Found this Kaufmann fabric online while looking for something else...thought it would be perfect for my BIL who has a telescope and loves astronomy/space. I really like the way it turned out. No pattern, just made it up as I went along (although I admit I've seen a couple similar layouts on the board that did provide some inspiration).

As I'm not that good at FMQ yet, I did a wavy line across the major intersections, and scattered some tiny stars (various kinds) throughout the blocks.

Also a walker pocket for my MIL, and some cross-stitched bookmarks for both of them.

The front

The back

tiny stars for the border and scattered in the blocks

the colourful fabric is gorgeous

Mutti's walker pocket (already stuffed with some goodies). The reverse side has a single larger pocket.

The flowered fabric in the walker bag is from a bunch that she gave me for my 'stash'.
