Quilt Festival in Houston USA

Like a lot of my online quilting group members, we made an Astronomical Star block and sent them over to the USA as part of a worldwide effort which began by NASA Astronaut Karen Nyberg who made her Star block while in space.

It all started when I saw a you tube video of Karen in a space capsule making her own Star quilt block which I posted on my online quilt group website, “Have just watched the most ‘out of this world’ quilter talking about her space on you tube….”

The quilt blocks have now been put together into many quilts and have been on show in Houston USA at The International Quilt Festival.

Here’s my block  in one of the many quilts –

About MT-Crafty Lady

I love teaching craft skills and enjoy the opportunity to combine this with writing. Since 2008 I've been a member of a great online community of quilters and crafters. Over the past couple of years I've contributed to a popular quilting magazine and loved seeing my projects in print, and this keeps me busy. Opportunities to quilt each day is a quilter's dream and I feel very lucky to be able to do this....Happy lady.
