with Nyberg’s block right in the center.
My block didn’t end up on the same quilt as Nyberg’s block, but that’s OK. I would have loved that, of course, but my block got a nice spot another quilt. Here’s what that looked like.
It’s so fun to look at all the blocks and see what everyone else has done.You can read more about some of the individual blocks that were submitted here. And we can all pat ourselves on the back, since we have work that is hanging up in Houston. Perhaps one day we can get something just a bit bigger hanging up on those walls, but for today this will do nicely. Here’s a close up of the block in its natural environment.
