Be still my geeky heart. These quilts by Jimmy McBride are awesome. And, um, expensive. But that’s because they’re awesome and hand-quilting takes a lot of time, patience and skill. If being a blogger who talks a little too often about space was a more lucrative career choice, I’d be a blogger who talks a little too often about space while owning a badass quilted rendition of Phobos (above, swoon). If any of you Geeks are feeling super-generous, we’ll gladly accept gifts from the stellarquilts Etsy shop, aka the Intergalactic Transport Blackmarket, where you can pick up one or all of these incredible quilted works.
If you’re interested in McBride’s creative process (and of course you are), check out his blog, where he posts progress shots, technique how-tos, and talks about pickles a lot.
