To the Moon, Patricia!

"Fly Me to the Moon" is a SAQA Exhibit that was created a few years ago to honour the moon landing in 1969. 

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of that event.  Do you remember where you were at the time?  (I do!)

And on show at NASA now is the exhibit SAQA created, which includes this piece from Alberta member, Patricia Scott (below, centre):

Space Cowboy - Wally Schirra18" W x 30" L
Patricia Scott, Edmonton, AB
Pat shares this from her Artist's Statement for the piece:
This piece was inspired by reading about everything Wally had accomplished in his life.  What I wanted to highlight was the 3 missions he was on, and he fact he was one of the "Space Cowboys".  
Research Done: I looked on Wikipedia for information on Wally Schirra, as well as the different space ships he was on.
Techniques: Applique, free-motion quilting, machine embroidery.
Materials: Cotton, cotton batting. 

There is a link to the entire gallery of this exhibit which you might enjoy HERE.  Thanks for sharing, Patricia, and congratulations!
