I'm not sure what possessed me to put Mister Moon on this wild orange fabric. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I had to applique him rather than sew him into a block because I placed my images just a smidge too close together when printing. (He is another image from Graphics Fairy.) I also thought the turquoise binding was OK. I think the fabrics work together but I'm not sure Mr Moon is used to his best advantage. Perhaps that is what he is scowling about. More importantly, I used a fluffier polyester batting for what is essentially a whole cloth quilt. The puffiness made it shift around in funny ways and made it generally much harder to work with. I will stick with the thinner cotton batting for these projects in the future.
