Let the holiday Sewcation festivities begin!!

AHHHH after the last conference call this morning I officially started my sewcation holiday!! I don't know what it was but Santa, his elves or someone, something dropped off some inspiration for me today.  What did I do with all that inspiration??  I finished Moon Glow.  Yes, it's true, it's done, well, the top is done, the quilting is just pure fun!!  I really struggled with this one.  This quilt is going to get a nice fluffy wool batting to help hide some of the mistakes I made.  But its DONE!!!!  I didn't get pictures of the borders it was just too late.  I'll wait for the full reveal after quilting.  Here's the center.  Ok so this is a quilt for my nephew and his bride to be.  I want to give it a star wars related name.  I really think Death star is appropriate for the trouble I had with this one, but perhaps not quite the right name for a wedding quilt.  Any Star Wars fans out there?  Suggestions?

I've had something in on the frame the entire time I've been working on Moon glow, needed something to keep me going and fun.  I've got these three  little cuties to brighten my moon when moon glow cast a shadow in my sewing space.   I love using panel quilts for free motion quilting.  Ok I love any quilt that takes longer to quilt than it does to make :)
Love a full frame
The tumblers are the left overs from my Sonny quilt (a different nephews quilt).  I used this as leader and ender for Moon glow.  I love color just thrown all together.

I've got one more day to sew before the holiday activities take over.  Hope you find some time in your day for a little quilting fun.  Check out the linky parties on the side bar.

  3. Well, how about Endor? That was the forest moon in Return of the Jedi where the Ewoks lived. It is really a pretty quilt!

  10. Your Moon Glow really does have an aura of light in it, very good choice of colors. The tumblers are so cute and colorful, too. BTW, I found your post on Monday Making, my first time posting there. I'll keep track of your future projects.
