Around the World in 20 Quilts Challenge

Today is the day we unveil our Stellar creations from the AW20Q challenge. The challenge this time was to make an A4 size quilt and the theme was 'Stellar.' I didn't know the word could have so many meanings.

I had a couple of false starts and finally decided to try needle felting. I've used black felt for the background and a mixture of wool, mohair, silk and angelina fibres to make my cosmos.

I have also used silver metallic thread.


Seed beads of various colours were used to represent stars or particles of cosmic dust.


The quilting is in a circular direction to signify the spinning cosmos. I used raw edge stitching to finish the quilt.
