I've had a lot of hand stitching time lately and knocked out 4 new moons pretty quickly.
I love studying them as I make them and seeing the interplay between the 2 colors in each moon fabric.
About every 8 blocks I like to put them all on the wall to see how they are looking. I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEE these blocks. I have finished 37 and have 35 more prepared to stitch. I haven't decided what I'm going to make with them. I might do a wall hanging or a big queen sized quilt...or both. I've got plenty of shibori fabric to cut more if I want. I could see making tons more of these. Each one takes a little over an hour to stitch so they go pretty quickly. I have to wear a reading magnifiers over my glasses to work on them so there is a bit of eye strain involved and I have to be careful about that and make sure I have good light. But they are certainly like potato chips, you can't stitch just one!
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
