Astronaut's sewn-in-space star shines at quilt festival

Karen Nyberg was seeing stars.

A NASA astronaut, Nyberg wasn't in space looking out the windows onboard the International Space Station, nor was she outside looking up at the Houston night sky.

In fact, at that moment, Nyberg was inside the George R. Brown Convention Center attending the International Quilt Festival, the largest annual quilt show in the world. But the stars she was seeing were not even the 2,200 star-themed quilt blocks she, herself, had inspired others to sew.

No, the stars she remarked seeing were from the constant stream of camera flashes. Because here, at the center of the worldwide quilting community, she was the star.
