Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry 1


This is my first entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I am entering it into the "Modern Quilts" category. You can go vote over here

This was a donation quilt for Girls Incorporated of San Antonio, a national organization that "Inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold." They also offer an amazing summer camp for girls that focuses on STEM subjects. As a woman in the STEM field (I teach astronomy labs and physical science teacher prep classes), this is something I vehemently support! Hence, volunteering to donate a quilt.

Anyways, here is the quilt in question. I'm calling it "Astronomical Twilight." It is 48" x 60" in size, so decent throw/lap quilt sized. The original post about the big finish is over here.

And here is a shot of the backing.
