Jimmy McBride's "The Black Eye Galaxy" measures 45 inches by 60 inches and sells for $2,000. Most of McBride's space quilts are for kids, be we think adults would like them, too. Jimmy McBride

On these chilly fall days I like to combat my crippling seasonal depression curled up in a blanket with a grilled cheese sandwich, soup, and some strong liquor. If only my blanket was as nice as these space-inspired quilts.

Designed by artist Jimmy McBride, the quilts draw inspiration from both astronomy and sci-fi movies--a mixture of real science and imagination. Plus they look really warm.

If you happen to be in the New York area, you can see the quilt pictured above at the Made in New York: City Quilting exhibition through November 14. Click on the gallery below to see more of McBride's spacey creations.
