Cosmic Quilt Inspiration

I love the idea of space travel.  Love it.  Along with many others, I watched breathlessly in December as Major Tim Peake and his co-astronauts launched from Kazakhstan on their way to the ISS, and cheered when they finally docked safely.  It’s fair to say that Britain’s gone a bit space nuts since then, and I heartily approve!  Well travelled though I am, blasting into space is the kind of trip that I personally am extremely unlikely to ever take (my feeble attempts to play Kerbal Space Program don’t quite count!), but I can dream!  And to aid in such dreams, NASA/JPL have just released 14 fabulous Space Tourism posters that are free to download and print:

Gloriously retro-futuristic, bold designs – what’s not to love?  😀  My favourites are the Grand Tour and Mars posters, and I could quite easily find myself wanting to do a quilt inspired by any one of these posters.  Check ’em out!

  1. I am so in love with these prints!! I’ve been playing with vintage travel poster inspired quilts, and I think I might have to add these to the mix. So phenomenal!

    1. They’re just fab, aren’t they? 😀 I’ve downloaded them all for hoarding and cooing purposes and I’d buy a ticket for any of those trips in a second, lol! Looking forward to seeing what you’ve been up to with your poster-inspired quilts. 🙂
