While traveling through deep space, you pause to look out a window and admire a nearby galaxy. It's rotational pattern is similar the Golden Spiral (Fibonacci spiral/sequence). This pattern can be found in many places back on Earth. I like the idea of this quilt even though my poor sewing skills have failed to reveal it properly.
I created this pattern to pay homage to one of North America's beautiful native creatures, the luna moth. It is comprised of mostly half square triangles, with some flying geese and quarter square components. I (self-guided) quilted this on my Simply 16 long arm on little foot frame.
I made this quilt to commemorate the 40th wedding anniversary of my husband and I, which is this month. Most of the fabric was from my stash, except I had to order a bit more light colored fabric and additional burgundy fabric for the backing.
I've had these charm packs sitting and WAITING for something this fun to put together. I held my breath as I sliced up the nine patches in hopes that I didn't encounter regret or ruler slips. So happy this quilt surpassed my reservations and came out super cute. 51" x 51"
My Mom really didn't' remember this project. It was with Apple Core lining stuff and many of them were already cut from paper for templates. When I got to looking through it and trying to figure it out I asked my Mom if it was okay to do something else since I really wasn't a fan of apple core, She said sure, she wasn't either. I added the deep burgundy and was able to get this nice lap sized throw. It will likely become a shroud.
