What is the story behind your panel?
“I always loved the idea of going into space. My sister Mary and I would watch every space show on TV and dream about going where no “woman” has gone before! When I moved to Florida we visited the Kennedy Space Center many times and have seen many joyous Space Shuttles rising exhaust trails and then the worst explosion of all. But there was no stopping them, they keep going further and accompishing greater achievments.
When I saw the advertisement to make the world’s largest collaborative quilt to cover the Saturn V Space Rocket I was in, I got the sponsorship from my quilt guild, the Coral Springs Quilters, and I started dreaming of a design. I love to look at the night sky’s twinkling stars so my quilt panel was designed with several different sized stars and machine quilted with metallic hologram to make them appear to be twinkling from far away.
