Finished - countdown and rocket

I have the countdown and rocket finished and hung!   My son's room as a stars and planets theme.

See the little ball above the hanging?  That's Pluto.  It's supposed to be on the other side of the house, but I wanted to keep all the planets in his room.  (Also, the box that the planets came in said on the outside "new and updated information for Pluto!" but I couldn't find it.  The leaflet still said it was a planet.)

The numbers were paper pieced as a tester for Meadow Mist designs.  You can find them here. The binding job on this was horrible.  I'm not sure what I did wrong, but you can see that there are big lumps in the corners. 

I mostly quilted it with meandering stars, but I also put in a few yellow accent stars.  There are also some red flames quilted in the flame section, but they're harder to see.

Here it is with his star quilt.

I wanted a rocket at the bottom of the countdown, but couldn't find one.  So I designed it myself.  If you're also interested in it, you can get it here.
