Yes! A space quilt! A while back, the designer for Etsy’s amazing space themed conference room got in touch. Would I like to make a space quilt to be hung in the room? Needless to say, this was a daunting task. But I love a challenge so I took it on.
How to make a quilt that is a glimpse of “space” (as in outer space – this was not a theoretical space…it had to be outer space) yet also keep my aesthetic? It was no easy task!
Think I managed ok? Stars or spaceships?? It’s up to you! I was thinking stars (you know – like streaking by ’cause you’re at warp speed, right??) but my husband though spaceships so I figured that’s part of the idea – interpret it as you’d like.
And white binding! Not something I’ve otherwise done but I thought it worked well to frame the dark blues and blacks… I used a lot of Quilters Linen in this. Thought that it was nice for add texture but not a patterned fabric.
There’s more photos of the finished conference room here!
