A quilt

I started this last week, having woken up one morning with the title already in place. The patchwork moon is 15″ in diameter and is cut from various hand-dyed fabrics, hand-pieced over paper. I don’t know what size the quilt is; I haven’t measured it yet. All I know is that it’s as big as it needs to be. Unusually for me, I am using batting in this one: a real, proper quilt, though not one that will be functional.

More on this as it grows.

Have a safe and peaceful weekend.

    Such yummy colors in this, K, can’t wait to see the *big reveal* when finished. This moon is so like our real moon, a combination of many points of light & dark…

    Have a lovely weekend,

    Karen, I’ve had trouble responding to your comment on my blog, but wanted to thank you for your compliment; I’m looking forward to seeing more of your work, and sharing more of mine 🙂

  13. Beautiful! At one point in time, I wanted to try everything I saw that was related to quilting, such as hand dying fabrics, doing sun prints, etc. Right now, I’m content to just do what I do best which is rag quilting, with a little traditional and hand quilting thrown in for good measure. Keep up the good work. It’s fantastic!
