About This Tutorial

Finished Size: 82" x 99"

Jenny Doan is "quilting the cosmos" with Dresden-plate stars on a vast ombre background. She's using Orbital Sunrise batiks by astronaut-quilter Karen Nyberg. (This collection is inspired by Earth's landscapes as seen from the International Space Station!) The Milky Way quilt is designed for creativity. Make it your own with two-color Dresdens in any size; this is astronomical applique at its best!
