In A Galaxy Far, Far Away...



This is my Fast Fridays Quilt Challenge #37 for October. It has really been a boost to me to have a deadline. The challenge was " Outer Space". I was surprised how difficult it was to make nice round planets....I enjoyed the design and composition aspects and of course the embellishments.
This quilt has Swavarski crystals and hand beading. It is approx. 18" by 24". The back ground fabric is a hand-dyed batik. I also used some of my thread blending techniques learned in my recent Carol Shinn class in the East Bay.
