Stars, planets, meteor showers, and blue batiks make up this art quilt made by Loretta Zortman.
“She’s got the whoOOOLLLe world…in her hands!…”—-gotta admit, I sang that song a few times while making this fun, space-inspired throw. Gathering all my universe themed fabrics, all the various stars and skies, the many planet fabrics, and even black/blue swirly batiks was the easy part! I had no real plan or block for this project, initially. So it was a Hot Mess for the first half—which left me feeling rather confused and frustrated. But somewhere in there, I turned the corner—and it started taking on shape. By the time the top was complete, I loved it. It was quilted it with stars around the border, some crazy-spirals, some shooting lines that are not too controlled—since this IS outerspace! Just realized these pics are pre-quilting, oops! LOL! I’m inspired to continue digging into my stash of fabrics to stretch my creative juices. 🙂

The Polar Vortex may be outside, but inside my studio when I’m quilting it feels like Tahiti!
Tasty tropicals, fabulous florals, and a rainbow of batiks are keeping me warm while I work on a very colorful project.
Enjoy your day!
