Binding started.............

I got the binding sewn onto the the batik 16 patch quilt and have 1/4 of the hand sewing done.






I designed 2 new blocks to replace 2 that I don't like very much.  Now I need to work on the half blocks and quarter blocks so I can finish this one.

















I took my daylight photo of Many Moons but I think I prefer the one I showed yesterday which shows how rich the colors really are.  The lavender walls are pale in the daytime, deeper toned at night too.

Hi Wanda, I agree the night shot of Many Moons looks better.. Beautiful wall hanging....

I always liked this quilt, but seeing it hung in its place--it is even better! What a delight always to see the effect of light on it whenever you walk in the room. Lovely.

It looks great on the wall.... but Many Moons... might be the wrong name... I see more suns than moons.... color-wise!!! I am missing my sewing spaces again!!!

Many Moons is beautiful and will be wherever you place it. The two new blocks are gorgeous and I especially like the pink one. I am waiting to see this quilt top finished.

I like how Many Moons turned out!! It looks great hanging in your living room. Lavender walls are a great color to mix with the bright batiks

Oh, I juar love the backing on the 16 patch- really an unusual fabric but perfect.

Interesting differences between evening and sunlight - I prefer the more mysterious evening photos, though.

Wanda, Yahoo, this is gorgeous to see up close!

So, what do you do with the blocks you didn't like very much and which, as a result, aren't making it into the quilt?

I went back and looked at your explanation of facing instead of binding. Great idea! I have a couple of quilts I maybe should have used it on. Now I know.
