This past Saturday was a eclipse of the Full moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow, giving the moons' surface a blood-red color. Hence the name Blood-moon. In our area it was suppose to begin around 6:16 a.m. So, I was up and out of bed early, made myself a chai latte and out I went to see if it was visible. Perfect, you could see the beginning of the eclipse. In I ran, grabbed my husband, bribed him with a chai and down to the lake we went.
Love my full moon ritual, full moon shining in the window, hand quilting, all's perfect for a minute!
I added it to the other blocks on my design wall. The quilt starts in the middle with the "Mother Earth" surround by turtles and fish. (A piece of fabric my daughter marbleized when she was young and decided it looked like "twilight" represents the earth). Moons and suns circle around it clock wise in chronological order. Blank spots will be filled with pieced star blocks. All of the blocks are quilted and dated, someday I'll stitch them all together, probably just before I die;)
