Astronomer's Daughter by Brigit Dermott was inspired by the "beauty of planetary rings and the bold optimism of NASA's graphics". Subtle moons and stars ringed with quilting designs highlight the 1960's space age design.

Astronomer's Daughter won 2nd Place Modern Traditionalism at QuiltCon 2019.

Wow, love the quilt. Can't believe you managed all those thread colour changes in the quilting. Great work, and great patience

I usually do not care for modern quilts, but I liked this, possibly because it has some traditional aspects. The quilting nicely compliments the piece.
