Many Moons

I am having a blast with customer Jane's quilt.  It's still on the frame, but I'll post a few pictures first.  This quilt is for her sister's birthday.  It consists of 64 quarter circles made into 16 full circles on square backgrounds -- all out of beautiful batiks. 

Usually when you sew circles, they aren't as round as you think they are, but these circles were darn near perfect!  So I put a spirograph in them, then added 36 rays around the central circle extending to the edges of the block.


There are two blocks that have very light batiks in the circles.  These two I put quarter moons into, because Jane had named the quilt Many Moons (talking about how old her sister is!) as a playful bit of whimsy.

I'm cleaning and making strawberry pie and getting bedrooms in order because my youngest son, Jon, and his family are coming for Mother's Day weekend.  A house is a house, and a bedroom is a bedroom, but a strawberry pie is outrageous!  Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there!


  1. Your strawberry pie is devine! How nice that Jon and family are coming for a visit!

  2. That pie looks great. Glad your family made it for the week end.
