I intended to post today to tell you about a beautiful new gradient and the fabric of the week. Instead we had some sort of ghost in the internet last night that didn't want me to do that. But it did finally let me upload these two photographs. Well, I can be flexible so let's go with moons today.
I actually finished these 4 Loony Moony blocks in early December and I just forgot to post them. Every time I make one I'm certain that that one is my favorite. In this batch I love the light blue highlight in the bottom right one and the cross-over patterning of the upper right one. The lower left one is so wonderfully moody and the top one looks almost floral.
Here are all of the ones that I have done so far. With this many complete you can start to see the background effect that I am going for. I have dozens more blocks to make and I could easily see getting 2 quilts out of this set of blocks. I could also make one giant queen size quilt. I'll see what kind of mood I'm in when the blocks are done in about 10 years.
Progress will slow a bit now that football season is over. Once we get the kitchen/family room back together I will make a little progress watching movies and TV with Chris.
We hit a major milestone yesterday with the kitchen. We have officially made every decision that needs to be made. Now it's all on the contractor and I'm really happy about that.
I'll be back tomorrow with a beautiful new gradient!

Love the way it is looking! Love the gradated background. Congratulations on the kitchen decisions being done.

This is a great "show off" for the fabrics, both the moons and the "sky."

I seriously doubt it will take ten years for you to finish this - you're going to be too curious to see how it turns out!
