Space X Rocket Ship Quilt

I received a request for a custom quilt for the sweetest little boy. He was transitioning from his crib to a big boy bed! His parents are big Space X fans. When they request a rocket ship quilt, I knew I had to design a quilt around the Falcon Heavy rocket.

Around the same time that I designed this modern quilt, Space X was getting ready to launch three astronauts into space: Crew-2! (Hi, female astronaut Megan MacArthur! You’ve got big fans here at Casey Sheila Quilts).

Although designing a quilt is certainly not the same as designing a rocket, there was quite a bit of math for this full size space quilt.

Handmade quilts are all about the details. I loved the little NASA astronaut fabric so we added a few pieces of that fabric onto the rocket. I machine stitched the child's name. And I made sure we had some fire power to blast the rocket ship to the international space station. I can’t wait to see all the adventures and fun dreams that this boy has with this quilt.

Space fabric with deep blues and star constellations were a natural choice for the back of the quilt. We used dark blue thread to quilt all three layers together.

As with all of my quilts, I hand stitched the binding. I make sure that all of my products are machine washable. Momma has enough on her plate and kid’s bedding is sure to get messy (potty training, I see you). Currently accepting custom quilt orders, send an email to casey@caseysheilaquilts.com to get started designing your dream quilt today.
