Hello Moon, a Quilty Finish!

The final binding stitches were completed this morning, and I set out to take some photos of Hello Moon, the 2013 BOM I participated in from April Mae Designs. I have blogged a bit about it this past year, most recently here.
The Vegas wind had kicked up by the time I prepared to leave, but being that it is a small quilt, 36" x 48", I gave it a shot indoors. Actually, I gave it a lot of shots in hopes that a couple may turn out well.
To capture the entire quilt, I took the shot we all try to avoid - on the floor (yikes!)
Indoor photography is hard for my little old point-n-shoot Canon, especially at any distance. This is the difference with and without the flash.
I chose a poly batting for this one. It will be stored for a long time, and I wanted that puffy look. Plus, the perfect backing turned out to be one of the few poly/cotton blends I had in my stash, so it was a good way to use up both..
My finish was down to the wire! - Hopefully I am in time for AYOLF  linky for the Finishes Party at Sew Bittersweet Designs !

I am also linking up with one of my favorite link-ups, with Lyn at What a Hoot for BOMs Away:-)
And with Marelize at Stitch by Stitch for  Anything Goes Mondays, another favorite, and well, because it is Monday! BTW, Marelize is hosting a fun giveaway drawing there!

Thanks for reading, hope you have a great week!
One more photo, I love this one even though it is a  bit blurry...

  4. The first Hello Moon I've seen all finished!!! And I really love the way you've quilted it - nice motif work that works great with the theme, but still open enough to be soft and squishy. :D

  5. What a beautiful quilt! It must have been a lot of fun making the blocks, with the appliqués. I also like your quilting, especially the rounds between two curving lines. Like craters in bumpy soil. Is it destined to a child or are you keeping it?
