Fabulous Night for a Moon Dance

I have been working on my challenge quilt for the group that makes the 12 inch by 12 inch quilts. The word this time is LUNACY. As soon as I heard the word the only thing that came to mind was the moon. I guess the astronomy background is coming to the surface again. So I went with it.

I decided to try Angelina for the first time to make a shiny silver-gold moon behind a tree. I decided to outline the tree in gold metallic thread to make it stand out against the dark sky. I love the piece of fabric I found in my stash for the sky. I is dark blue and black with spots of white that look like stars.  Now I just have to quilt it and finish the edges.

The other thing that is on my design wall is a lap quilt that I am making to use up my Christmas fabrics. Unfortunately I still have a lot of them left! This did not photograph very well in terms of color. Some of the fabrics are off whites, but mostly they are white.


Thanks for reading.



  1. Nice composition. I've not worked with angelina fibers but it looks like a good fit for your moon. Looking forward to how you transform his with quilting.

    As for the quilt with Christmas fabrics, I have quite a stash myself and even have a pattern set aside for them. For years now. Gotta get that quilt made, but I will be in the same boat as you - I'm sure I'll still have way more Christmas fabrics left over than I think there should be.

  2. I like the silhouette of the tree against the moon. Nice effect

  3. Hi Chris your quilt looks great, I have not used angelina. Cheers
