NAVY CONSTELLATION QUILT
This Constellation Quilt can be used as a learning tool, a functional art object and a modern heirloom. Like other quilt projects at Haptic Lab, the Constellation Quilt is meant to be passed on from generation to generation. The embroidered gold stars depict the October night sky around the 40th parallel in the Northern Hemisphere and feature constellations like the Big and Little Dipper, Gemini, Orion, Leo, and Taurus; French knots are used to render the Milky Way as a tactile field that crosses the quilt design in a sweeping diagonal. Each quilt is handmade, and uses 100% cotton fabric.
