Make a colourful and dramatic quilt for the budding astronaut in your family using Gillian Grimmett's quilt pattern. Combine appliquéd rockets, spaceship, planets and stars with a scrappy patchwork border for a quilt that's out of this world.
Full materials list included in instructions
Detailed step-by-step instructions illustrated with close-up photographs and diagrams take you through each stage of this project from tracing and cutting the appliqué shapes, fusing and stitching them in place and adding the borders through to free-motion quilting, and binding
All appliqué shapes are provided full-size, ready to trace and reversed for use with fusible web
Instructions are for raw-edge fusible-web appliqué stitched by machine, but they can be readily adapted to suit the appliqué method of your choice
Only small pieces of fabrics are needed for the patchwork and appliqué, so it' the perfect stash buster
The appliqué shapes lend themselves to use on a variety of other projects - such as a matching pillowcase, cushion, wallhanging or t-shirt
