If you follow me on Flickr, you may have already seen the whole Space Quilt, but I wanted to share the quilt with everyone in its entirety.
The blocks for this quilt were generously made by the incredibly talented ladies of the Trust Circle for Do. Good Stitches. I feel so blessed to count myself as part of this group. I asked them to each make a star block and one related space block. We had paper pieced blocks, appliqued blocks, and even embroidered blocks. The talent of these ladies just blows me away.
Our circle for Do Good Stitches supports children in foster care. To find my child I got in touch with my favorite foster mom and friend, Kristy from Hopeful Threads, she provided me with all kinds of fun information on the boy that I would be donating the quilt too. He loves space, his favorite colors are red, blue and black. I’m pretty sure we hit the nail on the head! From the pictures I received I would say that we got it just right. I can’t show you any of the pictures that show his face, I want to help protect his anonymity, but I do have one super special picture to share.
I have it on good authority from Kristy that the quilt is well loved!
