Moon Windows Sashiko Wallhaning

My practice block is finished, it was a little difficult to get in the rhythm of making big stitches.
They say sashiko stitching is the hardest to master for traditional hand quilters.
But I'm ready to begin on the "real" blocks for the Moon wall hanging.

This is the wall hanging laid out on the carpet. (not stitched together)

All the moons are hand appliqued on, 3 from antique Japanese fabric.

I traced on the lines for the stitching,
Moon over Mr. Fuji.
The faint circler lines will not be stitched, and will rub off.

Pine trees.

Spider web.

And there's one more block in the wall hanging I forgot to post, cherry blossoms.

This moon quilt will be exquisite, it already looks gorgeous.
I love Project Runway, too -- have been recording the current season to binge on sometime soon. :)
