I LOVE THIS!! I wonder if this could be done with an emboidery machine. Just use a thread colour that is a few shades lighte then the fabric.... I wish I had an emboidery machine that I could try. SIGH...

bwhahashahaha

I love that. I wonder if someone more gifted than I can take that and make a quilt out of it, out of space fabric.

But how do they get there without leaving footprints?

Does someone drop them out of a helicopter and pick them up when they are done?
Aliens don't ride in helicopters........LOL

Well, it's nice to see the aliens have become master quilt designers.
Their earlier work was .....clumsy and not very sophisticated.

An early sketch for a baby quilt:

IMHO, the newer works are much more refined and elegant.
free motion quilting.

Thank you renee75-excellent post!! I bookmarked it and will it will by my first after Christmas project-I'm thinking
black background and brights for the design. At least that's the plan for today-who knows how many times it will morph until I can get to it!!

One more thought-the green will have to be a Martian green I suppose! Pluto purple? Klingon coral? Moon maroon? :roll:
