|grumpy moon wreath!|
Which left me with lots of leftovers:
|so many moons, so little time|
So, recently, I took a few of the leftovers and some black and white fabric (which I also have tons of!) and put this together:
|starry night, foggy night, snowy night, moon.|
It has a double binding, which is a bit painful*, though not too terrible on a small piece like this (22x17"). It's a trick I learned at one of my guilds! So, the double binding:
Cut a strip of fabric 1" wide, fold in half, iron.
Line up the raw edges with the raw edges of your quilt, sew on with a 1/8" seam. Do not miter your corners, or you will regret it when you go to miter the next set.
Apply your binding the usual way.
*The only thing that makes it painful is having to go round 3 times, rather than 2. Otherwise, it's really quite simple.
And if anyone is interested in a moon wreath, I have some left, though not the turquoise one in this picture; I have purple or dark blue. Let me know, and I'll set you up an etsy listing. $35 + shipping.
Or you can make your own! Here is a tutorial I wrote up on Craftster.org.
