Keepsake Quilting ™ – Outer Space Kit
24” x 44” Panel

Quilt Pattern - Popcorn

Made for Grandson #3

Grandson #3 loves Astronomy – so when I saw the panel in the Keepsake Quilting ™ catalog –
I knew I had to make it for him.

The panel had 15 terrific photos of various space related things –
including the Moon – Astronauts – the Space Shuttle – and Saturn.
I used EQ6 ® to plan the sashing strips that were needed to make the quilt a decent size.


When Grandson #3 saw the quilt on the design wall – his first words were –

“Where’s the other half of Saturn??”


Boys!! – Gotta luv ‘em!!

  1. Kids say the darnest things. But it's because they see so much!!! They are more observant than adults give them credit for! Love that quilt and I have G-son that is into astronomy and anything science right now, too. he' probably say the same thing :-)

  2. You have done a wonderful job on the quilt. I had to laugh @ your grandson's comment....They are very literal when they are young, aren't they?

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
