More Fabric Has Arrived!
Earth Views by Karen Nyberg
for Robert Kaufman Fabrics

Karen Nyberg, who demonstrated her passion for the textile arts while living on board the International Space Station, has partnered with Robert Kaufman Fabrics to introduce a line of organic cotton prints. Nyberg's "Earth Views" collection is based on the landscapes she captured while orbiting Earth 2,656 times. In designing the Earth Views collection, Nyberg selected photos that she thought would be a good representation of the various textures on Earth, while also capturing the distinct ecosystems that make up the planet. Among the 13 different prints (each available in several colors) are squares based on Nyberg's photos of the Andes Mountains in Chile, the Grand Canyon in the U.S., the blue waters off the coast of the Bahamas and the Sahara Desert in Egypt.
Her new "Challenge Star Quilt" pattern borrows its design from the quilts she encouraged others to create, beginning with a star that she sewed while on the space station in 2013. In response, NASA received 2,400 quilt squares from around the world, which were then sewn together to create 28 king-sized quilts.
