Astronomy Quilts

'Home Astronomy" has travelled more than any of my quilts so far. It spent a year at the Mt. Lick Observatory Visitor Center (thanks to an invitation from Remington Stone, the Director of the Observatory); and it was also an invited special exhibit at the International Quilt Show in Houston, in 2006.

'What the Hubble Saw" has also done some travelling as part of the International Quilt Show/Houston 2007's special travelling exhibit, 'The Skies the Limit.'
