Under a patchwork moon

Just another 22″ patchwork circle, using the same freezer paper templates as the yellow/gold one.

It’s such a great way to use tiny scraps of fabric; a gathering together of little lost souls.

Arlee, do you see some little pieces of your eco-dyed cotton here?

This circle is made mostly from hand-dyed cotton fabrics, with a few commercial prints  and some silks added in for a little sheen here and there.

I’m also thinking about my American friends who may have been affected by the tornadoes that we saw on the news here. Wishing you all a peaceful weekend.

    aw i love what you’ve done with arlee’s fabrics.

    i really need to finish my top that has pieces of hers too.

    this is a beautiful piece
    and oddly enough
    yesterday after it all cleared
    we had the most fantastic sky
    in an eerie way

    Those little souls are no longer lost…they’re happy in a full moon crowd.

    I don’t know why, K, but it fills me with a whole lot of contentment to see all this quiet stitching going on over here….
    Sorry to have been away so long ~ hope life is good for you (the stitching obviously is!)

    that looks beautiful, and i enlarged one pic to see your neat, tiny hand stitches – that was a gift in itself.

  10. Your blog is amazing. How do you stitch this beautifully neat? The freezer paper – which way up do you put it?? sorry to be a bit dim!

    Your title for this piece is perfect. It’s so tranquil and calming – and of course, beautifully pieced.
