I'm submitting this quilt, "Astronomy 101", for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. Machine pieced and hand quilted, it's a long full size blanket - the exact dimensions escape me at the moment.
It's so named because I came up with the quilting plan in, wait for it... Astronomy 101. Well that and all of the quilting is astronomy related. Each of the square blocks between the stars has been quilted with one of the eight phases of the moon.
The stars had been assembled prior to deciding the overall layout. This meant that each seam of the "moon" blocks had to be done in two parts.
