"I created this quilt while designing blocks for each of the twelve astrological constellations. This quilt uses two of the constellations, Cancer and Taurus, my husband's and my astrological signs. The stars that make up the constellations are 1/2"" squares, just tiny specks on the vast dark background. I used a variety of yellow solids for the stars to give a twinkling effect. The background is a mix of fabrics--quilting cotton, double gauze, linen--all in the same off-black color, but with different texture and sheen to give a subtle depth to the negative space."
