Dancing with the moon

Thank you for all your well-wishes for Dave’s grandma. They’ve made some changes to her medication, and as long as she remains stable, she should be able to go home tomorrow.

I managed to get all the blocks done for Jenn’s birthday quilt finally, so I carved some time out to put them all together into a top…


The picture really does NOT do this one justice (I was sewing at night, which I never do). All those pieces that just look solid black, are really purple, dark green, dark blue, and black and full of a mottled floral pattern. I’ll get better pictures when it’s quilted.


Here’s a closer look at the border. I didn’t piece it, it’s printed that way, and it was the perfect way to tie the gold, blues, and purples all together.


For the backing, I’ve got this lovely blue print (bottom) which is a compliment to one of the four patch pieces. The binding is this lovely golden fabric, which was used as the other part of the four patch.

I love it when a quilt comes together!

    Oh, wow…..you really got a lot done. I love that little Irish Chain thing you’ve got going on in the background. It’s going to be a real beauty!

    What an absolutely beautiful quilt top! The fabrics are wonderful. I love how the four patch corners and the sashing appear to be a nine patch at first glance. This will be a very special birthday gift.
