KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

Diary Quilt Tuesday
This past week my life was dictated by the moon!!!! It was so incredibly bright I woke up every single night unable to fall right back to sleep.
This is the inspiration picture outside my bedroom window that I used. I did wait until morning to take the picture! Even though in the picture the moon is small if felt much bigger at 2 AM.
All the fabrics are my own hand dyes. I dug deep in my box of fabrics to find the moon, which turned out exactly the way I wanted it to, it sort of glows. It is a little hard to see in the picture but the blue fabric is lighter at the top and darker at the bottom which feels like a moonlit night. This block only took 15 minutes to make. I searched for the moon fabric longer than I did to make the block. The trees are stitched in a dark gray and I ended up filling in some gaps with my black Sharpie to make it stand out a little better.
I am still plugging away on the quilt I can't show you. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
