Moondance




“Well, it's a marvelous night
for a moondance”

~ Van Morrison


What better way to remember the amazing supermoon than a quilted table mat? I used the 6” AccuQuilt circle die to easily cut the moons, then appliqued them onto swirling black and grey 9” squares. Keeping the fabric flat and ravel free was easy: I used iron on interfacing before cutting out the circles. For quilting, I double outlined each circle in grey. This 35” square would look great on a wall as well.


Moondance
January started out cold and frosty, so we have mostly stayed in. Mornings and evenings by the gas stove are relaxing and cozy. On the days we had to get out, I was thankful for heated seats in my Escape. 

Of course, we don't have to worry too much about getting cold around this house. 

I happen to have one or two extra quilts lying around.
