|Ellen Harding Baker’s “Solar System Quilt” (Photo: Wikimedia Commons), work in public domain.|
This quilt measures 89" x 176". The background is wool. She used embroidery and applique to create the planets and stars.
Isn't it stunning, striking, phenomenal? How did she create it? Where did she lay out the fabric? I wish I could have seen this work in progress.
You can learn more about the Ellen Harding Baker and her quilt at My Modern Met, at Colossal, and at Wikipedia.
Can you imagine creating such a large quilt?!
