Busy Monday.....hope to sew Tuesday.............



Every time I walk past my Many Moons wallhanging in my living room I notice certain fabrics that really make the design work well.




I like the busier designs in the batiks.  Neutrals like beige and brown make the brighter fabrics even prettier. 






This light print was used several times and really gives the feeling of wispy clouds drifting past the moon.





 I finished this in November last year and it has been hanging in my living room since then.  This is the best photo I have gotten so far and it still isn't doesn't show the rich colors correctly.

Why am I showing you this quilt?  Because I have nothing to show for yesterday.  I sewed preemie outfits for about an hour and a half yesterday morning, went to sewing circle in the afternoon, stopped at 2 stores on the way home, and then went out and dug up volunteer plants for over an hour last night. I was way too tired to sew or even cut anything last night.  This week is going to be pretty hot so my cool basement sounds like a good place to be and maybe I can get one or two quilts started today and tomorrow.

Some days are like that. We do things and are busy, but it seems like we haven't got anything to show for it. Hopefully you enjoy your sewing time today. Chris

The Many moons quilt is one of my favorites of yours. Always something new to look at and enjoy.

Hi Wanda,
I always love seeing your Many Moons quilt, such a perfect marriage of quilt design and fabric! I searched by the quilt title on your blog, and didn't see the beginning of the quilt - is it your design? Or a commercial pattern? Love the curved piecing, and I enjoy doing it. I know my daughter would love something like this - I made her a colorwash and she loves it! Thank you.

Many Moons - with the lovely variety of batiks always makes my heart sing.

Thanks for showing this one. The close-ups reveal aspects of color that the larger photo doesn't capture. I particularly like the mix of circle sizes...........makes me want to head to my extensive batik collection and give it a try (especially given my new interest in drunkards path block).

This is a gorgeous quilt, and I love that there is so much for the eye to explore. Maybe time to conquer those curves and make some "moons" here. I can't imagine I would do as well as your experienced eye for color, but we have to start somewhere.

I am happy to look at it again. I don't get to walk past it in your living room. It is lovely.

I like seeing this again too and hearing your reflections as you have lived with it for a while. It's a beauty!

I really love seeing this one again. It sounds like a crazy day yesterday. I hope you get to see today.

I love this quilt - it's good to see it again - keep sharing :)

Photos never do artwork justice. The true colors are always more brilliant in person.
It's wonderful that you enjoy your quilt so much - as, of course, you should. I'm so glad you kept it. Just imagine, it could've ended up with somebody who wouldn't have had the eye or sense to appreciate it for all it is!
