I am making a challenge quilt for the 15 by 15 group that I belong to. The theme is CONNECTED. I have a digital fabric that I created last summer with an "image" of the moon on it. My quilt will be called "Connected to the Moon." I thought about quilting moon phrases on the quilt. Things like once in a blue moon, over the moon, shoot for the moon, crying for the moon, to the moon, Alice, etc.
Here is a photo of the fabric.
Do you have any suggestions on how I should do this? I would think that I want the sayings to be subtle so to not distract from the fabric and the image which is why I thought of stitching them as quilting.
Or do you think I should cut the fabric up in some way and incorporate other fabric with the sayings on them...either stamped or printed to make the quilt? The size of the moon on the original fabric is 8.5 in in diameter. The fabric itself is 15 in by 19.5 in and must be trimmed to 15 by 15 so the final quilt is square.
Or should I just quilt it as is and get rid of the notion of using words?
Thanks for reading and your suggestions.
