The Moonrise quilt is progressing well.
The fabric selection for the water and reflection fabrics was simplified by my decision to use only batiks from my stash. That narrowed down my options, which accelerated the decision making.
In the photo below, all the fabrics have been sewn together, except the horizontal center seam. The freezer paper (FP) is still ironed to the back, but the next step will be to peel it off, and sew the horizontal seam.
For the moon, I pressed the seam allowance over the edge of the freezer paper template, then top-stitched it to the sky background. For the clouds and the moon reflection I used the freezer paper (FP) piecing technique which leaves raw edges on the front. I’ve trimmed the raw edges close to the stitching, and after I remove the FP from the back, I will zigzag stitch over the stitched lines and the raw edges.
