SARAH RUIZ - Rockets and Rotary Cutters
Hello! I’m Sarah Ruiz, a quilter and aerospace engineer living in Houston, Texas.
My creative and technical sides have always been intertwined, from drawing Disney characters and memorizing constellations as a kid to supporting the space station and dreaming up new quilts today.
Quilting perfectly combines my engineering and artistic mindsets, and I love the puzzle-solving required to turn an idea into reality. I design modern quilts that bring new twists to traditional patterns and feature bright colors, bold lines, and graphic shapes. My designs are easy to make, but pack a visual punch.
I am also an engineer at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, where I began as a college student in 1997. I’ve had several different jobs over the years and while they’ve all been fun, my most “glamorous” role was working as a flight controller for the space shuttle from 2005-2011. I’ve written a number of things about working in Mission Control and my specific roles there.
