Let's take a closer look!
I couldn't resist this map of the solar system. And look! It even recognizes Pluto! Bonus.
In other news, I'm not a Trekkie. Not at all; why do you ask?
The first store I visited was in New York City and they had some city specific fabrics. A good number of them were too flashy for me, but this piece caught my eye. The background is a sepia map of the streets covered with the name tiles from subway stops. And I won it by checking the website before going, because there weren't any bolts on the floor when I was there.
In addition, I've been making some progress on my niece's wall hanging. Not as much as I need to be making, but progress nonetheless.
All four sets of trees have been finished. Each of the four blocks also has a sun, and one block has the entire sky quilted. The sun was quilted with a doubled strand of cotton thread in the hopes that it would stand out. I'm not sure that was entirely successful, and it was a pain in the rear to work with.
