While on board the International Space Station, Nyberg created a star-themed quilt block that will be returning to earth with her. Her block will be combined with other blocks submitted by quilters to create a quilt that will be displayed at the 2014 International Quilt Festival in Houston. (See a video of Nyberg--with her block--on board the ISS!)
How can you be a part of this exciting project? Submit your own star-themed block!
Create a star-themed 9.5”-square unfinished block (so that when quilted, it will be a 9” finished block).
The theme should be any variation on a star. We welcome all types—traditional, modern, and artsy variations. Limit one block per person.
Use any color scheme and techniques you would like, but please do not use any embellishments.
Sign your unfinished block on the font with a permanent marker. Please include your name and your location.
Mail your block to us at the address below by August 1, 2014.
