Windows Into Space
Jean chose the classic “Attic Window” setting to showcase this beautiful outer space fabric and turn it into a quilt for her grandson. Right now is a great time to be watching the night sky. Did you catch a glimpse of comet NEOWISE? We spent two evenings out watching it, and in addition we saw Jupiter and Saturn rise and also a couple of shooting stars. Speaking of shooting stars, the Perseid meteor shower is just a few days past its peak and should still be visible this weekend. But back to Jean’s quilt… we chose a pantograph with the fitting name “Starry Night”. I just did a tiny edit. In the original design the moon has a face contour, with a nose and open mouth which looks cute on a baby quilt but wasn’t really suitable for Jean’s project, so I changed this part into a curve and turned it into a simple crescent moon.
