Earth Views fabric   General Discussion

No, but the designs look like what I watch on afarTV on YouTube.  AfarTV has a live feed from the space station 24/7 as it goes around earth.  Pretty cool and now an astronaut has made it into fabric.  Very Cool.  On my list of "to buy" later.

Okay, Tuckyquilter, which Afar TV channel do you use to watch live feed from the space station?

I googled afartv and got something from a Hawaiian volcano, scrolled and got some other sites but none were live feeds from the space station.

Can you give us a URL, please?

Here it is.   Just copy and paste in your search window.

I watch all kinds of live stuff on YouTube.  Eagles, african watering holes, pandas  etc.  

I found Storm Chasers on this fellows channel:

He often gives the "TAKE COVER" way before the Natl Weather does.  Like with the Andover Tornado.  and Reed Timmer got live footage as I was watching him shoot it. Amazing

I love the Mysteries Channel too:

so if you want any other ways to waste valuable time... ask me... I probably have a "solution"... LOL

Those fabrics are beautiful!!  I have no suggestions but will be glad to see what someone else can come up with.  Whatever you come up with will be stunning.

Thank you, Lynn!  I'll let everyone know what I come up with. Pinterest is a source of great patterns to consider, and I've narrowed it down a bit.

I'll be watching to see what you come up with. (I love Pintrest).  I was just gifted a fat quarter bundle that was astronomy related but all in shades of browns and grays.  I know--doesn't sound pretty, but they are.  I thought it would be good for a masculine quilt--just need an idea.
