Can you name
all eight planets (and one dwarf planet)? Use the mnemonic
device in the title to help. The planets are made with hand-dyed
fabric and orbit around a fabric mosaic sun. The orbits are
hand-spun yarn couched to a navy blue batik fabric. The asteroid
belt is made by micro-stippling quilting with a blue thread. 36
clear glass bead stars twinkle in the four outside corners as a
couched yarn comet streaks across the right side. Glass beads
hold together the four quadrants and also attach it to the
hanging rod which will hang the quilt on a single nail.
