Outer Space quilts

I finally finished making and quilting these Outer Space quilts for my grandbabies.  They will share a room so my DIL wanted matching quilts.  I still have to put on the binding but that won't take too long.  I  need to  make a couple of pillow shams.
These quilts were a challenge to make but I am glad I went with  my original plan to make the fabric for the background.

My girlfriend and SIL were so nice to hold them up for me to take pictures.

I put one of them on my queen bed to show the size.  They are made for a regular double bed.
Loads of work but so worth it now that it is finished.


  1. Beautiful. Beautiful quilts! Lucky grandbabies!

    1. thanks Beth
      Putting on the binding is usually the step I try to avoid but I will be binding for the next couple of days!

  2. These are outstanding quilts. I hope your grandkids will appreciate (someday) that you designed them yourself. Great job.
