My Very Educated Mother
Just Said Uh-Oh, No Pluto
15" x 15.5"   NFS

 

Can you name all eight planets (and one dwarf planet)? Use the mnemonic device in the title to help. The planets are made with hand-dyed fabric and orbit around a fabric mosaic sun. The orbits are hand-spun yarn couched to a navy blue batik fabric. The asteroid belt is made by micro-stippling quilting with a blue thread. 36 clear glass bead stars twinkle in the four outside corners as a couched yarn comet streaks across the right side. Glass beads hold together the four quadrants and also attach it to the hanging rod which will hang the quilt on a single nail.
