And you thought you had it tough. Astronaut Karen Nyberg is sewing a quilt block during her time on the International Space Station. She talks a bit about some of the challenges of quilting in space, in this clip. http://www.space.com/23436-space-quilt-astronaut-karen-nyberg.html. Things I never would have thought of - like how do you keep your fabric flat and straight for cutting, with no gravity. And how do you keep all your tools, and scraps, and thread bits corralled - I think I'd be in really big trouble in space, since I can never seem to put things away as I use them.
She's also inviting all quilters to make blocks to join hers in a quilt for the 40th annual International Quilt Festival in Houston next year. Maybe it's time to plan a trip to the quilt show.
