For this quilt I selected a stencil of a moon with a star. It’s really easy to mark and quilt and I’ve used it many times before. I figured out how many moons I’d need to mark around the borders. Then I went back over each one to make the lines a little darker and easier to see while quilting.
If I’m not stressed with a deadline, I can really take my time with the marking process and it can be very relaxing!
I like to go over all the lines and fill in the stencil lines for a complete outline.
I used little squares between the sashes to help the rows line up straight. It looks like more work, but actually it’s easier than trying to match up rows with no intersecting seams.
I used the same squiggly quilting pattern across the blocks, like I did for Pure Quilt #2. It’s a super fun way to quilt across the blocks. Now on to the next quilt!
