Pink Moon Quilt

Pink Moon is the biggest quilt I’ve ever made.  I didn’t mean to make it so big, it’s just how it turned out.

I did use the brown fabric I bought on Friday, which was just right.   Tomorrow I’ll work on the backing and start putting the quilt together and maybe even get to start tacking it.

Pink Moon is already sold.  I had a few people ask about it.  Chris was interested in the quilt for her son. She told me he had some of Carol Conklin’s batiks and loved them.

Carol’s moon and tree batik added just the other element that the quilt needed.  The colors were just right but also how she represents the earths layering from earth to sky.  The same is evident in the “pottery shard” pieces that I made with the woven Guatemalan fabric and the cranes and butterflies I used to frame them.

You can see more of Carol’s batiks on her website Amity Farm Batik.  She reproduces her batiks on all kinds of functional art from housewares to clothing.  You can see them all and buy them here.

  1. If I had gotten all that gorgeous fabric you sent me earlier, I may have used some of it in this piece Fran. I will have fun making something else from it. THank you!
