A 9-Patch: SunMoonStars & Constellations

My 9-patch is slowly blooming with suns, moons and just a few stars.  Stars have always been tricky for me.  I usually cheat and make the Jewish star with two triangles.  But here, for the 9-patch, no cheating.  A star made with bits and pieces.  And a growing constellation.

Patching together a slow-stitched journey to the Universe, I thought about Jude Hill’s idea of holes (Spirit Cloth)….looking through cloth to find stars.  I had a difficult time finding textiles in my house with holes.  But finally, a vintage, much-loved Huck towel with a few holes.  Made-on-purpose holes and a few not.  Thinking of adding to SunMoonStars as Constellations.  Maybe.  That means cutting the towel.  Maybe next time.
