Eclipse Inspired Art Quilt from Outerspace!

Eclipse inspired art quilt

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.  🙂
