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.
