One of the trickiest tasks was to find the right foundation fabric this time. A little alteration of the color, and this one was perfect. I arranged the panels on it to measure for size and placement. I cut the foundation several inches bigger than needed, and also cut a piece of batting to go beneath it.
Once I was sure of the placement of the panels, I trimmed each along with the batting and pinned them into place.
Although usually I would probably stitch the moons down first, working from the top downward, I wasn't 100% sure of the placement of the moons, so I stitched the panels down first, using a blanket stitch.
Ok, I rotated and moved the moons until I was satisfied, and then blanket stitched them down (not stitching through all the layers) with a contrasting thread.
Next week - backing and quilting
