    The attic window would be the perfect way to frame these blocks.

That is the size I need for the quilt I want to do. I will also have some other blocks too.
    Someone out there has already done one with the same pannel and it is beautiful.

    Try http://www.bobrow.net/kimberly/Quilt...xy/index2.html

    In case the link does not open, do a search for "David's Galaxy" as Attic Windows.

    Hope you like the idea... It should be easy enough to do.
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!

    I love framing special blocks in different ways, there are so many choices. Using them as centers for stars is a great way in this space fabric, I would think. Here are a couple photos with things I've done Name:  center  bird section complete.jpg

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Borders would be easy, then quilt it with a star pattern. I have never seen the glow in the dark thread in person, but I imagine that would look really neat in this particular quilt. You could also turn the panel blocks on point inside your blocks or turn the entire finished blocks on point. No pun intended, but the skies the limit! LOL
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    I like the idea of the attic window. Or the picture frame one.

    I have this panel. It's in my "to do" pile. It's amazing how much faster that pile grows than my "Done" pile!

    I'm sure you will get great ideas on this board. I used the same fabric to make a wall hanging for my grandchildren who love anything about space!

    This is obviously a very popular panel. I used it to make my 9 year old grandson one too! Here's mine.

    How about a centre circle making it. Reverse applique method.like looking through a porthole.
    Finished is better than a UFO
