My Quip – Astro-Physics – New Wall-Hanging Quilt Begins

Good Day,

Our journey into quilt making is ever an exciting one. And this is an introduction to the world of paper-piecing, points, curves, and little-bitty pieces of cut fabric where the seam allowances alone can swallow up the size-factors.

This piece is one of the eleven stars that you will encounter on your journey to Astro Physics

We have ventured into the outer dimensions of Jacqueline de Jonge. Andy most recently attended a two-day session with Jacqueline to learn the areas of her construction techniques. Our challenge is her design Fly Away.

Our fabric choices are batiks covering a tangible spectrum of rainbow colors. The first name of this endeavor is Astro-Physics. There are, what appears to be thousands of pieces ranging in colors and are all extracted from 29 different fabrics.

Astro-Physics will take some time. I will be posting the progression of the construction and present to you, over time, its creation and production.

We are always looking for new designs and quilt challenges. If you are interested in commissioning your quilt please contact us.

Check out or newly posted Twisted Basket and our currently available quilts at Quilts SB Etsy.

Also check out my new experimental format of my Blog, Quilts SB Test. Certainly would appreciate your feedback.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please check our Quilts SB Etsy shop.

If you have any questions and/or comments please feel free to get in touch with me via email.


Jim and Andy
