I'm really looking forward to seeing the full display of 15 quilts! I've seen most of them individually at "show and tell". I think as a group, the display is going to be amazing! Everyone has done a fabulous job on their quilt and it's so fun to see how different, yet how great, they are!
I made this one as my contribution to the submission. I could have used my original one but I entered it in last year's show and I have a personal rule to never put the same quilt in twice. Also, it gave me a chance to test my own pattern. I like my first one best, but this one is OK. I made it from stash - of course.
One very exciting note about Galaxy: Terry Rowland, also in our Long Arm Group, entered her Galaxy quilt into the Red Deer quilt show back at the beginning of April and it won "Best in Show"! I think I'm as excited about that as she is! Congratulations, once again, Terry (aka T-Row Studios).
I don't have too much to say about the quilting on this except that I struggled to come up with an idea for the background because the print is so busy. I woke up one morning with an epiphany! It's a galaxy! Stars! So I quilted in a bunch of stars in yellow and blue. The thread is Fabulux - the neon yellow and blue. I went over each line three times to pump up the outlines so they are visible above the busy background.
