About Blast Off!
My original Outer Space Adventure quilt was designed as a crib quilt for my niece’s baby, Ethan. His mom & dad were planning an outer space themed nursery, and asked me to design a quilt and coordinating needlepoint canvases as the focal points in the room. The full-size version Blast Off! was a special request from a quilter in Texas, who wanted to make the larger size for her grandson’s room.
The outer space theme begins with an applique center panel. A rocket blasts off and makes its way through deep blue space, past stars and colorful planets. Applique blocks with cute astronauts and silly aliens mix with patchwork “star” blocks to create the border. Red sashing and a bright geometric print complete the quilt design. This design is modern, bright, and fun!
