Because all their fabric has such a gorgeously soft feel, we decided to use only Prints Charming. Luckily they have a white-on-white stripe and good range in the right colours, including the new blue spokes. It took a while to track down all we wanted, including enough of the rockets stripes for the backing. This stuff is popular!
The request was simple, a little retro, and snuggly. So the piecing was nice and easy - apart from these curves, and even they went well - though I plan to get myself one of the curved piecing feet for my new machine (not for me, honestly!) at the Quilt Show in November.
One of my original designs had these circles in blue and white, and looking rather like BMW badges. We ended up altering the design a little, but maybe I'll do something with the blue and white circles for in the car!
To keep it snuggly, I quilted it fairly lightly; simple swirls through the snail-trail blocks to enhance the wave effect,
some stabilising in-the-ditch across a few strips and random loopy rectangles across the coordinate print
