Finally I have another finished project to post!  This is the quilt I made for my little boy/future astronaut.  I had vowed not to start anything new before this was done, and I stuck to it.  To my regret.  Anyway, here she is, a mixtape quilt (pattern from oh fransson) using space themed fabrics (many from the Rocket Scientist collection from Keri Beyer.)



I pieced the back from some grey fabric that was originally meant for the sashing before I rejected it, and some leftovers from piecing the top.



I love the binding, it is a striped red fabric that my son picked out.



And one more, just 'cause I'm proud.



This is the largest quilt I've made to date, a BIG twin at 74x93 inches.  Yikes.

Anyway, thanks for looking.  Bye!
