Intergalactic Planetary

fairly resent discovery for me, Jimmy Mcbride is a quilter. He is a manly quilter. I have a lot of admiration and have been following his last few quilts with great interest. The quilts come with dialog, there is a story behind them. Documentation of scenes seen out the windows of an Intergalactic Transporter. I recommend checking out his website for a proper explanation. Besides; really how often does one get to say that, Intergalactic. Short story is he quilts stars, galaxies, real photos of celestial bodies from Hubble.

My fav is the blog that documents the process, being a process driven girl myself. The pics of the cut out are what really get me though, the stacks on interconnecting shapes in a variety of colored plaid. He claims the plaid helps to create the "wispy effect" needed to create the gaseous galactic formations. I can't wait to see the finished results!

He also has an Etsy store: Stellar Quilts. Just remember, my birthday isn't until December so you have lots of time to save up for the M64 quilt.

I'm just sayin'.
