I completed the quilt top for Space Age Tumbling Blocks on Tuesday morning, and I love how similar the concept image created in EQ5 is to the actual quilt top. Including fabric prep, the quilt top took me 9.5 hours to get to this point, and pre-quilting, it measures 62″ across by 75″ down.
The backing went together very quickly (only a half hour of sewing and pressing) due to the fact that I pieced together 4 yards of the Rocket Age Ad fabric. An hour of basting work later, and this quilt is ready for some free motion quilting!
I needed to practice drawing a rocket pattern for a while before I sat down and started quilting. I am going to “hide” 3 of these rockets across the quilt top and then fill in the space with swirls. This quilt has been such a joy to work on!
