Q138 – Cosmo’s Moon 2.5 – Quilt and Wall-Hanging

Good Day,

Andy and I would like to introduce you to our 138th quilt, and wall-hanging, Cosmo's Moon 2.5.

Cosmo's Moon 2.5
Jim Smith Andy Brunhammer - Sep 2015

This past summer Andy and were invited by Susanne Jones to consider the possibility of submitting entries to the Fly Me to the Moon: An Art Quilt Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Man’s Walk on the Moon. Cosmo's Moon 2.5 is one of our three entries.

The Fly Me to the Moon project is a multi-faceted juried exhibition. All-things-being-equal the exhibit will be in museums and galleries and NASA facilities. The majority of the participants are from the United States. International participants are from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom. Pieces selected will travel for the next four years.

All three of Andy's and my quilt wall-hangings - Betwixt and Between; Cosmo's Moon 2.5; and Apollo 1, The Beginning have been juried and accepted as a part of the Fly Me To The Moon project and journey.

Our Cosmo's Moon 2.5 was inspired by our own original quilt Cosmo's Moon.
