My latest Biscotti: "Ring around the moon"

My latest Biscotti: "Ring around the moon"

I am just finishing up my latest quilt "Ring around the moon" I learned a lot from this quilt. I challenged myself to only use 1 inch strips and feel it really helped defuse the original quilt top.
This quilt top ended up having 40 fabrics all Kona solids. (sorry I don't have a list) I just go into the store and point: "I want from that section to that section a half meter. After piecing the quilt top I do the chop.
This quilt reminded me of a ring around the moon I had just captured one earlier that week so I had a good reference.  I wanted to enhance the Ice crystal feel after all that is the cause of the ring. Light reflecting off the moon is passing through a layer of floating ice crystals and it creates a ring. So I decided to use my edge 10 ruler from Silly moon quilting Co. To create a greek key pattern in each 3 inch block.
I soon realised that the greek keys were beautiful but I needed something to tie it all together. SO, I was surfing the web and I noticed some cross stitching quilting that Chawne Kimber was doing on a quilt and I adapted mine to only cover the seams between the greek keys. I loved it. I reminded me of basket weaving or old textiles. it just gave a wonderful warm feeling.
Now I'm just finishing off this quilt I'l be sure to post picks in it's new home.
