SuperNova Friendship swap - Finish ALYoF

I can't help it ...this quilt makes me smile!  My swap partner Jenn Jennifer under the Juniper Tree (her post on her version is up so go check it out) and I finished our quilts. We made them big and bright and scrappy and they are finished. Did I say that already??? Both of us finished! Okay, enough.


The swap was the brainchild of Stephanie from Late Night Quilter and Sandra from One Million Stitches. The challenge swap ends Feb 14 and Lee Heinrich herself from Freshly PIeced and the designer of the SuperNova will be the judge.

Now more pics:

There is a little up close view of the straight line grid quilting using aurifil in 2600 again!

Lastly I leave you with this picture (dig the sun going down sprinkling light on the blocks!!!) of my SuperNova with a factory in the back ground and little note from the NASA website as to
 "What is a SuperNova"? A supernova is the explosion of a star. It is the largest explosion that takes place in space

"Where do SuperNovas take place"? Supernovas are often seen in other galaxies. But supernovas are difficult to see in our own Milky Way galaxy because dust blocks our view. In 1604, Johannes Kepler discovered the last observed supernova in the Milky Way. NASA’s Chandra telescope discovered the remains of a more recent supernova. It exploded in the Milky Way more than a hundred years ago.

Learn something new everyday! :) I will be linking up with the flickr group for the SuperNova Swap Finishes soon.

Oh, I am blown away! Your SuperNova quilt is simply gorgeous, Kris. I love how the dark background makes the rainbow of colours shine. And the quilting is such a compliment to the design. The backing is as fun as the front! What a fabulous finish!

Fabulous especially with that choice of gray for the background - I used a much lighter one on mine during the original QAL with Lee. Fun photo shoot and bit of facts to end your post with. Happy Stitching
Jayne said…
