I purchased this “cheater” quilt last October while vacationing/camping in Iowa. My daughter has 4 boys and I figured over the years each one would enjoy the space theme at some point. This quilt will be going home with Benny the Bear next week.
I wasn’t sure how I would quilt it so I thought learning to do circles would be a good place to start. Upside to this, perfect circles not required.
For the main quilting I stitched on the constellations and did a meandering star between them to get from one place to another.
I practiced straight lines and points on the sun:
Quilting tiny circles were more difficult than I thought they would be.
If I were to redo this quilt, I don’t think I would quilt on top of the constellations but around them. It is too late to make that change, little boys are not going to care, and I need to leave it be. It turned out to be a good learning quilt for making circles.
Another 2013 WIP completed. What is waiting for me now are larger projects, hand projects and those still in bins waiting to be cut.
What is waiting for you to do?
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
