Many Moons........

I didn't get the hand sewing done until after dark so I will take another photo of Many Moons today with daylight.  I have an east exposure in this room so around noon is a good time for that.  The couch needs to move a couple inches to the right too.
When I went over to turn off the lamp on the left I thought this was a nice view of it too.  I'm glad I went with facings instead of binding.

It looks beautiful! I agree that the facing was a good choice.

I love this quilt. Yes, it looks great with no bindings. I must put that quilt on my to-do list. I started one a few years back but it went in a box and never returned to it. Too many projects to work on it now but I totally love, love the one you made for yourself.

Debbie said...

Outstanding finish! I love the soft effect you got without the binding. I would never get tired of viewing this one.

Gene Black said...

I agree that facings made this perfect. I was just reading how to do this last week in Libby Lehman's book "Threadplay"

Mary said...

I love the way this turned out and I agree that using a facing was the right choice.

Good morning Wanda.....It's a stunning work of art and it looks amazing in it's place of honor in your living room. I hope you never tire of seeing it there and admiring it, but just in case you do, I am well acquainted with someone who would love it and cherish it as much as you do. LOL Enjoy the incoming beautiful weather the next few days. I will be perfect weather for the Cub games on Tues. Wed. and Thursday. Go Cubbies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, Wanda, you've outdone yourself this time. Very nice.

I think the 'lighting' gives it a moody look - it's beautiful - I could have it on my wall and look at it every day. I read your facings link yesterday about facings, to see what you were talking about - I'm always learning something from you so thanks for always sharing your tips :)

Beautiful !!!

Candace said...

That looks really wonderful over your sofa. I bet it enhances the whole room. I agree about the facing. I will have to try that sometime. Do you know if people ever use this technique for bed quilts? Most of my quilts are large bed size quilts.

Deb said...

Just beautiful & looks perfect!

Sally said...

Just beautiful! How did you hang it?

Beautiful choices. Beautiful job.

Sally said...

Forgot to ask--did you draft the templates yourself or use purchased acrylic ones? Is there a pattern? Thanks. Sally

I agree with everyone - this is another beautiful quilt! You are so talented, I want to be like you when (if) I grow up! I just found your blog about 2 months ago, but I've read it every day since I discovered it. Thank you for your willingness to share your abundant knowledge.

OH Wanda ~ This is an extraordinary piece that is timeless. Your choice of fabrics and design is, as always, amazing. 'Many Moons' is truly a magnificent 'show stopper' !

I just read all of the comments and wanted to use some different adjectives than everyone else. And most were taken... (*._,*)

Mystic Quilter said...

This looks so good over your couch with the lamp light casting a lovely glow and I thinks it's super without binding.

JoZart Quilts said...

Many moons is so lovely, well balanced and whilst the colours are quite vibrant, they are very relaxing. I could rest with that myself but the sofa would need to face it!
Beautiful piece of fabric art.

This is just lovely, a wonderful quilt and inspiring - I so want to make one! Today for the first time in ages I finally felt able to sit down with my iPad and look at Bloglovin, just caught up with your posts and it was such a joy to relax and read about your efforts, I am sure I'm not the only one who thinks if you are going in slow motion that is regular speed for me!
