    Here is the pieced top, lap sized. This was fun to play with. The different color moons are the reverse sides of the same fabric.

    That looks great. Until I read it on here the other day I never would have thought to turn the fabric over. But that is just a great idea. Keep up the good work.

    I love that you thought to use both sides of the fabric. That's one thing quilters have over any other use of fabric...we can almost always use both sides!! :)

    The left side looks like a range of mountains, and the bottom moon is the color of the eclipse the other morning. I was just looking at that pattern the other day in an old lap quilting book.

    It is an old pattern. After I decided the size of the blocks, the moon is a plate of the scale I liked, and the mountain is a quarter triangle appliqued onto the block. Real easy!

    Lovely quilt Norah, I missed this the other day :oops: still betta late than never. I love that you used both sides of the fabric, very frugal of you, reminds me of our forebears :P . I would never of thought of appliqueing the triangle over the circle, very clever. I was looking at it thinking how do you piece that, You'd need to cut a wedge out of a circle and then...... you get the idea :P

    BTW love the pup in your new avatar, is he yours? :-)
