About 12 years ago, Jenny Beyer came out with MoonGlow. This is a gorgeous quilt that I know many have had difficulty putting together. Well when they brought out the 10 year anniversary kit I broke down and bought it. The color play really is striking and most of it can be completed using paper-piecing. It has been sitting on the shelf for the last 12-18 months...until I get to that stack of the stash.

One night at club Georgia mentioned that she was trying to finish her MoonGlow but thought Susan would personally shoot her if she brought it to another UFO day. I chimed in and said that I would work on my MoonGlow if Georgia wanted to work together on the project. What was I thinking? this was not on my list of projects to work on anytime soon.
I am well on my way to completing the quilt with 6 design blocks done. However, I have been working on a design edit to add a large oval compass in the center as a medallion and adding a number of additional blocks that may be duplicates of the current design or additions from the Judy Mathieson Mariner's Compass. I think I have enough fabric but know that I can buy more through Jenny Beyer's online store.
I am taking my remaining blocks with me on vacation next week. It takes me 2-3 hours to complete one of the blocks and some of the remaining blocks are more complicated than what I have done so far. I may only get a couple of blocks done or I may complete the remaining 7 design blocks. Once I have the core blocks done I will really have to focus on that center design and see if I can pull it off or go with the beautiful quilt as it is currently designed. More to come
