    ​Great story! To bad she can't take her machine. No gravity would make FMQ a breeze with no need to haul the quilt around. Of course the machine would need to be fastened down.

    First Quilter in Space!!!

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Neat to read about this ... and just as our Canuck Astronaut Chris Hadfield returned yesterday, having done a gazillion firsts in Space.

    I hope we can keep track of her efforts and see the results when she returns or when the quilt returns at a later date.

    Thanks for sharing! I have enough difficulty getting the everything to cooperate here on Earth...!! I hope they do a follow-up.
