In my ongoing sewing with stash initiative, I am steadily clearing out long ago designed projects. For this one, the striped green and white fabric ended up next to the orange and I became obsessed with using them together. I initially had some thinner striped material pulled to go with them but, in the end, decided that was not the desired look after all!

2014 Navy Rocket Blast from Rocket Age by October Afternoon for Riley Blake Fabrics.

The white was in my stash and I am not sure from whence it came… it is a bright white.

I made the top using a stack and whack method and made it with a huge scale. Each piece of fabric was 1 yard. Then I slice and inserted the navy!

I used straight line quilting. I used my big 9″ ruler to mark the first lines with my trusty blue water soluble marker. That made about 9 sections going diagonally. I quilted those line and then went back and added lines 1″ apart with my walking foot bar guide. I went back again and bisected those lines using the edge of my walking foot as a guide. Starting from one corner I made 1/4″ sections and then began spacing those out.

So the quilt had 1/2″ quilted straight lines with 9 sections I original marked. I made 1/4″ lines in the entire first section. For the next section I made 1/4 lines every second 1/2″ area. Then for the following sections I made 1/4″ lines every third 1/2″, then every fourth, then every fifth, and then worked back down to every one in the 9th section.
