“The project is a “space elevator” and some experts now believe that the concept is well within the bounds of possibility–maybe within our lifetime.” This quote is from CNN.com/europe
Sometimes we support our family members as best as we can. My brother-in-law Bert and my son Aaron are on the National Space Society team to build a space elevator. You can read more about this at http://www.nssspaceelevator.org/
My sister Dawn and I decided that we would help the team out by making this Space Quilt. There are many shades of grey in this quilt to give it depth. Caryl Bryer-Fallert’s gradation fabric was perfect for one of the colorful borders. The outside wide border gave paper-piecing a new meaning. It took me over 4 hours to complete one side of the border. Dawn painstakingly paper-pieced each of the moons and stars and then appliqued them to the quilt. I cannot begin to determine how many different fabrics and how many hours went into the designing and sewing of this quilt. Debbie McMurray took machine quilting to a whole new level on this quilt. Thank you Debbie!
